It is currently something of a blank canvas, but this two-bedroom apartment in the Edwin Maxwell Fry-designed Number 65 Ladbroke Grove, London W11 is still an interesting proposition.
This is a two-bedroom apartment with balcony, found on the third floor of a grade II-listed 1930s block in Notting Hill. The work of British architect Edwin Maxwell Fry in collaboration with Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, the building looks to have survived the decades well – and this apartment in particular.That’s perhaps because of a recent refurbishment, hence the blank canvas you see.
Talking of what you see, this apartment offers a reception room with access to the balcony, a kitchen with serving hatch, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The reception room, master bedroom and balcony all have great views over trees and gardens towards the period houses on Lansdowne Crescent. There’s also a live-in porter, lift access and some lovely communal gardens. Parking is here to, but with just three non-allocated spots for 17 apartments, that might be something of a battle in the evening.
According to the agent, these apartments ‘rarely come up for sale’, so perhaps act quickly if you are interested. The asking price is £725,000, with a service charge from £8,000 per year, which includes heating and hot water.
