Temple is a premium two-bedroom apartment, footsteps away from the bustling Fleet Street, yet only seconds to the tranquility of the River Thames. It really is one of our favorite properties with its high ceilings, elegant curtains and spacious living room. A small art gallery could have made its home here. Edwardian architecture styles the exterior of the building with arches, columns and wrought iron gates.
The living room has two art deco sofas with large throw pillows to accommodate five or six comfortably. There is a large screen HDTV with freeview and Roku. The dining area has a glass table with off-white leather chairs to seat six. There is art through the flat.
The kitchen has spacious countertops to prepare the perfect family style meal. The appliances are all made of stainless steel. The electric hob is complete with extraction fan. There is a microwave and convection oven under the counters. It has a full-sized refrigerator built into the cabinets. There is a small table for two.
The two bedrooms both have platform beds with ample surrounding space. The master bedroom has large full-length windows with luxury curtains, while the second bedroom has smaller window still offering lots of light and fresh air. The master bathroom has a full-sized tub and shower, with heated towel rack and rounded porcelain sink. The other bathroom is just as large with standing shower stall with glass sliding door.
Temple is located in the city of London, technically a city within a city. Its roots trace back to the Roman era as seen at London Wall. The city of London has a separate governance than the rest of the city. The boundaries of the city bear black bollards with the City’s emblem and by dragon boundary marks at major entrances including Holborn.
The Temple Gardens, right off Temple Avenue are an excellent stroll or an afternoon picnic. Natural Kitchen, Hilliard, Jamies wine bar, The Harrow, Hack & Hop, The Tipperary, and The Old Bell Tavern are blocks away. Many other restaurants, shops and pubs can be found slightly further off on Fleet street.
Temple tube station, three blocks away, makes connections to the Circle and District Lines. Blackfriars station, five blocks away, makes the same connections, as well as to Thameslink and Southeastern trains.
