An imposing, Grade II listed, over 3,200 square feet, freehold property located on Britton Street; one of the most sought-after streets in Clerkenwell and one that is steeped in history. The house overlooks St John’s gardens and is moments away from Farringdon Station. The property was Developed by Simon Michell and built by George Greaves in 1723 and still retains much of the original joinery, including panelling and a number of cupboards.

Britton Street was laid out and built up between 1718 and 1724, replacing gardens and small houses on the backlands of Turnmill Street and St John's Lane. It was originally called Red Lion Street, after a tavern at the top end where it met Clerkenwell Green, and was renamed in 1937 after the antiquary John Britton. Of the seventy-odd original houses ten survive, one of which is this particular house. Most of these, however, have been re-fronted in whole or part. Just enough remains to preserve some sense of what a London guidebook of 1726 described as 'a fine new Street called Red-Lion-street, which is a very regular and beautiful Building'.

The house itself, is arranged over five floors and offers a very practical yet flexible layout with five bedrooms to first and second floors, a further bedroom and a self contained flat is positioned on the ground level with access to communal garden and St John’s gardens. On the ground/raised ground level there is an open plan living space leading to a modern extension where an open plan kitchen is positioned, a floor to ceiling window frames the gardens at the back of the property inviting the outdoors in. In the core of the house, the current owners have installed an impressive glass lift which connects the ground level of the property to a private and spacious terrace, on the first floor, making this house very accessible. There are also four full size bathrooms serving most levels of the building.

Britton Street is a quiet road located moments from Farringdon Station, one of London's most well-connected transport hubs, being serviced by the Metropolitan, Circle, Hammersmith & City Lines; National Rail services and will be home to the highly anticipated Eliabeth line from 2020, offering rapid and direct access to Canary Wharf and Heathrow.

Clerkenwell is widely regarded as Central-East London's most sought-after neighbourhood, having countless world-renowned independent shops, bars and restaurants. Being in the centre of Clerkenwell Village also means there are a number of food-markets all within a one-mile radius, including Leather Lane, Exmouth Market and Whitecross street. Historic City of London icon Smithfield Market in the neighbourhood.
