This is actually a block we haven’t featured before. Breton House is a terrace block completed in 1972 and made up of 99 studio flats over six floors, along with 12 two-room penthouse maisonettes. This one is one of the Type F2A studio apartments.

There are two things to note here. Firstly, this is a studio and as such, space is always going to be limited. Secondly, it does have many of its original features still in place. Always a selling point here.

Head up to the third floor of the block and you’ll find it, made up of the main living space, with an original Brook Marine kitchen, as well as a dining, seating and bedroom area.

Triple-width floor-to-ceiling windows are obviously in place, with a sliding door accessing a long balcony to take in the views and according to the agent, the morning sun too. When it decides to come out.
