London Apartment Rental Photos and Description
It’s all bloom and no gloom in this modernist two bedroom apartment
With its Palladian portico and discreet dome, the University of London is a grand old sight. One of the oldest members of the Bloomsbury Set, its pale stone pillars prop up intellectual and literary London. But it's not the only behemoth in the area- the Brunswick Centre is a modernist gem surrounded by Georgian beauty that has resisted attempts to raze it to the ground. Above it is O'Donnell Court, a third floor, two bedroom apartment. Inside you'll find iconic 20th century furniture, and outside, a large balcony- from which to view your temporary fiefdom.
A stylish maven, your hostess left the romantic Cumbrian fells for modernist London when she arrived in the capital to work in the fashion world. Now retired, she spends a few months of the year in Australia visiting her grandchildren, and scuba and sky diving.
20th Century box
Plastered walls look down on the sitting room and kitchen, with its professional range cooker, and concrete island. Arrange yourself on the modernist suede sofa for a cup of tea, gather around the dining table beneath the glass roof, or enjoy a glass of something on the balcony. Back in the corridor low lighting leads seductively to the bedrooms, one containing a double futon atop a red lacquer platform and a leather desk chair. The second is dominated by a large steel double bed and is lit up by a third French window, as well as a glass bricked wall which veils the full-length tub in the bathroom next door.
Being slap-bang in the centre of the University of London, and with an art-house cinema in the Brunswick Centre, O'Donnell Court is a fully paid-up member of the culture club. Bloomsbury is the perfect place to lose a couple of hours, strolling through its Georgian squares and Victorian terraces, or enjoying an afternoon at the British Museum. The award-winning restaurants of Charlotte Street are a ten minute walk away, and Oxford Street just five minutes further on from that. Or for the lights of the West End, hop on a tube at Russell Square and make Covent Garden in five minutes.
