Our home

We offer a small studio apartment in an historic part of central London suitable for 2 people. The apartment is situated in the famous Art Deco building called Florin Court located in Charterhouse Square, Clerkenwell. The building exterior appears as 'Whitehaven Mansions', the fictional home of Hecule Poirot, in the television series. It is very small but perfect for London and benefits additionally from the attractive building facilities. Any exchange does not need to be simultaneous.

The apartment comprises a hall, living room/bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The comfortable living room has a sofa, armchair, dining table, television, and storage. Sleeping is on a double bed that pulls down from the wall (a wallbed). There is a large window giving views over the City of London to the east; it makes a wonderful nightscape. Separately, the newly fitted kitchen has a electric hob, fridge, microwave and views to the south. The bathroom is also newly fitted with a walk-in shower, basin and WC.
Outside the apartment you have use of the facilities of the building. These include a swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, gym, lounge area(with wifi access)in the basement, and a roof garden ten floors up that has seating and tables and splendid views over central London. There is also a laundry in the basement. There are 2 lifts to all floors.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is located in Charterhouse Square in historic Clerkenwell. It is on the western edge of the City of London, just east of Smithfield Market. Close by is the oldest church in London (St Bartholomews). The neighbourhood is rich in all manner of restaurants, cafes, pubs - buzzy, but rarely too busy during the working week, and quiet at the weekends. Nearby for high class 'culture' is the Barbican Arts Centre which has cinema, theatre, music and art.
The general location of the flat is hard to better. Pretty much the whole of central London in (half hour) walking distance - Islington to the north, St Pauls and the river to the south, Covent Garden, Bloomsbury, the West End, to the west.
For transport, the Barbican Underground station is round the corner. This gives access to the whole of London underground. It is one stop from Farringdon (for trains to Gatwick and Luton airports) and two stops from Kings Cross/St Pancras (for Eurostar to Europe, underground to Heathrow, and trains to the north of England).
