The flat currently for sale centres around one large reception space that is light and bright

 

As eccentrically shaped as the 19th century building in which it sits, the top floor flat on offer was originally an artist’s studio and now features a double height reception space with a kitchen and bathroom to the rear and a bedroom on a mezzanine level. It totals just 603 square foot in size but is described as having “commanding views over the square and towards the Victoria & Albert Museum”.

 

Flat 7, 5 Thurloe Square is offered on a leasehold basis with 969 years remaining and a share of the freehold and W. A. Ellis are the selling agents.
