If you are looking for a spacious apartment in the heart of the City of London with a real wow factor, our newest instruction within London’s famous Barbican Estate is one to view. Offering outstanding transport links, excellent local amenities and a world-class view of some of London’s most iconic landmarks, this extremely rare type P2A penthouse maisonette really is the pinnacle of city living.
As well as its fantastic Brutalist architecture, famous dolphin pool and inspired landscapes, one of the Barbican Estate’s best features is how well connected it is to the rest of London. This fantastic central location makes it ideal for those who need to commute across the capital. The estate is a short walking distance to some of the stations below:
- Farringdon station – currently servicing the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines (0.1 mile) is due to be connected to the Queen Elizabeth Line (widely known as the Crossrail project) once it opens. This new line will extend the reach of many within the city, offering quick connections to Heathrow Airport, Reading and Uxbridge.
- Barbican – Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan underground lines (7 mins walk – 0.3 miles)
- Moorgate – Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Northern Line (5 mins walk – 0.2 miles)
- Liverpool Street – Central, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan lines and National Rail (13 mins – 0.6 miles)
There are also a vast number of bus routes that are available from various stops that are all within a short walk of the estate.
One of the most striking aspects of the property is the sheer amount of space on offer. The open-plan living area offers a huge amount of space (19’ x 16’ 6” including kitchen area) with an equally large bedroom (same dimensions as the living area) on the floor above. The space on offer allows the property to be uniquely configured to meet individual needs, and could even facilitate a home office with one of London’s most desirable views.
As you enter the property, you first come across the open-plan living area. The room offers a large living area and a sumptuous dark wood and black marble fully-fitted kitchen that is complemented by the room’s stunning dark wood flooring. The feeling of space in the living area is enhanced by being able to open the patio doors onto a unique 25 ft wrap-around balcony that offers a fantastic view of the city around you. While many properties on the estate have access to balconies, few offer such an expanse of space and an unbeatable view.
Moving upstairs via the gorgeous spiral staircase, you come across the sizeable, carpeted bedroom, with its roomy, double-height ceilings. Decorated in neutral tones and benefitting from huge swathes of natural light via the stylised barrel-vaulted windows, the room is large and light and offers plenty of room to cater for a variety of needs.
The bedroom leads out onto one of the property’s most unique selling points: the roof garden – which offers a view of some of London’s most iconic landmarks, such as Tower 42, the towers of St. Bartholomew’s Church, Centrepoint and even the BT Tower!
On this floor, there is also a modern fully fitted bathroom with a shower enclosure, basin and WC.
As you may have guessed, the Barbican Estate is ideal for those who want to make the most of the City of London. With world-class cultural, entertainment and historical venues, restaurants and a Waitrose – all on your doorstep, the location offers all a city dweller could wish for. As far as city living is concerned, there cannot be anywhere better in the whole of London for those who want to commute and also enjoy the benefits of living in a unique and exciting property.
