Designed by renowned architect Henry Flitcroft, 33 & 34 Craven Street were originally built around 1731 (with later additions in 1792 plus further alterations in the 19th Century) as part of the Craven family's development of their Brewhouse Estate, for which Flitcroft created the masterplan.
Originally known as Spur Alley until it's redevelopment 1730's, over the years, this quiet street of predominantly handsome Georgian houses has been home to a number of notable historical figures, including Founding Father of the United States Benjamin Franklin and Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick.
Located just south of the Strand, Craven Street is close to many iconic London landmarks including Trafalgar Square, Whitehall, Covent Garden and the River Thames, as well as the wonderful Victoria Embankment Gardens, one of central London's hidden gems.
In recent years Covent Garden has become a globally recognised centre for culture, retail, dining and entertainment, offering a unique and peerless mix of lifestyle attractions catering to both the domestic and international market.
Residents of Craven Street are perfectly positioned to travel and explore London on foot, with the West End, Mayfair, the South Bank, River Thames and many of London's wonderful parks and open spaces within easy reach, as well as the City of London and some of London's top educational institutions such as Kings College, University College London and the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE).
