Of course, this was designed by Berthold Lubetkin, constructed by Tecton and is Grade I-listed by English Heritage. That’s because Highpoint I is one of the most important residential modernist buildings in the capital and as such, a very desirable place to live.

The units within obviously vary in size and finish, with this one being a three-bedroom apartment, one that sits on the third floor and has its own balcony space.

So a larger apartment, one that offers around 1174 sq. ft. of living space and a place described as being in ‘excellent decorative order’.

That is pretty much the case, as there is only so much you can doe to one of these apartments. it looks like thew original wood floor is still in place and beyond that, it’s really about the decor and the furniture. You can change the decor and the furniture is going, so perhaps best to look beyond that.

The only other major change is perhaps the kitchen and dining space. Kitchens were never hide in these places, so it looks like the space has been tweaked to improve things on that front.

Beyond that, the space breaks down as the entrance hallways, the 30ft reception room and its wall of glazing as well as an east-facing balcony, that kitchen / diner and three double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes. A bathroom and guest cloakroom finish things off.

If that’s not enough, there is also a heated outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts, as well as the substantial and well maintained grounds. All of that does comes at a price, with the service charge likely to be upwards of £8,000 per year.
