Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Positioned on the top floor of the unique Frobisher Crescent, this immaculate one-bedroom flat with barrel-vaulted ceiling is located in a peaceful central location in the Barbican Estate with views over the communal areas.

Split over two levels, the flat has a double-height, open-plan living space with large original windows that open onto a south-facing balcony. Upstairs, the bedroom, with its en-suite bathroom, looks over the main living space. Light to this upper level comes from a large clerestory window that echoes the shape of the barrel-vaulted ceiling.

Having been completely refurbished in 2008, the flat has a solid wood floor throughout and a fully integrated, fitted kitchen. Underground parking and storage can be rented directly from the Corporation of London.

Frobisher Crescent is a dramatic semi-circular building situated in the centre of the iconic Barbican Estate, adjacent to the arts centre. Prior to its completion in 1982, the plan was for commercial use of the lower levels with residential units above. However, the apartment levels were leased to the City of London Business School and remained uninhabited until 2008, when United House Developments transformed Frobisher Crescent back to its original purpose with the creation of 69 refurbished homes: a mix of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments on the seventh, eighth and ninth floors. The interior design by TP Bennett was sympathetic to the original Barbican design ethos.

The Barbican Estate is the finest achievement of the architects Chamberlin, Powell & Bon. It was Grade II-listed in 2001 in recognition of its extraordinary contribution to London’s urban landscape. All residents have access to communal gardens throughout the development.

The Underground stations of Barbican (Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) and Moorgate (Northern, Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) are both within easy reach. Moorgate also offers National Rail services. The flat is well positioned for access to the Barbican Arts Centre, Smithfield Market, and the bars and restaurants of Clerkenwell. There is a Waitrose supermarket on Whitecross Street, and One New Change is just a short walk away, with cafés, restaurants and flagship fashion stores.
