There are few streets are aspirationally perfect as Bloomsbury’s John Street and there are few homes as tastefully refurbished as it is modern eclectic as this. Property of the week is a rare Georgian gem; by that I mean a stunning rare gemstone of significant carat rather than tiny and sparkling.

About the Area
John Street is one of Bloomsbury’s most prestigious addresses where Georgian houses were constructed for the lawyers of nearby Lincoln’s and Gray’s Inn. It was named after John Blagrave, a carpenter employed by Henry Doughty and so in testament to this history John Street becomes Doughty Street at the tiny Lady Ottoline pub which is now a little gin powerhouse. John Street is on the eastern fringe of Bloomsbury which owes its history and character to the Russell family who own the Bedford Estate. The Russell Group of Universities nearby are some of the best in the world.
Coram’s Fields is nearby for family open spaces and there are excellent shopping facilities available in both the Brunswick Centre and the boutique shops and restaurants of Lambs Conduit St.
The nearest underground station is Chancery Lane for central line services. In addition to this Farringdon and St Pancras International are both within walking distance for Circle, Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan, Northern and Victoria line services as well as extensive mainline rail and international Eurostar services.
The property is offered on an unfurnished basis with parking available in the mews.
Asking Price: £3,450 pw + admin fees subject to contract
