Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Situated on the top floor of Crescent House, this is a very rare example of a barrel-vaulted flat on the sought-after Golden Lane Estate with most of its original features intact. The apartment is favourably situated at the rear of the building, away from the road overlooking quiet communal areas. It is presented to the market in excellent condition, having been exactingly restored by the current owner.

The reception room has large windows that provide huge amounts of natural light and views over the concourse to Great Arthur House and the Barbican. The kitchen retains its original layout with sympathetically designed modern units and worktop. There is a sleeping area that can be separated off with the assistance of original sliding screens, and a bathroom with some original fittings. The original concrete floor has been exposed and painted.

The Golden Lane Estate was built in the 1950s to a design by the newly-formed practice Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, who later designed the Barbican Estate. The development is popular with young professionals and those in the creative industries.

All residents on the estate enjoy the use of a swimming pool, as well as tennis and badminton courts, at preferential rates. There is a Waitrose supermarket close by, and the Barbican Arts Centre is also within walking distance. This area has a particularly good selection of restaurants, pubs and bars, and Smithfield Market is nearby. There are two Underground stations within very close proximity: Barbican (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines) and Old Street (Northern Line). Farringdon Underground (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines) and British Rail station is also within walking distance.
