Occupying the entire third floor, this generously proportioned lateral apartment offers a level of space, volume, style and specification rarely, if ever, seen in Covent Garden. Architects Argent Design created graceful, light, open spaces and many of the building's handsome original features having been restored, with grand windows and generous ceiling heights complimented by a fully modern specification including integrated heating/cooling systems, underfloor heating, Lutron programmable lighting and bespoke high specification Intervari kitchens with integrated Miele appliances.
This grand corner building's prominent position between three iconic London landmarks, The London Transport Museum, Royal Opera House and Covent Garden's Market Building, afford each apartment commanding views to the West across the famous Italianate Piazza, which is fast gaining international recognition as London's premier cultural, retail, leisure & entertainment destination.
The Piazza is Covent Garden's most sought after address, with only a small number of residential apartments accessed directly from it, not to mention being a globally recognised Landmark in the heart of London's West End. Notable nearby restaurants include Balthazar, The Ivy Market Grill and Sushi Samba, as well as the much lauded Frenchie, Oystermen & Cora Pearl and recent arrival, Taiwan's legendary Din Tai Fung. The Henrietta Hotel on Henrietta Street has a fantastic cocktail bar & restaurant, and nearby Floral Court just off King Street provides a tranquil oasis with fantastic al-fresco dining at Petersham Nurseries La Goccia & and The Petersham.
A plethora of high end fashion & beauty retailers rub shoulders literally on the doorstep, including Tom Ford, Burberry, Gucci, Tiffany & Co, Aesop and of course the London's flagship Apple Store. The Royal Opera House dominates the piazza with the world renowned resident Royal Ballet & Royal Opera, along with many well known London Theatres within only a few minutes walk being home to some of the world's most popular stage shows.
