A rare opportunity to live in a house in The Postern on the Barbican Estate, London EC2Y.
Rare because there aren’t many of them. There are just seven of these townhouses in The Postern, all dating back to 1971, grade II-listed and designed by Chamberlain, Powell and Bon, as you probably know.
All overlook the church and all offer quite a lot of space. Of course, you have to pay for that exclusivity and space. We’ll come to that in a moment.
But for now, let’s concentrate on the place for sale here, which is a Type 67/68 and one that has been ‘remodelled’, although not radically. The listing and the architecture restrict just what you can do.
The basis of the reworking here is decoration with a colour palette based on Maisons Jaoul in Paris (by Le Corbusier) along with some updating here and there. But there is plenty of originality still in place. A quick glance at the bathroom will tell you that.
As we said, quite a lot of space. Around 2138 sq. ft. in total over various level and with an open plan feel an internal open tread staircase.
The layout is described as ‘extremely flexible’ with three to four bedrooms, one to two reception rooms, a kitchen / breakfast room, two bathrooms, a utility room, balcony and your own roof terrace.
There’s also access to communal gardens too, as well as your own garage.
Of course, that doesn’t come cheap, especially when you factor in the Barbican factor. £3,200,000 if you want to live here.
