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 light filled duplex is arranged over the second & third floors and boasts a secluded terrace and further balcony off the principle bedroom.
The lower floor living space comprises a well-proportioned reception room and open plan dining space which has access to a secluded terrace. There is also a good sized separate kitchen with views over roof tops and down onto Shorts Gardens. The floor above offers two generous bedrooms both with vaulted ceilings. The principal bedroom has 2 large double doors that open up onto a balcony. There is a large en-suite bathroom and a further good sized second bedroom which is served by a large shower room.
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.
