Covent Garden WC2
Occupying the entire second floor of this handsome period building in prominent position overlooking Covent Garden's iconic Piazza, this generously proportioned three bedroom lateral apartment offers a level of space and specification rarely available in London's West End.
Converted in 2012 from a former office building as part of the regeneration of the historic Covent Garden estate by custodians Capco, The Henrietta is without doubt one of the West End's most prestigious luxury residential addresses, comprising only four grand apartments, all within this imposing and lovingly refurbished period building, and one of only a handful of residential buildings directly overlooking the Piazza.
Occupying the entire second floor with direct lift access, this generously proportioned three bedroom lateral apartment offers a level of space and specification rarely available in Covent Garden. Architects created graceful livings spaces, restoring many of the building's handsome original features with grand windows and generous proportions, complemented by a fully modern specification including integrated heating/cooling systems, underfloor heating, programmable lighting, high specification kitchens, beautiful marble bathrooms and wonderful craftsmanship in the bespoke joinery throughout.
This imposing corner building's prominent position amongst iconic London landmarks including The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden's Market Building and St. Paul's Church with its tranquil public gardens to the rear, affords residents a rare opportunity to live in the very heart of the West End in an area recognised as London's premier cultural, retail, leisure & entertainment destination. The Henrietta and its sister building The Russell are served by a dedicated Building Manager, as well as the 24 Hour Covent Garden Estate security team.
Henrietta Street is one of Covent Garden's most sought after addresses, with notable restaurants including Frenchie, Oystermen, Cora Pearl and Taiwan's legendary Din Tai Fung, as well as nearby Balthazar, Sushi Samba and The Ivy Market Grill.
