A modern and spacious 2 bed apartment in London's West End, sleeps up to 5.
Conveniently located in the centre of London, within a minute’s walk of the British Museum and just 5 minutes to Covent Garden and 10 minutes walk to Soho and the theatre district. This beautiful apartment is just perfect for those who want to be close to many of London’s top attractions.
The property sits on the top floor of a period building and enjoys privacy and a lovely aspect. Guests should note there are 3 flights of stairs from street level (and no lift). The modern interior of the hallway and staircase is a fitting preparation for the interior of this modern city apartment.
The hallway and interior staircase are decorated with pretty stained glass flowers and, on reaching the landing, the walls are decorated with ornate pottery plates and artworks. To the right, the master bedroom, with a large built in mirrored cupboard and high ceiling is well lit with original sash windows, and the double bed is centrally situated with a second cupboard to the right and a comprehensive bookcase on the right wall.
Moving along the landing the second bedroom contains a double futon and a large sash window, a mobile wardrobe and shelf space. Alternatively, this space can be used as an office come study with a desk available, as there is an alternative sleeping area.
The very high ceilings in the open plan sitting room and dining area create a spacious feel and the modern kitchen has all the appliances to make self catering very easy. A narrow glass sided staircase leads up to a mezzanine level to the right of the living space which can be used as a sleeping space with a double mattress. Windows on both sides of the building, combined with a roof window, flood the room with light and make this top floor apartment an extremely attractive place to retire after a long day’s sight-seeing.
The stylish bathroom contains a shower and wc, has modern fittings and is arranged over a couple of levels making it quite unusual. And, it is a real dream to step out of the shower onto the heated floor! The light from two high roof windows gives you a lot of good natural light.
Flower boxes in all windows give the window views a natural touch. The abundance of light throughout the property makes for a very fresh interior and the wood floors throughout give a modern finish.
