Another day, another apartment for sale on this iconic brutalist development. Specifically an apartment in Andrewes House on the Barbican Estate, London EC2Y.
Andrewes House was the second Barbican block to be finished on the site, dating back to 1969. A terrace block, it runs along the side of the lake, from the bridge across the lake to the waterfall at the far end. Nice spot.
In total, it contains 192 flats, with this one being a ‘Type 20’ on the 5th floor of the block. We have only mentioned the block once before when a two-bed came up last year.
So a south-facing, L-shaped apartment with views from the rear double bedroom overlooking the charming residents gardens and lake. Original details are still in place, such as the full height, triple width glass sliding doors leading to balcony, the original bathroom and WC and the original built-in wardrobes. But not the kitchen, which has been replaced in the fairly recent past.
Space is pretty self-explanatory, with the kitchen, bathroom and man reception area. The ‘L shaped area’ is often used as a spare bedroom or study according to there agent. A double bedroom with those original wardrobes finishes things off.
Underfloor heating throughout, which is included in the service charge. That charge is obviously worth investigating and factoring into your budget too.
Just on the market, if you fancy living in this corner of the Barbican you will need around £885,000.
