It is not hard to see the benefits of living in EC1, an area which seems to grow more exciting and diverse every week. With new exciting developments completing in the area in the next few years, such as Crossrail (completion 2018) and a new Redrow scheme coming to the Barbican in the shape of the old YMCA tower on Fann Street; now is as good a time as any to buy into EC1.
The area has a lively, village feel to it, with Charterhouse Square as the green heart and many unique, local businesses can be found in the cobbled streets which lead off it. The quarter has an endless supply of bars and restaurants from high end eateries such as Smith’s of Smithfield and Club Gascon to sweet, trendy little coffee joints like Ask for Janice. Historic attractions like The Charterhouse and Smithfield Market for example, are just as at home here in EC1 as offices, restaurants and residential buildings.
Frank Harris & Co. have just taken on a fantastic property in Cathedral Lodge, a smart portered building nestled between Charterhouse Square and The Barbican Estate. Nicely positioned to enjoy Farringdon, The City and Islington to the North. The property has two bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and is in immaculate condition with wooden floors throughout. The kitchen and bathrooms are very good quality, having been updated within the last five years with good quality, John Lewis fittings. The property is quiet and peaceful despite its excellent, central location and has an abundance of natural light due to the large windows found in each room. A secure parking space is the cherry on the cake of this brilliant offering. Please call the City office on 020 7600 7000 to book a viewing.
