The history....

Built over a century ago to house a leading London bullion trader, our stately townhouse has over the years remained a discreet pillar in the City. Originally commissioned and constructed in 1911 by a leading London bullion dealer. The townhouse at 23 – 25 Paul Street is imbued with local colour and history. A tall, elegant edifice enjoying a discreet position between Old Street and Moorgate, it was originally designed to house bullion brokers C. Sharp & Wilkins, as they were borne in a takeover of one of London’s leading gold smelters next door. This led to them immediately becoming one of the four most powerful organisations in the global bullion trade, the London Price Fixers. Once a week, the four Price Fixers met to set the price of gold in London - and by extension, the world - until one of them, the Rothschilds, took over the price fixing in 1924. C. Sharp & Wilkins remained integral to the bullion trade until well after the Second World War, and is notable for surviving the Blitz of 1940, when much of the rest of the street was destroyed. The history, the quirk - and the mysterious bricked-up Victorian doorway in the basement - all lend to the unique atmosphere and sense of intrigue as you ascend to seemingly hidden heights. Humorously decadent with an air of witty naughtiness.
Through a discreet doorway, on a quiet street, one enters a setting better experienced than described.
