Bloomsbury house description

Great minds

A home that inspires debates and demands late night discussions, let us introduce Old Gloucester Street. In the heart of historic Holborn, surrounded by green squares and Inns of Court, this splendid house is large and uncluttered, with just a few traditional touches to make it feel like home. This is one of the capital’s intellectual hotspots, close to the British Museum and the British Library. Hunker down in a bookshop, or stroll to Covent Garden for theatre and cocktails. And with much of the West End within an easy walk, this is a decision that needs no discussion.

Good day to you

Your host is an admirer of British tradition. A collector of art and artefacts, he’s delighted to welcome you to his London home.

A room of one’s own

Houses like these are rare indeed, especially with so many original features still intact. An antique bread oven sits alongside the kitchen’s contemporary units, while the sitting room has gilded art, a marble fireplace and a splendid grandfather clock. There’s a proper dining room, with space for eight to exchange ideas across the oak table, and a pretty patio garden.

All five bedrooms are simply furnished with the choicest pieces of antique furniture, rich floral fabrics, the occasional chandelier and of course our sublime White Company linens. And the three bathrooms are generously supplied with fluffy towels and our delicious White Company toiletries.

Mind’s eye

This home is in the midst of the University of London, and on sunny days the garden squares play host to all sorts of bookish types taking their chance to escape from the library. TS Eliot, John Maynard Keynes and Virginia Woolf are just a few of your illustrious forbears, and their spirits linger in the handsome buildings and peaceful streets. Visit the British Museum, walk up to Kings Cross and the British Library, or head down Oxford Street and into the West End. You’re an easy walk from Covent Garden and Leicester Square, and indeed, so central is your location that you may not need the tube.
