    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Enjoy city living at its very best. There's a great view of St Paul's Cathedral and 'The Shard' from the corner of the street, 30 seconds away. It's a very short journey by red bus into the West End or Waterloo, for London Eye and Southbank arts quarter.

    This large and luxurious apartment blends elegant modernity with original features to create a calm, comfortable environment. Situated in what was formerly a warehouse, now converted to a very high specification, for residential use.

    The apartment retains 19th century oak floorboards, tall arched windows and a feature wall reveals the loveliness of the original brickwork. Ample, open-plan living space incorporates kitchen, dining and sitting space. All pieces of furniture originate from Italian design houses.

    Additional Location Information
    An excellent, central location in the borough of Islington, five minutes walk from the border with City of London. It's a quick and easy journey to/from the West End (c.12mins) or to Waterloo (for the arts quarter of Suthbank).

    This is one of the most historic parts of London. The name Clerkenwell derives from Clerk's Well, the clergymen's water supply, drawn up on Farringdon Lane from the 12th to15th centuries. In the 17th c., Oliver Cromwell owned a house in Clerkenwell Close. Early in 20th c.,Vladimir Lenin (who lived nearby) and Josef Stalin would meet in The Crown & Anchor pub on Clerkenwell Green.

The furniture in this flat was to a high quality. The bed in particular was comfortable, something that's been a problem in short-term let apartments. The location is outstanding, with close proximity to good grocery stores and many interesting pubs. It seems to be an area where many people in their 20s live. We went to the Chop House, just... more

This is a nice central flat. When they say self catering it means you need to provide/purchase your own soap and toilet paper. I have stayed at many self catering flats and never experienced this bare bones level of service. Very noisy on Fridays from Betsy Trotter pub. more
