We do love this building, so good to see another apartment in the 1930s Frederick Gibberd-designed Pullman Court in London SW2 up for sale.
The modernist building is, of course, grade II-listed. The work of Frederick Gibberd and a development that has stood the time very well. Ok, there is some room for criticism (more on that in a moment), but if you want living space of this era, there is much to appreciate here.
According to the agent, this flat is in ‘arguably the best block at Pullman Court’ at the rear of the site away from the road and in ‘one of the most secluded sections of the building’. Another selling point (for us anyway) is the neutral finish within. Throw in some double-glazed Crittall windows and you have the makings of a very hip ‘30s-inspired space with the right interior detailing.
Our only moan, as it is in many places we see of this type, is the layout of these places. A good-sized living room for sure, along with a couple of bedrooms and the bathroom. But the kitchen is definitely on the small side and if you love the idea of spending a lot if time in that room, be prepared to be very neat and tidy. But as these apartments were built in the days of eating out rather than eating in, you can understand why. Saying that, if you eat out a lot, it’s probably not an issue.
In addition to your own apartment space, you also get free parking, fibre optic broadband and has a ‘brand new staffed full-service laundry facility’. So no reason not to be look your best. But note the service charge of around £2,186 per annum.
There’s also a strong community here too, with many of the residents passionate about the place. That’s got to be another selling point, especially if you don’t know too many people in the area.
£375,000 is the asking price of this one.
