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.

The bright, light living room boasts wide-board pine flooring, intricate cornicing and a log burner with a handsome copper surround. French windows open to a Juliette balcony offering views over the courtyard garden.
And a stylish study sits through Crittall doors, boasting slate herringbone-patterned flooring and access to the lower ground and upper levels.
Upstairs, the chic interiors continue, with an enormous, sumptuous space serving as a bathroom and dressing room, boasting a beautiful freestanding copper bath.
The bedrooms are light-filled and elegant, with exotic big cat cushions injecting a funky element.
The lower ground floor boasts a snug and cinema room with access to the courtyard garden. The bold, beautiful kitchen and dining room is also found here, boasting statement wallpaper and a La Cornue range cooker.
There's two further bedrooms showcasing feature windows and colour-pop soft furnishings.
As well as the courtyard garden, there's also a two-acre communal garden which is home to a tennis court for residents of the square. The stunning home is also just a short walk from all that Kings Cross, Clerkenwell and Lambs Conduit Street have to offer.
