Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This excellently proportioned apartment, with private balcony, is situated on the fourth floor of Pullman Court, a seminal Grade II-listed development in Streatham Hill. Designed in 1933 by the architect Frederick Gibberd, it is among the finest examples of Modern Movement housing in the United Kingdom.

Pullman Court was originally designed to resemble an ocean liner, composed of a number of blocks of varying heights along an east-west axis. The north and south blocks are long narrow buildings of five floors, enclosing a central courtyard and manicured gardens.

The apartment retains many of the defining features that have earned Pullman Court its reputation with enthusiasts of Modernist architecture, including original Crittall windows, walnut sliding partitions and a private balcony with views over communal gardens. Pullman court also offers free parking to residents, provides fibre optic broadband and has a staffed full-service laundry facility.

The grounds of Pullman Court are arranged around several mature tress which pre-date the development itself. The apartments were originally designed to appeal to young professionals (each flat came with a wireless, a gas fire and an ice box built in) who wanted a “country retreat” out of the smog. There is an active residents’ committee at Pullman Court; many of the people who live there are genuinely passionate about the building, and this helps form a focus for the community, with summer barbeques and Christmas parties held in the landscaped grounds.

Pullman Court is located approximately 600 metres from Streatham Hill railway station, where regular trains run to Victoria with a journey time of around 17 minutes. The nearest Tube station is Brixton (Victoria Line) which is easily reached by a number of buses. Streatham Hill is served by particularly good bus links and is well placed for road access to the South. The open spaces of Brockwell Park are within close proximity.
