Fancy living in a brutalist icon? You can if you opt for this apartment in the Erno Goldfinger-designed Trellick Tower, London W10.
Pretty high up too. This place is on the 24th floor of the grade II-listed building, which obviously means some stunning views of the capital each and every day, either from your bedroom window or your balcony. Probably means quite a long trip in a lift too.
As you might well know, this brutalist masterpiece dates back to the 1960s. It was originally designed as social housing and while there are still some social tenants in here, many of the apartments have been sold off as the desirability of the building and London prices have gone on the up.
It is still a ‘love it or hate it’ building, but if you are a fan of the style (and we are), it really is something to admire and aspire to. Not many apartments in here have come up for sale of late, but there is the odd rental opportunity. This is one of them.
It’s a one-bedroom apartment and as such, space isn’t as plentiful as some of the apartments featured on these pages. But if you don’t carry too much with you, there should be enough.
Newly refurbished and fairly neutral, the apartment is furnished and has a ‘well proportioned’ reception room with access to a private balcony, a ‘good sized’ bedroom and a modern kitchen and bathroom. Those views too, as well as a 24hr porter service.
If you fancy moving in, £385 per week, which is around £1,668 pcm.
