Full description

Located next to Sadler's Wells Theatre, New River Head is possibly the most magnificent building set in the largest private gardens in EC1, considered by many to have the most impressive entrance hall, formerly the Rental Ledger Hall, renamed the Revenue Hall. The site is of great historic importance which during the reign of King James I was developed by Sir Hugh Myddleton, a goldsmith, as a source of providing fresh drinking water for London. The channel, which came from Herfordshire, arrived in Clerkenwell at The Round Pond. In later years The New River Head Company was taken over by the Metropolitan Water Board which became Thames Water. The New River Head was constructed between 1915 - 1920 to a design by Herbert Austen Hall as the headquarters of the Metropolitan Water Board and it was listed Grade II by English Heritage in 1950. The 'Oak Room', which was commissioned by John Grene in Circa 1693, was retained and installed within the New River Head and is a remarkable example of a historic preservation comprising carved friezes, overmantel with the arms of William III and relief panels depicting dolphins, swans and a mermaids. This significant and grand apartment, arranged over two floors, is quietly situated at the rear of the building with views of the rose garden, the Italian garden and the original surviving portion of the round pond wall. Meticulously presented by the current owners the apartment has a wonderful sense of elegance and grace with immense ceiling heights in both reception rooms. Further accommodation comprises a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms, guest bathroom and comprehensive fitted kitchen. The apartment also has the benefit of a secure parking space, 24 hour porter and access to wonderful communal gardens. Located on Rosebery Avenue, close to the junction of St John Street, it is a short walk from the eclectic caf?s, restaurants and bars of Exmouth Market and 10 minutes by taxi from the West End. Farringdon (Hammersmith and City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) and Angel (Northern Line) are a short walk away as is St Pancras International with direct access to Paris. With the completion of Crossrail (2019), Farringdon Station will have direct connections to Canary Wharf as well as Heathrow, City, Gatwick and Luton International Airports. This really is a fabulous apartment which would make the most wonderful London home or rental investment.
