Yes, another chance to live in this icon. Although the apartment in the Berthold Lubetkin-designed Grade I-listed Highpoint I building in London N6 now on the market probably needs a little but of updating.
Not much and in truth, it’s probably a decor thing. But just don’t expect the cutting edge finish that some of these places offer.
Outside of that, this is a very desirable space, located on the sixth floor of the iconic building, with ‘exceptional’ views from both sides of the apartment. Hopefully the images bear that out.
Designed by Berthold Lubetkin in the 1930s and Grade I-listed by English Heritage, Highpoint I is one of the most important residential modernist buildings in London.
As is appropriate for a building of this standing, it is also superbly maintained, with a stunning communal area, recent upgrades to the boiler, lifts, roof, exterior and windows and of course, some wonderful external space. More on that later.
For now, let’s look at the flat / apartment here, which covers around 900 sq. ft. and comes with the original Crittal windows, which fold back to reveal southerly views over the city.
That space is dominated by the large reception room, which in turn leads to a separate kitchen. There are two double bedroom with views to the north, a modern bathroom, area and a study / third bedroom. A utility and entrance hall complete the layout.
As we mentioned, Highpoint has added benefits for residents too, including a 24-hour porterage service, lift access, lovely communal gardens with extensive lawns, a climbing frame, residents’ tennis courts and a heated outdoor swimming pool.
Off-street parking too (but on a first-come first-served basis), while each flat also has a sizeable space in the basement for storage. Nice t keep the clutter out of the way.
Always desirable and never cheap, this one is up for £975,000. Service charges too, which work out at around £8,359 per year.
