Overlooking the River Thames, Clarendon’s corporate serviced apartments in the City’s Sir John Lyon House offer stunning views of Shakespeare’s Globe and the Tate Modern, both of which can be seen on the opposite bank from the residents’ terrace and gardens. Just a three minute walk from Mansion House tube station, all areas of the Square Mile are within easy reach and London City Airport is just half an hour away.
About the property
Offering a range of 1 bedroom apartments, Sir John Lyon House is a large modern development overlooking the northern bank of the River Thames. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted by an onsite concierge and fully serviced lift – adding an extra sense of security and convenience to the building – and an attractively planted public decked terrace and garden which can be accessed from the first floor.
Each 1 bedroom apartment is generously proportioned, benefiting from plenty of natural light and wood flooring throughout. Separate entrance halls open into spacious open plan living and dining areas and the minimalist, modern kitchens can be found in alcoves to the side. With comfortable corner sofas, flat screen televisions and dining tables, these spaces are excellent for both relaxing and entertaining.
Every kitchen is fully equipped with high quality appliances including dishwashers and washer/dryers and several include attractive glass cabinets for storing crockery. With high gloss cupboards, granite worktops and plenty of surfaces, creating home cooked meals is both practical and enjoyable.
The sense of practicality continues in the spacious double bedrooms, which feature black out blinds and double glazing, offering a serene and quiet environment for a good night’s sleep. Large integrated storage cupboards allow plenty of space for personal belongings and the soft furnishings and bedside lamps add a touch of domestic comfort. All bathrooms are family style and separate from the bedrooms, comprising showers over baths, shaving points and heated towel rails.
As with every Clarendon property, a number of extra touches have been included to make each stay as comfortable as possible. A welcome pack filled with daily essentials such as coffee and tea, cereals and pasta await in the kitchens, whilst the apartments have free and immediate access to high speed Wifi. Hairdryers and irons are on hand and a welcome tablet contains all the information needed about the local area.
The local area
Home to St Paul’s Cathedral, the Museum of London and the Barbican Centre, the City of London has plenty of tourist attractions to keep visitors occupied. Those looking for a more local experience will enjoy discovering the various public gardens dotted around and a number of fine dining restaurants and sleek bars in the area boasting rooftop views of the city sprawling below. As the oldest part of London (it’s the area that the Romans originally settled in) and the capital’s central financial hub, there’s a sense of propriety that permeates the atmosphere of the place. Clarendon’s long stay serviced apartments in the City are also perfectly situated between east and west London, making them a superb choice for individuals and couples looking to take in the capital’s sights.
