An iconic build – and you could be a resident in a three bedroom apartment in the grade I-listed 1930s modernist Berthold Lubetkin-designed Highpoint building in North Hill, London N6.
Quite a mouthful, but it gets the point across. This is a fourth floor apartment in what’s described as ‘perhaps the finest Modernist building in London’. We wouldn’t disagree. Nor would English Heritage, hence that listing.
It’s an incredibly well-maintained building, as a look outside, inside in the public areas and in this particular flat will show. It also comes with a host of extras that hark back to its glorious heyday too – the building has a porter, that amazing entrance hall, lift access, stunning communal gardens, residents’ tennis courts and a heated outdoor swimming pool. There’s also that coveted off-street parking for residents too, but on a first-come first-served basis (not quite enough to go round).
The actual apartment doesn’t quite offer the period living you might expect, but it does offer high quality (and recently refurbished) accommodation that works within that period shell.
The space is around 1,173 sq ft and includes three double bedrooms, a bright 30ft reception room with original windows and access to a balcony, a newly fitted kitchen which is partly open-plan to the reception, a study and guest cloakroom.
The price for the apartment is £849,950, which gets you a share of the freehold. You’ll also be expected to pay a service charge of approximately £7,655 per annum.
