In the centre of Soho, Meard Street is exciting on the outside and elegant within. The front door opens into an open-plan sitting room and kitchen, where a trio of sash windows overlook the cobbled street below. Bright panelled walls are decorated with ornate sconces, and to the right of a wide marble-surround fireplace is a polished, vintage writing desk. The central space is more contemporary, with a caramel leather sofa tucked alongside a circular dining table for four.
You can’t miss the double doors into the bedroom – they’re to the left of the fireplace, crowned by a purple pelmet. Inside is a tall antique wardrobe, and through another door is the ensuite, with marbled floors, dark panelled walls and a period, claw-foot bathtub. There’s more drama outside. Soho has restaurants and pubs, and the home is close to Oxford Street and Covent Garden’s shops.
