Russell the Great

8 guests · 3 bedrooms · 4 baths
Steep yourself in the cosmopolitan artistry of Bloomsbury at this 3-floor penthouse near Russell Square. A visionary architectural achievement, the home features 3 king suites and diverse living areas on all levels—including 2 terraces with alfresco dining—set amid a veritable museum of original artwork. The prime location is an easy walk from the British Museum, Oxford Circus, and myriad nightspots.
On the main level, the gourmet kitchen with wet bar serves an interior dining table for 6 and ample lounge. Evocative features including a transparent ceiling, floating glass staircase, modernist dining stools, and natural wood floors create an ambiance of airy luminosity. A wide threshold opens to the lower terrace, featuring an outdoor dining table perched beside an impressive wall painting.
Upstairs, skylight windows illuminate another lounge area and office space. A few steps lead up to the upper terrace, with yet another dining table and views of the Bloomsbury rooftops.
The master suite includes a king bed, private patio, and deluxe ensuite bathroom with jetted hot tub and shower. The two guestrooms also have king beds and ensuite bathrooms, one of which includes an antique stand-alone tub. Each bedroom has its own character and unique collection of artwork. Throughout the penthouse, heating and air conditioning ensure comfort at all times.
Bloomsbury and the surrounding neighborhoods offer an extraordinary combination of literary history and culture, world-class museums and galleries, independent shops, and excellent historic pubs. Enjoy mornings in Bedford or Russell Squares, stroll down Lamb's Conduit Street, and take in the masterpieces at the British Museum or National Gallery.
