Covent Garden WC2
This wonderfully proportioned lateral apartment is situated on the fourth floor of Floral Court, a thoroughly modern development situated around a newly created courtyard between Floral Street and King Street in the very heart of Covent Garden.
31 luxury apartments of impeccable quality were developed, selling in record time and creating genuine alternative to other Prime Central London developments, putting Covent Garden on the map as a neighbourhood for discerning residents to call home.
A grand reception lobby with concierge welcomes both residents & guests, the opulent foyer echoing the feel of a luxury boutique hotel, with contemporary furnishings set against a backdrop of original ornate plasterwork and panelling dating from 1717. This slice of grand period architecture was once the headquarters of the London Fire Brigade, now seamlessly incorporated into a thoroughly contemporary development.
The apartment features generous ceiling heights throughout, enhancing the sense of volume, and a nod to the area's many finely proportioned period buildings and history as a home for the London elite.
The bright open plan living space provides a sense of connection to the city outside with its full height windows on two sides and abundance of natural light. Handsome oak floors flow throughout the apartment to compliment the other finely crafted natural materials, bespoke joinery, polished plaster walls and high-quality finishes. The kitchen features a statement island crafted from fine Italian marble with contrasting composite worktops, complemented by myriad high spec appliances from Miele including a practical induction hob with separate recessed downdraft extractor.
Floral Court offers the rare opportunity for outside space with a residential development in Covent Garden. Apartment 401 offers not one, but two private terraces with differing aspects.
Two of the three well-proportioned bedrooms feature en-suite bath & shower rooms as well as well considered bespoke fitted wardrobes in high quality joinery. The third bedroom opens onto one of the two terraces and has the flexibility to be used as a separate reception room or study, and bathrooms are all finished in a classic contemporary style, with a mix of high-quality fittings and natural finishes.
To create the building's iconic stacked shaping, architects KPF took their inspiration from Covent Garden's original market porter's stacked baskets. The beautiful period entrance lobby dating from 1717 has been meticulously refurbished with respect for the past, seamlessly incorporated into this truly 21st Century scheme.
Covent Garden is globally recognised as London's premier cultural, retail, leisure & entertainment destination. Notable restaurants include Balthazar, The Ivy Market Grill and Sushi Samba, as well as the much lauded Frenchie, Oystermen, Cora Pearl and Taiwan's legendary Din Tai Fung. Floral Court provides a tranquil oasis between King Street and cobbled Floral Street, with fantastic al-fresco dining at Petersham Nurseries' La Goccia and The Petersham.
The Royal Opera House dominates the piazza with world renowned residents the Royal Ballet & Royal Opera, plus many of the world's most popular stage shows can be found at the numerous theatres within a few minutes walk. Hidden away between Henrietta Street & King Street is the quiet public space of St. Paul's Church gardens, providing the perfect antidote to the hustle & bustle of the Piazza. The open space of Embankment Gardens and the river Thames only a short stroll across the strand, and the Southbank just a short trip across the river via either Waterloo or Hungerford Bridge.
