Description

A truly exceptional, five bedroom property set within The Barbican Estate. Formerly the estate office for the development, this extraordinary apartment was designed by Tracey Wiles, partner of Make Architects and Ken Mackay, founder of Mackay and Partners.

Set back from Aldersgate Street and with its own private, gated entrance, a set of stairs lead down to a secluded courtyard garden. A six metre, Corten steel, water feature has been incorporated into the staircase, and the entrance to the property has been constructed using the same material. Self rusting and continually changing in colour and texture, it beautifully complements the colour of the Barbican brickwork and the rawness of the bush hammered concrete.

Double doors open onto the dramatic, main living space which boasts double height ceilings and is framed by huge concrete columns. Storage areas either side of the entry form a library and wine cellar and there is a separate, leather padded den area with a bespoke TV unit.

Two corridors connect the main living space to the heart of the building and at the rear of the property, sits a Dada kitchen with Gaggenau and Bosch appliances. In contrast to the living space, the kitchen is long and low, with concrete columns and slot windows at either end. A charcoal grey lacquer wall forms a backdrop to the kitchen bench and integrated dining area, with a utility room tucked away behind it.

Four bedrooms, one en-suite and large bathroom, complete the ground floor level and an 80sqm master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, walk in wardrobe and study area occupies the entire top floor.

Equipped with audiovisual equipment by Ideaworks,the property also has Lutron lighting, Cat 6 cabling, Crestron control and surround-sound speakers to the main rooms.

Square Footage: 3,255 sq ft
