  • One Bedroom
  • Type 23
  • Top Floor Barrel Vaulted

Full description

Possibly one of the most sought style of Barbican apartments, this top floor barrel vaulted flat known as a Type 23 has the most pleasing aspect with direct views towards St Pauls Cathedral and Thomas More Residents Gardens.

Meticulously and sympathetically refurbished it forms part of the Barbican Estate which was designed by the renowned Architects practice Chamberlain, Powell and Bon. It is in our opinion one of the very best examples of Brutalist Architecture that can be found in London, with a distinct and strong influence of Le Corbusier design.

Grade II listed, the Barbican is an enclave in the heart of the City of London incorporating the Barbican Centre which is the largest performing Art Centre in Europe, hosting music concerts art exhibitions, and film screenings as well as being part of the Global Cultural Districts Network.
The accommodation comprises a breath-taking barrel vaulted reception room with a Southerly aspect and direct access to an external space, recessed kitchen, shower room and bedroom which has a comprehensive built in wardrobe and like the reception room has a barrel vaulted ceiling.
It is conveniently located to Barbican Underground (Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan and Circle Lines) and will benefit from the opening of Crossrail (predicted 2018).
