Always a gasp at just how much these places go for in some quarters, but there’s no denying that the finish of this Type M3A triplex apartment in Bunyan Court on the Chamberlin, Powell and Bon-designed Barbican Estate, London EC2 is pretty stylish.
You’ll find it in the grade II-listed Barbican, which was completed in 1972. Bunyan Court is a terrace block in the north podium area of the Barbican, looking out over Beech Gardens.
As for the apartment itself, that’s pretty special too. It is accessed from the sixth floor and once inside, you will find the original mahogany staircase leading to all floors. That’s definitely a selling point.
Those floors offer a south facing reception room with full height and width glass sliding door which leads to a terrace, along with a ‘sympathetically modernised’ kitchen and dining area with another full height and width glass sliding door for access to outside space. A lower floor is where you’ll find the first bedroom and bathroom.
On the seventh floor you’ll find a further bedroom, specifically a barrel vaulted double height ceiling bedroom with full width and height windows and private terrace.
There is underfloor heating throughout and when you decide to go out, the Barbican complex is on your doorstep, not to mention the residents’ gardens for sunnier days.
As we hinted above, this doesn’t come cheap, with an asking price of £1,195,000.
