This property is certainly unique and one of our favourites. While in the heart of London's Square Mile, would you believe you'll have views of a lake, a Roman wall and a 14th century church (built in 1394).
On the ground floor there is a spacious bedroom with a double bed, a large mirror-fronted wardrobe, a dressing table and sofa. This bedroom has warm-coloured furnishings, plenty of storage space and looks out onto the Roman Wall.
On the first floor you’ll find an office with a desk and chair, a TV and a balcony. It also has a sofabed which folds into a double bed. This room has its own terrace and you can look out onto the Roman Wall, the church and one of the Barbican lakes. There is a family bathroom which has a shower over the bath and a separate WC.
On the next level is bedroom with a single bunk bed and a desk underneath, and a single child's bed.
Head up a few more stairs and on the third floor is one of the two spacious and bright living spaces. The lounge offers lovely views of some of the stunning architecture nearby and has three comfy sofas for relaxing on after a busy day exploring. There is a glass coffee table, a TV, DVD player, video recorder, lots of dvds, videos and books, some interesting artwork and even a piano.
At the front of the house and up on a raised split level, you’ll find the contemporary kitchen and dining space. There are wooden fitted cupboards and all the amenities you will need, including a huge fridge/freezer and a TV. The dining area has a wooden dining table and chairs, and a sideboard. The washing machine and dryer are in a separate utility area in the garage.
For the master bedroom, head up to the fourth floor. On the landing before you reach it there is another exit onto the Barbican Highwalk and a separate loo/cloakroom. The master bedroom is stylish and decorated with muted purples and creams. There's a king-sized bed, chests of drawers, 2 bedside tables and a large wardrobe. There’s also a TV and DVD player, and the en suite bathroom is very modern, with his and hers sinks, a WC, a dressing area with a vanity mirror and a glass shower unit.
If you carry on to the top floor, you'll reach the fantastic sun room, a second spacious and bright reception room. There’s a sofa and two armchairs, a TV, DVD and CD player, a glass table with chairs and French windows which open out onto the pretty roof terraces, on either side. Outside there are lots of potted plants and sun loungers. On the South-West terrace, look out to the City skyscrapers and down to Monkwell Square. To the North-East, you have the lovely views of the lakes, Roman wall and the old stone church.
