Yes, another slot has come up here, but you will need to have some cash in the bank to consider this apartment in the Berthold Lubetkin-designed grade I-listed Highpoint I in London N6.
Either that or a generous mortgage. Either way, money definitely talks when it comes to living here, both in terms of the apartment and the service charge. More on that a little later.
For now, let’s talk Lubetkin. Berthold Lubetkin was indeed responsible for this 1930s grade I listed build, one of the finest modernist residential spaces in the UK. Possibly top of the pile.
The apartment here is on the sixth floor and has been refurbished. Although there is only so much you can do to refurb one of these places. Essentially it’s all about updating the decor and facilities.
This one offers around 900 sq. ft. of living apace, with a large reception room complete with windows that ‘fold all the way back’ to offer some amazing southerly views towards the city. See the listing for an idea of just how that works out.
Beyond that is a kitchen that is ‘larger than most in the building’ and with an eat-in breakfast area, as well as two double bedrooms and a (very) modern bathroom. You also get a utility room off the entrance hall.
Of course, your own living space is only part of the story when it comes to Highpoint I.
The building itself, described as ‘immaculately maintained’, has had recent updates to the boiler, lifts, roof and exterior. Within that building is a porterage service, which will assist with everything from sorting out repairs and deliveries through to organising medical assistance. You also get a good-sized storage area of your own in the basement too.
Outside the house are the wonderful communal gardens, a climbing frame, residents’ tennis courts and a heated outdoor swimming pool. Off-street parking for residents too, but on a ‘first-come first-served basis’.
The downside of all of that? Well, that service charge, which is £8,276.40 per annum. Not a small amount of money. Especially when the asking price for the apartment is £975,000.
