Soho continues to surprise, revealing hidden beauty locked away behind old street frontage. One such revelation is the splendid listed Art Deco public baths, with its pool of white-and-green Sicilian marble and fountain of glimmering bronze. It’s behind Carnaby Street, at a location described as “at the convergence of Mayfair with Soho”.

Landmark of the future

About £400,000 is the entry price for property in Soho, and rentals start at about £375 a week for a studio. However, for a touch of luxury, distinctive Central St Giles, on the border with Covent Garden, is a new landmark. The scheme includes 56 flats and has transformed a dead zone around the Centre Point skyscraper, where a Continental-type piazza will form part of a new Crossrail station entrance.

Several flats, including a 2,500sq ft penthouse with wraparound terrace, start from £1.8 million, up to £5 million. Call EA Shaw on 020 7240 2255.
