Camden apartment description

This bright, elegant Georgian (1760's) apartment is your perfect pied-a-terre in Central London. Situated in Handel St. a quiet, tree lined side street just off Brunswick Sq. in the heart of Bloomsbury, the flat is barely five minutes walk from Russell Square tube (Piccadilly line) or the red double decker buses on Woburn Place/Southampton Row. A pleasant ten minute walk though Russell Sq Gardens and you're at the British Museum and UCL Campus or walk North to Euston Rd for the British Library and St Pancras (Eurostar). To the South (two tube stops) or 20 minutes walk, takes you to Covent Garden, Shaftesbury Ave and the West End theatres.

The whole building was completely refurbished in 2005 and this first floor flat (US second floor) is a charming place to return to after a busy day of sight seeing or shopping. Retaining the original marble fireplace and cream painted shutters, the high ceilings and long Georgian windows give a feeling of space and light whilst modern, quality furniture ensures your comfort.

The queen-size bed has pocket spring mattress and the sofa bed is very comfortable. The arm chairs are of cream leather, the kitchen area is fully equipped and the pull-out dining table can seat four or more if necessary. The bathroom, newly refurbished in 2013 has a full walk in shower with 'deluge' shower head, heated marble tiled floor, heated towel rail, toilet and basin. The separate utility/laundry room on the landing has a sink, washer and dryer, iron/board and room to store luggage.

The Brunswick Centre, Bloomsburys new High St. is moments away and affords great grocery shopping at gourmet supermarket Waitrose, two Chemists, a Starbucks, the artsy Renoir Cinema and a selection of interesting restaurants and a small Farmers Market on Weds and Sats.
Travel to the flat is excellent with Heathrow just an hour away, straight through on the Piccadilly line. The Eurostar train to Paris/Brussels is 10 minutes walk or one tube stop, similarly to Euston Station. With Liverpool St.(Stanstead) or Victoria (Gatwick) a short cab ride away, this delightful home away from home has the advantage of being in a most central location and yet enjoying a very quiet and peaceful neighbourhood setting.

A recent visitor from VA says...'we LOVED the flat. The location was superb, we fell in love with Waitrose and enjoyed walking in the gardens nearby. The light was wonderful and the history of the house fascinating, we had never seen windows with shutters like that! You had thought of everything - the advantage of you the owners living here part of the time is that it is so well equipped and comfortable. We definitely want to come again.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Judith and Ed live in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Judith is a Brit who lived and worked for many years in London before meeting Ed in Rome one sunny morning in June 1994! They were married in London 1995 and she moved permanently to the USA. However...her family, children and grandchildren all live in London, with eldest daughter and family in Brussels. Having their own base in central London was something they wanted to have when Ed retired and now they are able to spend about three months every year in their own lovely little pied-a-terre on Handel St.

              Why the Owner Chose Camden:
              We wanted a flat that was as central as we could afford, with easy access by tube and by foot to theaters, museums and with local shopping. We stayed at the Russell Sq Hotel for a few nights to attend a family wedding and realized the area answered all these criteria. Quite by chance we found the property in nearby Handel St.It was in the process of being refurbished and the flats just coming on the market. It didn't take long to decide that we wanted to buy. The building itself is lovely, 1760's Georgian with long windows looking out onto a quiet side St. and an easy walk to the British Museum and moments from nearby shopping.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The flat is amazingly convenient for all the urban delights offered by being in such a central situation. The nearby Brunswick Centre re-opened recently with it's fun shops and restaurants and The British Museum is a 10 minute stroll across Russell Sq. But the extra bonus is the Eurostar Terminal at St. Pancras. In ten minutes or so you can wheel your bag up to the check in, hop on the early morning train and 2 hours later enjoy a mid morning coffee and croissant in Paris or Brussels!
