A lovely front-facing flat in the mansion block made famous as Whitehaven Mansions, home of Hercule Poirot, has come onto the market in London

Located on the fourth floor of an elegant Art Deco building in Charterhouse Square– the fictional residence of Hercule Poirot – this one bedroom front-facing flat would make an admirable London pied-a-terre.

Accommodation offers 40sq m of interior space which comprises a double bedroom, generous reception room with striking art deco curved wall and window, plus separate kitchen and bathroom.

Florin Court is possibly one of the most well known Art Deco mansion blocks in Central London.  The building became known as Whitehaven Mansions during David Suchet’s much-loved turn as the quirky Belgian detective Poirot.

Residents benefit from a concierge, roof terrace with wonderful views of the city, plus a swimming pool, gym, sauna and spa.

Charterhouse Square dates in part back to 1371. Both Farringdon and Barbican Stations are easy to reach, and the opening of Crossrail in 2018 will mean fast links to four of London’s airports.

The flat is priced at £699,950. Telephone Hurford Salvi Carr on 020 8022 7191 or visit http://countrylife.onthemarket.com.
