An incredible Grade II-listed townhouse set in the prestigious Mecklenburgh Square Garden is on the market for £3.75 million.
Mecklenburgh Square is a sought-after location, famed for its distinguished list of notable historic residents, many of whom comprised the ‘Bloomsbury Set’, an associated group of intellectuals, academics and artists during the first half of the 20th Century.
Eileen Power, the medievalist scholar, lived at this very address on the Square from 1922 to 1940, holding regular ‘kitchen dances’ attended by another eminent resident, writer Virginia Woolf.
