It is an area we have featured before, but this 1970s Peter Tabori-designed one-bedroom apartment on the Whittington Estate, London N19 is still worth flagging up, not least because these builds are particularly sought after.
Peter Tabori trained under Erno Goldfinger initially and designed this estate for Camden Council in the mid-1970s. It’s amazing to think that a council would sign off a design like this, but it was a very different (some would say more progressive) era. That bold approach to design is perhaps one of the reasons why the apartments on the estate have shifted into private hands, as is the case with this one.
The development is notable for its brutalist style, as well as the stepped profile that provides each property with strong levels of natural light. Every flat also has its own front door from the pedestrianised street. As for the one for sale here, it measures approximately 527 sq ft internally, with a double bedroom (with built-in wardrobe), bathroom, large south-facing reception room with its own balcony and kitchen. The corridor leading to the kitchen is also large enough to be used as a study or a dining area.
It needs updating in some places (kitchen for example), with an open day on 3rd August 2013 giving you the opportunity to see how much work is required. If you fancy it, the asking price is £295,000.
