Even though it obviously needs updating, this three-bedroom apartment in the 1930s Berthold Lubetkin-designed Highpoint 1 building in London N6 is still not a cheap option.
That’s obviously down to the postcode and indeed the building itself, an iconic modernist build with grade I listing and still looking every bit the contemporary living space all those decades on.
Well, at least it does from the outside. The inside is a rather different story. This sixth-floor apartment does offer a good amount of space (1,181 sq. ft.), but the three bedrooms and two reception rooms (not to mention kitchen and bathroom) look stuck in an era. We would say the 1970s, touching on the 1980s generally.
That means a good amount of work to et it right – or the perfect opportunity to turn it into your dream home. Take your pick. Of course, you also get the benefit of a cool location, including extensive communal gardens, a ‘seasonally heated’ swimming pool, tennis courts and full-time porter service. Although there will be service charges to deal with that.
But the first thing you’ll need to deal with is the asking price, which is £999,950.
