Buying property in Bloomsbury
Bloomsbury has ancient roots, and the area was first mentioned in the Domesday Book, thanks to its vineyards. The name derives from its original title of ‘the manor of Blemond’; after William de Blemond, the Norman landowner who possessed the land in the 1200s. Bloomsbury retains an atmosphere of cultural importance, though these days, the vineyards have given way to wine bars and traditional pubs.
Many of the properties in Bloomsbury are Victorian or Edwardian townhouses and are often laid out over several storeys. Mews-style houses are also popular. Though these buildings have period facades, they’ve frequently been redesigned inside, offering contemporary, airy interiors. There are also some modern developments, and a few of the historic buildings have been converted into apartments.
Bloomsbury has a wonderful central location, which is a major draw for those working in Central London. However, there’s much more to the area than closeness to the centre of the capital. There’s a laid-back sense of intellectualism here, which is due to the academic institutions that are situated on its streets. Students, young professionals, and retired couples all choose to live here; largely to make the most of its leafy squares and peaceful streets.
