Nothing too far out of the ordinary with this one. Specifically this is a two-bedroom second-floor apartment, one part of a development that is both well preserved and grade II-listed.

Ahead of its time too. The apartment here has the light and space buyers are desperate for in the modern era, with the bonus of some midcentury modernism thrown in for good measure. Just love the exterior and communal areas of this place.

Once inside you will find a apartment that looks well maintained and not overly modernised. Sadly it doesn’t have the original kitchen units (always a plus), but what you have here are some wonderful modern and clean modern finishes, matched up with what we presume to be the original parquet flooring.

As for space, there are two bedrooms, a bathroom, living / dining room and kitchen. There is also a store room allocated to the apartment for any excess you don’t want on display. According to the agent, the building also has a unique ‘H-block’ shape, which means the apartment has views over secluded communal gardens from almost every room. Nice.
