Hi, We are an Australian couple living in London now for the last 10 years. This is our much loved Clerkenwell apartment where we spent some of our most memorable times on London. We now live a little bit further out of the city in a suburb called Dulwich, having to move (begrudgingly) to a house once our kids arrived. We still love the neighbourhood, going back regularly to the wonderful bars and restaurants in the area.
Chris purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Chris chose London Borough of Islington
We loved living in the flat which is on the top floor of an old Georgian house in a street and an area with lots of history. . The neighbourhood has become a known area now for designers of all types. Clerkenwell design week becoming an industry must for many companies. With that the area is full of fashionable restaurants and bars which attract a very cool crowd. Exmouth Market is just 5 minutes work away, somewhere where Im sure you will be eating at a least a couple of times during your stay. The flat itself is on the top two floors, tucked away in very quiet street but one street each way and you are back in the hustle and bustle. Being on the top floor it feels very quiet. we fully renovated the flat about 5 years ago to a very high standard and have maintained this over the years. Difficult to find a period apartment with such a large open plan living similar to this.

Home away from home
This property was spacious and perfect for us and our adult daughter. It had everything we needed to cook in on a number of nights. It was also well located to travel to restaurants, theatres and sites. Chris was a thoughtful host with adaptors for electrical devices from Canada available, and milk in the fridge. We loved the gas fire. We highly recommend this first class spot!
A spacious, comfortably furnished, clean, well equipped, bright apartment on a quiet street.
Chris responds instantly and helpfully to queries about the apartment. He even dropped in on Christmas Eve to help with the electronics. The apartment is equipped better than most rentals, with paper products, soaps, etc. We have stayed in 3 different rentals in The City, and this was by far the finest, in terms of quality and helpfulness of the host.
Gorgeous upmarket flat- great location!
My sister and I had a great stay in Chris’s flat in Clerkenwell, which was very close to lots of excellent shops and restaurants. The flat is fitted out to a very high specification: we particularly enjoyed the gas fire place, wine fridge and AppleTV! Chris was also a fantastic host: very communicative and obliging. Will definitely use again for future London trips!
Perfect Spot and Perfect Stay!
Chris was an absolutely spectacular host and communicator. Flat is even nicer than the photos. Great spot with easy access to everywhere in London. Could not have been better accommodations for us!
Excellent stay in Clerkenwell!
This is a great apartment in a quiet, safe neighborhood with easy access to the tube. Several restaurants within walking distance. We loved the gas fireplace! Would definitely recommend staying here!
Clerkenwell is Londoners' London - a creative community, slap bang in Londons heart. This stylish apartment is nestled amongst the medieval city gates, Michelin starred restaurants, historic pubs and epicurean cafes. The neighbourhood where East London meets West London so pick a direction and you'll soon come across Old Street or Exmouth Market, The Barbican or St Pauls, The British Museum or the West Ends hottest theatres.
