But it’s certainly appealing to the eye and definitely appeals to our love of 20th century modernism. You’ll find this particular apartment in Defoe House, a low-rise block that was completed back in 1973 and like the rest of the estate, is grade II-listed.

The apartment covers around 698 sq. ft. of space, all of which has recently been refurbished. Judging by the images, to a very high standard too. The space is laid out with a large reception room, an open-plan kitchen that has retained most of its original Brooke Marine units, a bedroom described as ‘unusually large’ and with original built-in wardrobes, along with a white-tiled bathroom and separate WC. You also get access to the communal gardens throughout the estate.
