About

This grade-II listed Georgian home sits in a charming conservation area often featured in films (the new James Bond one, most recently), and the location is both tranquil and central. Within 15-20 minutes' walk--usually over or along the Thames River--are Covent Garden, St. Paul's, Tate Modern, Westminster Abbey/Big Ben, 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 currently outfitted as a study with large oak desk and garden overlook, ideal for WFH); 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 have your meals amid roses, acanthus, and jasmine. Although the heritage zone is peaceful (no buses allowed, and barely any car traffic), it's a five-minute walk to great restaurants, bars, and coffee shops; legendary London theatres and fringier ones too; and the ever-changing cultural and food happenings of Southbank. Your block alone has a boutique British bakery, the iconic Kings Arms pub, an old-fashioned Italian barber, kind neighbors, and a procession of Citroens a la Roland Barthes, while a well-equipped private gym with monthly memberships sits 200 meters from the back garden door. For a better sense of this special street and heritage zone, this link might be a good place to start: https://flickeringlamps.com/2015/01/09/discovering-the-impossibly-handsome-roupell-street/
