Fitzrovia’s house of ill repute……..
London is full of hidden gems. Recently Fresson and Tee completed the full refurbishment of one such gem at 23 Rathbone Street; nestled in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia.
Originally constructed as a town house, the 17th century delight has had a varied and sometimes even salacious past, most notably when it was used as a house of ill repute.
As part of the recent refurbishment, we alluded to this by the restoration of an original painting of a lady of the night, which is now seen high up on the third floor of the iconic façade.
Having successfully repaired a number of serious building defects, Fresson and Tee refurbished the property to provide a stylish 2 bedroom flat over the upper floors of the world famous Newman Arms, which has featured in several literary masterpieces.
