Seven Dials WC2
Located within Seven Dials Court, a secure gated modern complex in the very centre of Covent Garden's Seven Dials village, this recently refurbished and light filled duplex penthouse is arranged over the second & third floors and boasts a large private roof terrace.
The upper floor living space comprises a well-proportioned reception room and separate dining room, both featuring wonderful vaulted ceilings and access to the roof terrace, as well as a separate modern kitchen. The floor beneath offers three generous bedrooms, the master with a large dressing area and en-suite bathroom, and two further guest bedrooms sharing a family bathroom.
Seven Dials has an interesting history, originally developed by Thomas Neale in the early 1690's with a view to attracting affluent residents, however for much of its early history it was full of gin shops and ne'er-do-wells, with a pub on every corner (only The Crown remains today) and a series of interconnecting tunnels between each, perfect for a quick escape. The area became regarded as somewhat of a slum, even referenced by the great Charles Dickens himself.
Nowadays, Seven Dials has more of a village feel much closer to Neale's original vision. The eclectic mix of cobbled streets, historic architecture, independent boutiques, theatres, restaurants, coffee shops, plus the welcome addition of the fantastic Seven Dials Market and of course the iconic sundial, give the area a unique atmosphere within London's buzzing West End.
