We are delighted to be launching for sale, this wonderful penthouse apartment with a spectacular roof terrace, in this Grade II listed building on Bloomsbury's finest Georgian tree lined street.

Built in 1938, at the end of the Art Deco era and the birth of Art Moderne, Haines House was designed by the architects Denis Edmund Harrington who were an Associate of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) from 1928 and a fellow from 1941, with the first occupants of the building being Linotype and Machinery Ltd a printing and engineering company.

It is a striking building incorporating many of the distinguished qualities associates with Art Deco such as vertical lines, large windows, bold geometric forms, classical elements and rich materials. Associated with glamour, luxury and fine craftmanship, nothing about Art Deco is inexpensive, it is a celebration of modernity and progress.

Recently re styled and upgraded by the current owners this apartment is an exceptionally fine home, filled with light throughout and the most wonderful views. Lateral in space, the accommodation comprises a generous hallway with good storage, one of the largest principal bedroom suites I have seen with ample built in wardrobes, ensuite shower room and its own private balcony. There is a further guest bedroom which incorporates a study area with built in wardrobes and a guest bathroom. The entertaining area is an impressive space intelligently divided into dining, living and kitchen areas with access to a private roof terrace with outdoor lighting, water and storeroom. The views from the terrace are breathtaking with numerous London Landmarks visible as well as a 360-degree view of the London Skyline, it is a perfect entertaining area.

John Street runs off Theobalds Road and towards Doughty Street in the Bloomsbury conservation area. There is a keen sense of community locally, being close to the Charles Dickens Museum, The British Museum, Senate House, The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, The University of London, The Royal Academy of Arts and Great Ormond Street hospital to name just a few well known landmarks.

Lambs Conduit Street which has been voted one of London's top five shopping Streets, offering a diverse and eclectic mix of independent shops, restaurants and wine bars is a short walk away. The restaurants and local shops of Exmouth Market and The Brunswick retail centre are also nearby.

John Street is superbly located for easy access to the West End, Kings Cross and the City. Russell Square (Piccadilly line) Holborn (Central and Piccadilly lines), Chancery Lane (Central line) and Farringdon underground and mainline station (Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith and City and Elizabeth Lines) are all nearby.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for someone looking for a unique Bloomsbury home.
