This five bedroom FREEHOLD house is located in the heart of London's Square Mile, offering views of a lake, a portion of the ancient City walls and a 14th century church. This Grade II Listed Building is set within the private gated square of Monkwell Square. Entering on the ground floor, there is an entrance hall with fitted cupboards and a door to the integral garage with a utility area with taps and plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer, and an entry-phone system controlled door to the square. On the ground floor there is a spacious bedroom, with mirror-fronted wardrobes, plenty of storage space and views of the old City wall (mostly medieval built onto Roman foundations).
On the first floor the bedroom (currently used as a study) has its own terrace looking out on to the old City wall, the church and one of the Barbican lakes. There is a family bathroom on this floor, and a separate WC.
Up another floor and there is a single and double bedroom overlooking the square with additional built in storage.
On the third floor is one of the two spacious and bright living spaces. The lounge area offers lovely views of some of the stunning architecture nearby and has bespoke fitted cupboards.
At the front of the house and up on a raised split level, there is the contemporary "Roundhouse" kitchen and dining space. The kitchen cabinets are cherry wood veneer with slate worktops, stainless steel splashbacks, an integrated dishwasher, Siemens double oven, combination microwave oven and hob with a freestanding American style fridge/freezer. The dining area overlooks the square.
The master bedroom is situated on the fourth floor. On the landing before it there is an exit leading onto the Barbican Highwalk and a separate cloakroom. The master bedroom is fitted with Poliform wardrobes and bespoke Poliform furniture. There is a completely bespoke en-suite bathroom with a built in dressing table, mirror, vanity unit, two wash hand basins, WC, and a Daryl glass shower unit.
Finally, at the top of the building there is a roof extension containing the second reception room which has a double aspect and doors on both sides leading onto pretty terraces. The South side terrace looks out to the City skyscrapers and down to Monkwell Square. The North side terrace offers lovely views of the lakes, City wall and St Giles church. These roof gardens have won a London Gardens Society gold medal in the past and are fitted with an automatic irrigation system. The top floor room also has a small kitchen area with a sink, fridge and the same cherry cabinets.
There is a Linn hi-fi CD, DVD and speaker system cabled throughout the house along with wi-fi and an alarm.
Location-wise, this generously proportioned house is in a superb spot for anyone wanting to be in the very centre of London. Within the Barbican itself is the world renowned Arts Centre with its concert hall, theatre, 3 cinemas, restaurant/bar etc., as well as the Museum of London. Within walking distance is both Clerkenwell and Spitalfields with their many shops, cafes and restaurants. St. Pauls Cathedral is around an 8 minute stroll away and Victoria Embankment and the Thames are also within striking distance offering walks along the river.
For transport, the house is only a 6 minute walk from Moorgate tube station (Metropolitan, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Northern lines) or Barbican and St Pauls (Central line) stations. These are great hubs to have nearby as they connect so many areas of London and beyond. From here you are only two stops from London Bridge, which offers links to Gatwick airport and the south coast, two stops from Kings Cross/St. Pancras which provide links nationally and internationally via the Eurostar terminal.
