Greater London Properties presents
A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this stunning Grade Two star listed freehold townhouse on one of the most desirable streets in Soho. This rare early 18th century street was initially developed by John Meard Junior, a Master Carpenter who worked on many great London churches, including St Paul`s Cathedral, with Sir Christopher Wren.
Dating from 1732, this superb property is steeped in history and benefits to this day from an abundance of period features including bracketed staircases, architrave doorcases, flush-framed sash windows, and wood panelled walls, fireplaces, cornices, dado rails and window shutters.
Extending over 2,494 sq. ft., this impressive townhouse has been wonderfully renovated to its present contemporary incarnation sympathetic to the historic nature of the building.
The ground floor entrance opens up to a spacious hallway, which leads on to a beautifully presented dining room, a contemporary, bespoke kitchen with breakfast bar and utility room, and a wonderful, quiet garden at the rear of the house. The garden has a travertine paved patio and borders lushly planted with mature bushes and trees. Back inside, climbing the historic stairs you are greeted by a landing flooded with natural light, a striking reception room facing Meard Street encompassing three symmetric period windows and high ceilings, in addition to a study with guest bathroom. The second floor holds another reception/media room with cinema system with surround sound, and a bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The top floor features the master bedroom with air conditioning, an abundance of fitted wardrobes and a bathroom with separate wc which provides access to a private south-east facing terrace. Additionally, the lower ground floor contains a private patio, two bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and plenty of vault storage. Most of the main rooms still have their original built-in cupboards.
This is an opportunity to purchase a historic 300-year-old property in the heart of one of the most vibrant locations in London – to enjoy the characterful space and to be its guardian for future generations.
Meard Street is one of the few surviving streets in London from the early 18th century and is partly pedestrianised. The townhouse offers easy access to the City of London, Heathrow and City airports and mainline railway stations including St Pancras International (Eurostar), as well as several of the world`s best universities. It is a short walk from Carnaby Street, Oxford Street and Regent Street, as well as numerous West End theatres, and is very well connected in terms of buses and tubes. The nearest Underground stations are Piccadilly Circus (Bakerloo and Piccadilly lines), Leicester Square (Northern and Piccadilly lines), Oxford Circus (Central, Victoria and Bakerloo lines) and Tottenham Court Road (Central and Northern lines and the soon-to-be opened Elizabeth line (Crossrail)). Even four of London`s Royal Parks are within walking distance.
