The boxes are unpacked, the pictures are hung and the kettle is on! The new and improved TB_HQ is open for business at 31 Long Acre in the centre of Covent Garden, the very heart of London’s bustling West End.
Our shiny new HQ is located in a handsome listed building situated about half way along the south east side of Long Acre. Originally built in 1860 in the Venetian style, the building was at first a banana warehouse serving nearby Covent Garden market and at one time the basement was apparently filled with fossilised Christmas trees!
Subsequently 31 Long Acre housed a coach and harness manufacturers, hence the striking gold lettering on the upper floor parapet wall stating boldly ‘CARRIAGE MANUFACTORY’. For many years the building was home to a well known booksellers and often referred to as the ‘most beautiful bookshop in London’ . Easily one of the most architecturally interesting and unique buildings on the street, the striking facade of pink stone features intricate barley-twist detailing and ornate window frames proudly painted ‘Covent Garden Green’, a colour many will be familiar with from the steelwork at the market hall covering the centre of Covent Garden’s famous piazza.
We’re loving our new home, perhaps we can help you find yours? Whether you’re looking to buy, sell, let or rent, curious about the current market or just fancy shooting the breeze about anything West End related, pop in and say HELLO
