Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Offered for sale with many of its original features intact, this highly sought-after Type F2A studio apartment is peacefully located on the third floor of the Barbican’s Breton House.

The large east-facing apartment is naturally subdivided into a versatile living space, with an original Brook Marine kitchen, dining, seating and bedroom area. The triple-width floor-to-ceiling windows create a spectacular sense of light and space and incorporate a sliding door that opens onto a long balcony positioned to catch the morning sun.

The bathroom is accessed via a short hall containing a useful storage cupboard. There are also large built-in cupboards in the main room, which are currently used as wardrobes.
There is residents’ parking in the underground car park, where there is a concierge.

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. Breton House is a terrace block on the northern boundary of the estate. Flats either face east (and overlook Whitecross Street) or west (and overlook the beautiful Cripplegate Free Library building and Golden Lane).

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, around a four-minute walk, and One New Change is just a short walk away, with cafés, restaurants and flagship fashion stores.
