Striking Georgian house with enclosed garden in quiet heritage zone, Central London/SouthBank (great walkability/public transport)

This grade-II listed Georgian home is in a charming conservation area often featured in films (a new James Bond one most recently), and the location is both quiet and uncannily central. Within 15 minutes' walk--usually over or along the Thames River--are Covent Garden, St. Paul's, Tate Modern, LSE, St. Thomas' Hospital, King's College London, National Theatre, Old/Young Vic, BFI, Southbank, and Borough Market. Connectivity to the rest of London is equally brilliant because Waterloo Station, three blocks away, has five (!) tube lines and buses going pretty much everywhere. British Museum, SOAS, Birkbeck, UCL, Guys Hospital, Bloomsbury, City, and the British Library are all within 20 minutes.
The house itself has a double-sized living room; two bedrooms (one outfitted as a study with garden overlook); and a light-drenched kitchen/dining space where a long table sits in a vaulted glass conservatory. (That table is also a great place to write.) The conservatory door leads out to a private garden where, in season, you can dine surrounded by roses and jasmine.
Although the heritage zone is peaceful (no buses, barely any car traffic), five minutes on foot brings you to great restaurants, bars, and coffee shops; legendary London theatres and fringier ones too; and the ever-changing cultural and food happenings of Southbank. On our block alone you'll find a boutique British bakery, an iconic pub, an old-fashioned Italian barber, kind neighbors, and a procession of Citroens a la Roland Barthes, while an airy, well-equipped gym is 200 meters from the back garden door. For more of a sense of our special street and heritage zone, this link may be a good place to start:

Lovely house in a central and walkable neighborhood, with kind and responsive owners. We're planning a 2021 return. Excellent Marilyn Morningstar 10/5/2020 10:38:00 AM
