Covent Garden WC2
This wonderfully proportioned lateral apartment is situated on the third floor of The Beecham, a sympathetically restored and refurbished period building forming part of the Covent Garden Estate, and one of only a handful of residential blocks directly overlooking Covent Garden’s iconic Piazza
Featuring nine carefully considered apartments, The Beecham is highly prized for its architectural heritage, meticulous attention to detail and enviable location. A dedicated building manager is shared with sister buildings
The Russell & The Henrietta, with 24 hour security, street cleaning and estate-wide landscaping provided by the Covent Garden Estate team.
The apartment features generous ceiling heights throughout enhancing the sense of volume, harking back to the area's history as a home for the London elite. A spacious reception hall provides a sense of grandeur upon entering the apartment, interconnecting with the main living space via a cleverly designed study featuring bespoke joinery as well as a separate guest WC and well considered storage & utility cupboards
The main living area features full-height windows with direct views over the Piazza and offering a wonderful sense of light & space. Solid timber floors in warm tones twinned with a neutral colour palette and classic finishes create a feeling of calm and serenity in the heart of London's playground.
The separate kitchen features a mix of highly contemporary finishes, fully integrated Miele appliances, polished marble worksurfaces, a breakfast bar and exquisite dual aspect with direct views over the Market Building and across the Piazza.
The well proportioned open plan living space is filled with light, complementing the natural fixtures & finishes in warm tones, providing a perfect space to relax or entertain.
The principal bedroom has direct access to a private covered balcony accessed via full height French doors. Both double bedrooms are decorated in a warm & neutral colour palette with large windows allowing plenty of natural light plus bespoke mirror fronted built-in wardrobes.
Bathrooms are all finished in a contemporary classic style with bespoke mirror fronted joinery and walls & floors in beautiful contrasting marble.
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.
The Henrietta Hotel has a fantastic cocktail bar & restaurant, with nearby Floral Court providing a tranquil oasis 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.
