Lincoln's Inn Fields,
A well proportioned two bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor of this handsome recently refurbished period building, benefitting from generous ceiling heights and large sash-style windows providing fantastic natural light and offering direct views over the leafy & historic Lincoln's Inn Fields.
A well appointed modern kitchen/diner interconnects via a grand archway to the generous reception room, all with large windows facing front over the garden square. The principal bedroom features an en-suite bathroom finished in a contemporary style to a high specification, with a further en-suite double bedroom and separate WC for guests.
Steeped in history, Lincoln's Inn Fields was first set out in its current layout during the 1600s and is London's largest garden square. The first garden to be recorded at the inn was the "Long Garden" to the north of the square, dating back to 1445 when it was quite literally an inn's garden.
Synonymous with barristers, the area was further developed in the late 17th century by Henry Serle (a barrister himself) and nowadays is a fantastic mix of modern and historic London, housing both office buildings and residential homes alike. Within the gardens are glorious flower beds, large grassed areas, tennis courts, a bandstand and a fantastic café / restaurant, with gates open to the public from 7am to 7pm.
Midtown is the gateway between London's buzzing West End and the City, with Lincoln's Inn and the surrounding area home to many of the UK's top Law practices and Barrister's chambers.
To the West, Covent Garden offers world class retail, dining & entertainment with London's 'Theatreland' home to some of the finest and most popular productions in the world. Nearby Lambs Conduit Street offers a genuine village vibe with a number of independent coffee shops and varied retailers rubbing shoulders with boutiques from more established international brands and excellent restaurants including the renowned Noble Rot and local institution Ciao Bella. To the east, the financial centre of the City of London is easily accessible from Lincoln's Inn along with the South Bank, River Thames and many of London's wonderful parks and open spaces within easy reach, as well as some of London's top educational institutions including the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE), Kings College, and University College London.
Lincoln's Inn Fields is located near various tube stations including Holborn (Piccadilly & Central lines), Covent Garden (Piccadilly line), and Temple (District line)
