Covent Garden WC2
Without doubt one of Covent Garden's finest homes, this exceptional lateral apartment occupies the entire first floor of a landmark Georgian building with seven incredible full height windows overlooking the Piazza. The sense of space and volume within this one-of a-kind apartment is breathtaking
Originally built in 1716 as Russell House, so named for it's original occupant Lord Russell, First Lord of The Admiralty, this Grade II listed building was designed by renowned baroque architect Thomas Archer.
The apartment occupies the entire first floor having been meticulously restored as part of the redevelopment of the two adjoining buildings at 42-43 King Street in the early 2000's, having been in the same ownership ever since.
Many original period features have been preserved or restored, including original fireplaces & surrounds, doors and ornate baroque mouldings, panelling and cornice details throughout. The sense of light, space and volume is in abundance, unrivalled in Covent Garden, and perhaps the whole West End. This truly is one of the most spectacular and unique apartments offered to the market in the past two decades.
This unique lateral apartment offers a rare opportunity to live on the Piazza, only moments from the renowned Royal Opera House in the heart of the Covent Garden Estate, with truly world class shopping, dining and leisure opportunities literally on the doorstep.
King Street is one of the West End's most sought after addresses, being part of the Covent Garden Estate and located close to iconic London landmarks including The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden's famed Italianate Piazza and St. Paul's Church with its tranquil public gardens. Being located in the very heart of London, residents are perfectly positioned to travel and explore on foot. The West End, Mayfair, the South Bank and River Thames and many of London's wonderful parks and open spaces are within easy reach, as well as the City of London.
