This week’s property of the week is excellent in that it is generous in size and proportion and benefits from two private terraces. It was converted at a time when squeezing lots of tiny units (or “value engineering” as we call it) was not the top priority. The result is a pleasant surprise.
About the Building
The building, Da Vinci House, was originally the home of Punch Magazine, established in 1841 and known for its humour and satire. It is because of this British publication that we have the “cartoon” as we know it today. The building is now named after Leonardo da Vinci as a homage to Clerkenwell’s Little Italy status as an ex-pat residential location.
About the Apartment
With an unusual and well executed cork wooden floor, bespoke shutters and an impressive open plan kitchen, the entertaining space is superb. Both bedrooms are generous doubles with excellent storage and the two terraces have been well looked after. The internal space is 1408 sq ft (131 sqm) excluding the terraces.
The building is located on the corner of Saffron Hill and St Cross Street between London’s famous diamond district, Hatton Garden, and Farringdon Road from which Farringdon station takes its name. The City of London, Inns of Court, St Pancras International and West End are all within walking distance.
The nearest station is Farringdon which will offer Crossrail services from 2018 and currently offers mainline rail services as well as Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Circle line services.
The property is offered on a flexible furnishing basis with the asking price of £850 per week subject to contract.
