About the building
Kingsway Place is regarded by many as one of the most spectacular buildings in Clerkenwell and, set behind electric gates, sits in its own grounds with a communal garden, has an abundance of communal original features such as wall & floor tiling in the corridors and comes with a day porter.
Located within the Clerkenwell Conservation area, the building was designed by the Architect T.J. Bailey and officially opened by The Prince of Wales in 1893, it was sympathetically converted and continues to be one of Clerkenwell’s most sought after developments.
An exquisite duplex apartment with double height South facing windows and some stunning original features. Set behind electronic gates in its own grounds with a communal garden, the apartment comes with an allocated parking space and a day porter.
