Amazing how prices have creeped up for these places in the last few years. Which means this one-bedroom Type 53 apartment in the Chamberlin, Powell and Bon-designed Barbican Estate, London EC2 certainly doesn’t come cheap.

But it’s certainly appealing to the eye and definitely appeals to our love of 20th century modernism. You’ll find this particular apartment in Defoe House, a low-rise block that was completed back in 1973 and like the rest of the estate, is grade II-listed.

The apartment covers around 698 sq. ft. of space, all of which has recently been refurbished. Judging by the images, to a very high standard too. The space is laid out with a large reception room, an open-plan kitchen that has retained most of its original Brooke Marine units, a bedroom described as ‘unusually large’ and with original built-in wardrobes, along with a white-tiled bathroom and separate WC. You also get access to the communal gardens throughout the estate.
