Obviously this is a far more modest affair. But very much in the same style and of a similar era.

According to the agent, it is ‘oriented towards the south-east’ and is ‘flooded with natural light’. Both plus points. Another is the view over the communal gardens, courtesy of those large and original metal-framed windows.

Also original are the radiators and bedroom wardrobes, with the rest of the flat described as a ‘wonderfully eclectic and textured space’ with stripped wooden floorboards and bare plaster walls.

As we said, this is a modest space, with the apartment pretty much the living room / kitchen space, the single bedroom and a bathroom. So one for people who live in a fairly minimal way.
