Not cheap, but this two-bedroom M3E apartment in Chamberlin, Powell & Bon-designed Ben Jonson House on the Grade II-listed Barbican Estate, London EC2 certainly offers stylish living.
Yes, you make your next home in this modernist icon, specifically in a split-level M3E apartment in Ben Jonson House which looks to have been maintained well, with a ‘retro-modern’ feel about the whole place. Mid-20th century modernist design currently mixing it with a host of midcentury fixtures, fittings and furnishings (with the exception of the modern kitchen and bathroom). Oh yes, this is one of only three split-level M3E apartments, so quite a rare find too.
With that apartment, you’ll find whats described as a ‘bright spacious’ entrance hall with a window and glass door leading onto a small balcony. Two bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a bath/shower room are also here, with the main bedroom also having glass door leading out to a small balcony.
That impressive mahogany staircase with built-in storage at the base takes you to the next level up with a south facing living room with a full height/width glass sliding door and window leading to a balcony large enough for a table & chairs.You’ll also find a kitchen/dining area with fitted cabinets, integrated dishwasher, washing machine and separate dryer, plus a fridge with ice box. Underfloor heating throughout this place too.
All residents have access to the resident’s gardens too, if you think you need more outside space than just the odd balcony. Price? As we said, not cheap at £995,000, that’s for sure.
