Dating back to 1900 and grade two listed, number 33 Bury Street is easily recognisable for its original red terracotta exterior and beautifully proportioned leaded bay windows. An air of relaxed grandeur exudes ever y detail, from the lattice brick design on the chimneys to the shields in the windows. Internally, you will notice the same.

From the top of the range lighting systems to the sleek marble bathrooms, each layer of contemporary luxury has been carefully selected to sit in parallel to the historical features, such as the original ironmongery and cornicing.
From the fabric used on the chairs to the detailing of the joinery, inspiration for the interior has been drawn from the locations rich cultural heritage and the buildings architectural features. Morpheus London believes the magic for successful luxury residential design lies in the details. The handles on the master bedroom wardrobes have been crafted from bronze in the form of the shield seen in the windows. The reception armchairs are upholstered in structural pin stripe wool and the contemporary detailing on the master bedroom headboard has drawn inspiration from brogued shoes. Even the fabric palette of cool greys and rich blues with elements of burgundy resembles elements found in one of the local clothiers. These details subtly run throughout the whole interior of number 33 Bury Street for a cohesively styled contemporary setting.
