Fantastically spacious, bright two-bedroom property now available in a much desired, Victorian brick building between Clerkenwell and Bloomsbury. This large flat is in very good condition and boasts two double bedrooms (with scope to create a third), separate living room, separate kitchen, and bathroom.
The master bedroom and living room are both south-facing and flooded with light through the large sash windows, creating a space that is also a quiet, hidden sanctuary tucked away from the hustle and bustle of central London.
The lease has over 100 years remaining and new owners would benefit from a low annual service charge for such a well-maintained, centrally-located block. The Inns of Court, many barristers' chambers and trendy local businesses around Leather Lane market are located within a stone's throw of the property and, despite the West End being only a short walk away, the building maintains a residential feel in a quiet, green space. Nearby transport links include Chancery Lane tube (Central line) and future Crossrail hub Farringdon station.
Portpool Lane is within the historic manor of Portpool and can be traced back as far as the 12th Century. For many years it was owned by the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's Cathedral, the Bourne Estate itself was constructed between 1905-1909 and it's design has highly influenced developments as far away as Vienna where architects used it's model to create residential homes after the first world war, due to their design and importance the blocks are now Grade II listed buildings.
The flat's impressive location lends itself perfectly for anyone looking to live in a secluded spot and still be just a few minutes walk from the eateries and cafes around the Farringdon and Clerkenwell area, transport links across London can be found on the doorstep with both Farringdon and Chancery Lane stations a short distance from the flat.
This property at Portpool Lane could be ideal for a purchaser considering a project as there could be the opportunity to reconfigure the living accommodation to create a third bedroom (subject to planning permission) and could also suit a buyer looking for a wealth of space and a convenient location within walking distance of both the city and London's West End.
