Swinton Street, Bloomsbury, WC1X - £749,995

A spacious two double bedroom maisonette set over the ground and lower ground floors of a Victorian terrace house within the "Kings Cross conservation area". The property has many period features including high ceilings, various fire-places and other details and sash windows throughout. There is an entry-phone system for secure access to the building.

There is a share-of-freehold title with a very long residual lease of 999 years remaining.

The reception is a large double length room with wooden floors, one open and one closed fire-place and a sash window opening onto the front light-well. The fitted kitchen leads from the reception and is in a rear extension area that opens directly onto the private garden. The master bedroom and second bedroom are on the raised ground floor and both have high ceilings, sash windows and fire-places. The tiled bathroom is at the rear and has a window and a corner bath with shower above.

There is the potential for extending the property at the rear where the current extension could be increased to the depth of the buildings adjacent which form a precedent. Any improvements would be subject to the necessary planning consents being granted. The decoration of the property is in need of some decoration although the property has been rented without break for a long period of time and is fine to occupy. The apartment would benefit from renovating and updating and combined with any extension it is possible to have an impressive family home in central London with a private walled garden.

The location is excellent for access to the City, West End or any part of London. 5 minutes walk to Kings Cross St Pancras Terminus with the Eurostar and direct link to Liverpool Street and Piccadilly Circus. Russell Square is also close to the property being an 8 minute walk. Farringdon Station is a longer 15 minute walk. Farringdon is the main hub station for Crossrail and will have fast access to Canary Wharf, Tottenham Court Road and Stratford. Chancery Lane is a 15 minute walk with the Central line. This location has proven to be an area of very high demand for renting making this property an attractive investment opportunity.

The location of the property means that Bloomsbury with Grays Inn and the picturesque, early Georgian Streets that were built near to the legal district including Lambs Conduit Street, Doughty Street and Bedford Row are in close proximity. The Brunswick Centre with the large Waitrose and Saturday farmers market is the closest main shopping area. Clerkenwell has many established restaurants, bars and other amenities including those on St John Street and around Smithfield Market. Covent Garden to the west, Kings Cross and Angel to the north and Shoreditch to the east are all easily reached.
