Hands up who knows what this home used to be. Built of the finest Victorian bricks, The Old School is one subject you’d happily learn all about. Wisdom was once imparted within these walls, when the air echoed with eagerly scratching pencils. But instead of times tables, you’ve rather more elegant furnishings now. The walls are a brilliant white, the sash windows shinier than the brightest teacher’s pet. And your catchment area couldn’t be better. Get a history lesson in the British Museum, or spend a free period in the cafes or smart shops nearby. It won’t be long before you’re feeling top of the class.
Your hosts have recently traded city life for country air. Two of their children are still at school, the other grown up and living in Hong Kong.
Minutes from two tube stations, The Old School is as quiet as a hushed classroom. Cast an eye over its handsome bricks before trooping inside to the open plan sitting room. Daylight glows across its soft sofas, bright walls and wooden floor, while the dining table seats six. Sit back and banish all thoughts of homework, before testing your culinary skills in the modern kitchen.
You’ve a double bedroom that’s simple and serene, as well as an ensuite laden with White Company toiletries. Head upstairs to see the sweet single bedroom, temptingly tucked away and with a chunky armchair to squash into before bed. Sunlight fills the master bedroom, pouring through its large sash window. You’ll find its queen bed waiting beyond an arched doorway and wrapped in some stylish shelving. Its ensuite is bright and gleaming.
Holborn is where barristers take their first bewigged steps, and its ancient, cobbled Inns of Court make for a splendid stroll. Beside the history in the British Museum, you’ve the medical curiosities in the Hunterian Museum, as well as paintings and antiquities at the Sir John Soane’s Museum. When school’s out, dine in one of Clerkenwell’s esteemed eateries or take a shopping trip to Oxford Street. You can walk there in just fifteen minutes.
