Georgian splendour with a modern day Clerkenwell twist
Wilmington Square, WC1
“This lower ground floor flat with a stucco fronted Georgian building will be lovely and cool if we ever get a summer!
The current owner of our property of the week has a keen eye for style and has tastefully and painstakingly refurbished the one bedroom apartment inside and out. The property has sole use of the front and back garden, the latter being south facing and finished with Bisazza Italian mosaic tiles. The reception room has grey solid oak oiled floors, bespoke mirror by Clerkenwell based designers Ochre and a vintage chandelier. The wallpaper in the bedroom and reception room are by Neisha Crossland whilst the hallway wallpaper is by Allegra Hicks. The kitchen has been immaculately finished to include corian worktops and the large relaxing bathroom benefits from a rolltop bath.
Many of the properties bought by investors for the rental market have a developers high specification but can feel somewhat generic. This apartment is the antidote to those properties as much thought has been put into making it unique. Wilmington Square was created from 16 acres of the Earls and the Marquesses of Northampton’s Spa Fields Estate and is an example of an early 19th century Georgian Square. It is ideally located being moments from the independent shops and cafes of Exmouth Market and Amwell Street as well as walking distance to Angel, the City and the West End.”
