Situated on the 2nd floor is this stunning Type 21 two bedroom apartment.
The bedrooms have original built in cupboards and access to balcony and fire escape. It is partly open-plan to the wonderful dining room, which has double-width, full-height sliding doors to a balcony with glorious south-facing views over the gardens and the kitchen and bathroom have been updated by the Thompson Brothers
All residents have access to communal gardens throughout the development. Speed House is a low-rise block located on the eastern side of the estate, parallel to Silk Street. It forms the northern boundary to Speed Garden, which has its own playground, and is positioned between Willoughby House and the Guildhall School of Music. Completed in 1969, Speed House was the first terrace block to be erected at the Barbican.
The Underground stations of Barbican (Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) and Moorgate (Northern, Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) are both within easy reach. Moorgate also offers National Rail services. The flat is well positioned for access to the Barbican Arts Centre, Smithfield Market, and the bars and restaurants of Clerkenwell. There is a Waitrose supermarket on Whitecross Street, and One New Change is just a short walk away, with cafés, restaurants and flagship fashion stores.
