Modern flats for Holborn's high-earning career professionals

Flats in Temple are no longer just for barristers and lawyers living in chambers. The wider Holborn legal district is getting a boost with new homes from £685,000.

Inner and Middle Temple, near the Royal Courts of Justice, form London’s oldest live-work estate. For centuries, barristers and lawyers have lived over the shop in chambers. Now, with the arrival of global law and accountancy firms, the wider Holborn legal district is changing and modern apartments are being built for the area’s high-earning career professionals.

Chancery Quarter, pictured, is the latest boutique development, with nine open-plan flats that have full-height windows and contemporary interiors. From £685,000 to £1.45 million. Call Hurford Salvi Carr on 020 7250 4950. 

The Lincolns in Gray’s Inn Road is a scheme of 16 new flats above traditional shop fronts that slots seamlessly into the Georgian streetscape. It is a “green” building with solar panels and a biodiversity roof and backs on to the gardens of one of the four Inns of Court. Prices from £855,000. Call estate agent Robert Irving Burns on 020 7637 0821.
