Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Set on the fifth floor of Defoe House this Type 21 retains many of the original features and offers 833sq feet of lateral space. Positioned within the middle of the block with a southern aspect from the floor to ceiling windows, the reception room overlooks the manicured Thomas More Residents Garden.

The apartment benefits from a day time concierge and underground parking/additional storage can be rented from the Corporation of London. This is an ideal home, pied-a-terre or rental investment for any discerning City buyer.

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. Residents have access to glorious communal gardens throughout the estate.

Situation

Defoe House is on the western edge of the Barbican Estate, close to the Estate Office and the junction of Beech Street and Aldersgate Street on the edge of the Square Mile. Both Barbican (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City) and Moorgate (as Barbican plus Northern Line) tube stations are in easy reach, as is the Barbican Centre, famous for the many concerts, theatre, art and other attractions it holds.

It is perfectly located for professionals or families wishing to have all the facilities of the area and the City and the West End within walking distance and is well positioned to benefit from the additional rail-links offered by Cross-rail with Farringdon station close by.
