About the building
During the 19th century Covent Garden’s central market became London’s main wholesale fruit & vegetable market. The market dominated the area until the 1970s with the majority of buildings in the surrounding area servicing it. Warehouses were used for storage, in Shelton Street, Neal Street, Earlham Street, and merchants occupied office space. The mid-19th Century saw conversions of many of the market warehouse spaces into charming residential apartments, usually reserved for the workers of the market.
About the apartment
Positioned on the first floor (with no lift), this immaculately presented apartment has been decorated in a very traditional sense instilling much character within the internal floor space. The property offers a very well set out reception room with a tall celling height with beautiful original windows (with secondary glazing) allowing for welcoming natural light. The kitchen space is recessed with to the reception and is fully equipped with modern appliances however also keeps in line with the characterful decoration.
The bedroom space is very generous in size and accommodates fitted wardrobe space and further tasteful furnishings. The second bedroom again is able to offer great size and comfort. The bedroom space was decorated in neutral tones and used as a child’s nursery. the apartment is concluded via family bathroom.
About the Area
Neal Street is arguably one of London’s primary locations for independent fashion outlets and charming boutique eateries. Whilst we are also conveniently blessed with many high street brands the location is regarded as extremely urban. In additional to the fashion presence, the potential occupant of this stunning apartment will be pleased to access culture via the arts, museums and of course New Covent Garden Market positioned moments away. The property location falls within the Seven Dials, which was originally laid out by Thomas Neale, MP in the early 1690s, who cleverly laid out the area in a series of triangles to maximise the number of houses as rentals were charged per foot of frontage and not per square foot of interiors.
The location is serviced via Covent Garden (Piccadilly Line), Tottenham Court Road (Central and Northern Line) and Leicester Square (Northern Line and Piccadilly Line) Underground Stations in addition to Charing Cross Station for mainline National Rail services.
Asking Price: £800 pw + Admin fees
