A charming one bedroom very clean apartment located in a Victorian Mansion, with one sitting room with a double sofa bed to accommodate a child or a guest for one or two nights, one double room with a very comfortable double bed, a bathroom with bath and shower, a kitchen fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave and cooking facilities.
My apartment is so quiet that at times you forget that you are in the heart of London. It is tucked away on one corner of the 4th floor - 64 stairs - which makes it very bright. There are plenty of windows as you can see from the pictures. Please bear in mind that there is no lift.
It is located near a garden Square and at the back there is a lovely courtyard with no traffic access.
It is just a 4 minutes walking distance from Holborn Station or just 2 minutes away for the nearest bus stop should you wish to travel by bus. I barely use public transport as everything is walking distance. British Museum 8 mins, Covent Garden 15 mins, Trafalgar 20 mins, Oxford Street 10 mins, Soho 13 mins. Leicester Square 15 minutes.
If you are here to explore London this is the right choice.
We are also extremely close to the legal hub of London. Originally this Mansion was built to accommodate the Barristers working in London during the week who would go back to their family country home at the weekend. The block was originally built on the grounds of Gray's Inn. One of the three Inns of Court in London. The other two are Lincoln's Inn and Inner and Middle Temple.
This apartment is ideal if you wish to stay just a week or a month. I have been living here permanently for 16 years this July and I still love it.
It is ideal for a single person, for a couple and even if you have a guest for a night as there is a double sofa bed in the living room.
Even though the flat could possibly accommodate 4 adults I do not advertise it as such because if you use the living room as another bedroom it will leave only the kitchen as a communal area and the kitchen is not big enough for that.
It will be my pleasure to meet you when you arrive and when you leave and I will also always be contactable by mobile or email should you wish to speak to me during your stay or before you book or arrive.
I am afraid but no pets are permitted and no smoking in the flat nor communal areas is allowed and please be respectful towards our neighbours.
