Yes, another opening in this ever-popular development. This time a triplex apartment in Bunyan Court on the Barbican Estate, London EC2.
As you might know (if you are familiar with the Barbican), Bunyan Court is a terrace block that sits in the middle of the similar Bryer Court and John Trundle Court, together creating a ‘U’ shape. This particular block was completed back in 1972 to a design by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon. Like the rest of the estate, the block is grade II-listed.
The ‘M3A’ unit on offer here is described as a ‘very special’ two-bedroom triplex apartment, which takes in the fifth, sixth and seventh floors of Bunyan Court.
It has also been refurbished ‘with great detail’ by the current owners and also offers views across Beech Gardens towards and the Shard, overlooking the Fann Street wildlife garden to the north. That refurbishment does look like a really nice job, working with many of the original features whilst bringing the place into the 21st century. Love the built-in bed in the master bedroom.
As for space, the first bedroom, currently used as a study, is to be found off the entrance hall on the fifth floor. Adjacent to that is a shower room. That amazing original staircase leads to the double-aspect middle floor, which has a kitchen/diner at one end and a reception room at the other, with access to balconies on each side.
Finally, you’ll spot the barrel-vault ceiling of the top floor master bedroom, which leads to a roof terrace ‘large enough for plants, a table and chairs’.
Residents can also rent a parking space in the underground car park, which is serviced by a 24-hour concierge. Baggage stores available to rent across the estate too, if you need them and communal garden access too.
Never cheap, with this apartment up for £1,250,000.
