It is a block we have featured in the past, but this two-bedroom apartment in the grade II-listed Langham House Close, Richmond upon Thames, Surrey could be the pick of the bunch.
The building itself is interesting enough. Described by the 20th Century Society as ‘a benchmark against which all other apartment blocks can be measured’ and listed by English Heritage due to both design and maintenance, it really is a fine example of forward-thinking domestic architecture, as the images show. Credit to Stirling & Gowan and their work in the late 1950s for that.
But this place takes it up another level with the finish. Using the existing 1950s architecture, the owner has created a nice balance between retro style and practical modern-day living space. Not always an easy thing to do. Some great original features too, including ‘floating’ internal walls and the fireplace.
As for space, this is a first floor apartment in one of the ‘garden pavilion’ blocks, offering two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen / breakfast room, living / dining room and the bonus of off-street parking. Communal gardens too, which should be a welcome addition during the warmer months.
£425,000 is the asking price.
