This wonderful apartment is set on the fourth floor of the Frewell Building in the impressive Bourne Estate, bordering the districts of Clerkenwell and Bloomsbury.
The property itself is not lacking for space, offering a total of 579 square feet. The size of the already spacious reception is amplified further by the windows that overlook a well-kept communal green. The kitchen offers ample space for a table and chairs, along with an abundance of surface and storage space. The bedroom is a good-sized double, and the bathroom suite offers both bath-tub and a shower-over-bath.
Further benefits include gas central heating, copious amounts of storage throughout (created through efficient use of space), and a low annual service charge. The development has planned works for installing new windows across board; replacing the current windows with modern alternatives of equal grandeur.
The Bourne Estate is favourably located and caters well to those that utilise public transport. Chancery Lane tube station is moments away for those needing access to the Central line while Farringdon’s transport hub is also within walking distance – providing easy access to destinations on the Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan lines, along with Thameslink rail services.
The Inns of Court barrister chambers, a plenitude of trendy businesses surrounding Leather Lane market, and an assortment of leisure facilities are all just a stone’s throw away from the property. However, despite such a central location, the property manages to retain its residential feel through its use of greenery to both sides of the flat.
Portpool Lane is within the historic manor of Portpool and can be traced back as far as the 12th Century. The Bourne Estate itself was constructed between 1905-1909 and its design has highly influenced developments as far away as Vienna where architects used its model to create residential homes after the first world war. Due to their design and importance the blocks are now Grade II listed buildings.
