It’s a strange place, with the modernist design actually home to three properties, all surrounded by communal gardens. The one for sale is the largest one, in the centre.

We love the fact that it has hardly changed for 40 years. That’s partly down to the building’s design – we’re not sure that a semi-circular sitting room would ever get off the ground these days. But you have one here. Also, check out that period kitchen, the dining suite, lighting and fireplace – all of which seem to be included in the sale. There’s even a dumb waiter, heated plate warmer and serving dishes plus built-in sideboards. Yes, it really is lost in time.
