Hot Property: Beauchamp Estates, W1F

For Sale: Meard Street, W1F.

If you love historical London, this early Georgian townhouse will appeal. Built in 1732, the Grade II* listed property offers bucket loads of character, with an abundance of original period features still in place. That said, the four-bed house has undergone some sympathetic modernisation, too: think a functional and stylish stainless-steel kitchen. The house also boasts a grand principal bedroom at the very top, complete with a spacious en suite; a secluded south-east facing roof terrace; and a mature private rear garden – an oasis of calm in the lively bustle of W1.
