Yes, we are back in the land of ‘love it or hate it’. Hopefully enough of you will love this 1970s Peter Tabori-designed brutalist apartment on the Whittington Estate, London N19.
In what’s described as a ‘favourable position’ in the southwest corner of the Whittington Estate, it was designed in the 1970s by the architect Peter Tabori during what is known as Camden Council’s ‘golden age’ of progressive social-housing development. If you want to know more about that, then you really need to order a copy of this book.
The building itself is notably for its ‘stepped’ shape, which offers each property plenty of natural light, with each apartment also having its own front door from the pedestrianised street.
This particular apartment has been taken on and refurbished by architect David Kohn, adding some modern-era style to an unmistakably ‘70s build. Basically the finish now looks clean and fresh, with the kitchen and bathroom equally contemporary and all sitting well in the brutalist surroundings.
As for space, you are looking at a layout over three floors, with the ‘raised ground floor’ offering two bedrooms, both with access to a balcony, a bathroom and some store rooms. The first floor has a south-facing reception room plus two sets of French doors onto another balcony, as well as a kitchen at the front.
The top floor is described as ‘flexible’, with one large front-to-back space opening onto another balcony.
These places are becoming more popular and more are moving from public to private ownership. It also means prices are rising too, especially renovated apartments like this. £825,000 is the asking price of this one, along with a service charge of around £2,300 per annum.
