Stunning Grade II listed two bedroom crescent aparment

Built between 1842 to 1956, Percy Circus is a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian crescent with railed central oval circus garden lined with mature trees. The area is well known for its beautiful architecture and is reportedly one of the only complete residential circus crescents in this part of London. Clerkenwell and Percy Circus is in striking distance to London’s financial, legal centres and The West End.

The two double bedroom, two bathrooms apartment retains its own private entrance at lower ground level. The building's period architectural splendour survived The Blitz, retaining much of its original features, including wide sash windows, wrought iron railings and wide slab London curb paving. The building’s exterior benefits from two large arched storerooms.

A short entrance hall with bookcase shelving leads to stairs rising to the raised ground floor reception rooms. The principal drawing room is light and spacious with exceptionally tall ceiling heights and views over Percy Circus itself. The drawing room is open plan with the south facing dining room. This further room has pleasant views over the rear private garden and receives the mid-day sun, creating a relaxing and calm setting. The two rooms combine to measure (circa 8m x 3.5m) and the apartment itself measures an impressive 1,078sqft. A galley kitchen has been sympathetically extended to the original footprint and now provide a modern fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. This coupled with the principal reception rooms creates an ideal space for entertaining. The kitchen has steps to the rear garden that affords a quiet and private space.

The lower ground floor has solid hardwood floor and has two spacious lower ground floor double bedrooms. The principal bedroom has fully reclined glazed doors that open onto a patio with views over the south facing garden. This affords the room a peaceful oasis effect. To one side is a bathroom en suite and the bedroom is connected to an internal dressing room / study and or occasional third bedroom creating a useful space. To one side is a modern bathroom / wet room that also houses utilities (washer dryer) as well as serving as a cloakroom for guests. A further double guest bedroom has fitted wardrobes and views to the entrance light well.
