TO BUY TO LET
Those lucky enough to rent a luxury apartment in Covent Garden live in a thriving and densely populated residential district.
Covent Garden is also an upmarket shopping and dining destination that exudes a charisma that very few urban villages can replicate. It manages to simultaneously be arty, stylish and friendly. The streets are abuzz with entertainment and performers, making it one of the most vibrant places to live in London. The area WC2B/WC2E is located between St Martin’s Lane and Drury Lane and offers some of the best boutique shopping in London at famous addresses like Long Acre and Seven Dials.
The current square was once a vegetable field that supplied produce to the village’s monks. The “convent garden” was abolished in 1540 when Henry VIII confiscated the land of the monasteries and gave the garden to Baron Russell, the first Earl of Bedford. In the seventeenth century the 4th Earl of Bedford commissioned the talented architect Inigo Jones to develop the area into an Italian style luxury neighbourhood. Covent Garden’s fortunes rose and fell over the years and in 1830 a central market building was constructed in the centre of the square. It later became a flower market with glass roofs over the aisles.
The restoration of the district’s historic buildings has reinvigorated the area and Covent Garden luxury property for rent is now in high demand.
