1 bedroom duplex for sale

Brandon Mews, Barbican, London, EC2


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Occupying a unique position within the Barbican estate, this one-bedroom split-level duplex apartment forms part of the iconic Brandon Mews terrace. Recognisable by its U-shaped window, the apartment has remarkable views across the water towards the Barbican Centre.

Private steps from podium level lead down to the apartment's front door. Accommodation is inverted, with the bedroom and bathroom at entrance level and living space on the floor below. On the lower floor, the kitchen is neatly tucked at the back allowing the two-tier reception space a full view across the water. The bottom of the u-shaped window dips almost as low as the water level itself.

A hatch in the sitting area leads to a full-height store room below, a space which can easily be converted into a second bedroom, or in this case, a study. A door at the back of the room leads to a secure and private garage, which can be purchased or rented from the City of London.

Given the grade II-listed status of the apartment, many of the original details remain. The open-tread wooden staircase sits beneath a high skylight and striking curved ceiling, a design which is mirrored in the bathroom. The kitchen and bathroom still maintain the original fittings that are so recognisable throughout the estate.

Residents of the mews are able to rent parking spaces in the car park behind the terrace directly from the City of London.

Brandon Mews, completed in 1969, is positioned between Speed House and Andrewes House. It forms the east side of Speed Gardens and continues behind the ornamental waterfall at the southern end of the lake.

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.
