Secret retreats: 33 Blackfriars offers rare chance for City living

Nowadays the City is as much a place to live as it is to work. 33 Blackfriars offers luxurious living in the heart of London's financial district.
Tucked away moments from the Thames, the former Dominican priory of the Blackfriars is now a mainly commercial quarter, its historic narrow lanes leading to  St Paul’s Cathedral.

Here, too, is splendid, 17th-century Apothecaries’ Hall — the oldest livery company building in the City — and beside it is 33 Blackfriars, a rare residential development of 15 flats.

Now that the City is a place to live as well as work, these homes in the Square Mile are where owners can put down roots. Apartments at the scheme have a minimum of two bedrooms and several come with outside space. A generous-size penthouse-type flat with a crescent of windows even offers a glimpse of the river. 

Interiors are functional rather than luxurious, which reflects in the prices, from £835,000. Call Hurford Salvi Carr on 020 7250 4950.
