It was built as a local authority development, but these days, this two-bedroom flat in the Berthold Lubetkin-designed Spa Green Estate in Clerkenwell, London EC1 is part of a grade II-listed development.
Dating back to 1949 and originally seen as part of a new generation of social housing, the current block was extensively refurbished in 2008, which restored both the features and the original colour scheme in line with the architect’s original vision.
That social housing vision is still present in part, with the majority (about two thirds) of the tenants still renting via the local authority. This is obviously one of the third in private hands.
The flat is located on the first floor of Wells House (with lift access), offering two double bedrooms, a bathroom, a reception room with access to the balcony, a kitchen and a separate dining room. The dining room was originally a third bedroom, which could be reinstated if you need more bedroom space. The flat also has original parquet flooring, and parts of the kitchen are also original.
The heating and hot water are run off a communal system and included in the service charge. That charge is £1,564.62 per annum, with an overall asking price of £485,000. Plenty more images on the listing.
