Once upon a time this was how you did social housing. Now this 1970s Peter Tabori-designed duplex apartment in London N19 is a sought after private living space.
You will find it on the second and third floors of Stoneleigh Terrace, on the highly sought-after Whittington Estate, which was, of course, designed by Peter Tabori during what is described as Camden Council’s ‘golden age’ of progressive social house building.
These modernist / brutalist apartments offer both distinctive style and functionality, with the ‘stepped’ design boosting the levels of natural light for each apartment, as well as terrace space at the front. In terms of access, that’s taken care of via a concrete staircase at the rear, with every flat having its own front door.
Head over that concrete staircase and you will find an apartment with around 835 sq. ft. of living space over its two floors. The front door gives access to a ‘wide’ hall, which in turn leads to a large master bedroom and doors to a south-facing terrace. A second double bedroom and a bathroom are also on this floor.
Head up the stairs to what is described as a ‘generous’ south-facing reception room, with dining area and kitchen. Like the room below, this also opens onto a terrace area, courtesy of the original, wood-framed, sliding doors.
That’s pretty much it really. Many of these places, like this one, are now on private hands and with the rise in popularity of brutalism, you can only see that increasing.
If you see this as your next home, you are looking at a price of around £625,000.
