Mentioned in Shakespeare’s sonnets and popping up in works by Charles Dickens, William Thackeray and William Morris, Clerkenwell has always been a hive of creativity. Today this is manifested in Clerkenwell’s thriving design sector, luring a trendy young crowd of professionals who thrive in this dynamic environment. At the weekend, residents make the most of the area’s bustling markets, restaurants and bars, while enjoying a quick commute to the heart of the City of London during the week. Catering to this demographic, property in Clerkenwell is mostly made up of modern, high end flats and apartments, many of which boast stunning views over London’s skyline. Despite this central location, proximity to Farringdon station means a quick weekend getaway is always an option.

Architecture and property
Once a residential location for influential Londoners including Oliver Cromwell, the industrial revolution brought breweries, printing, watchmaking and other craft workshops to Clerkenwell. This heritage lives on, and these days the area is a design destination and has more creative businesses and architect firms per square mile than anywhere else in the world. Consequently it's become a bit of a mecca for young and trend conscious professionals to live.
There's been a livestock market in Smithfield for some 800 years, making this one of the oldest parts of London. Consequently there's a variety of property here, from 17th century properties around the market to listed inter and post war estates, like the Barbican. The vast majority of properties are flats or apartments, many of which are located in impressive contemporary developments. The Eagle, Chronicle Tower and 250 City Road are some of the best, while beautiful terraced Georgian and Victorian townhouses can be found on City Road and Chequer Street. There are also some 1960s estates – like Spa Green and Golden Lane, which are listed – and Victorian warehouse conversions. The picturesque flats in Brewery Square and Granville Square are highly sought after, as are the new mews houses on gated River Street.
