Views over Ching Court.
It may not be in the country, but £3.5 million buys you this very big house in trendy Covent Garden - owned by Blur bassist Alex James in the early 2000's.
A stylish late 19th century converted warehouse formerly owned by Blur guitarist turned cheesemaker Alex James has emerged on the market for £3.5million.
The musician lived at Mercer Street, in the Seven Dials area of Covent Garden, for several years in the early 2000s before relocating to the country.
The handsome townhouse is a stone's throw from Neal's Yard Dairy, a cheese shop where James no doubt indulged his passion for the produce, as well as former haunts The Ivy and Groucho Club.
The two bedroom property with a balcony overlooking Ching Court is available to buy through estate agent Tavistock Bow, who are also offering it to rent for £1,650 per week.
The five storey house was remodelled by acclaimed architect Sir Terry Farrell between 1983 and 1985 as part of the regeneration of the area, subsequently earning Grade II Listed status for its 'architectural merit'.
