It's the building you either love or hate, but there's no denying that Trellick Tower is an iconic piece of 20th century design. Want to live there? Well, an apartment has just come up for rent in the Erno Goldfinger-designed west London tower block.
Goldfinger designed the block in the late 60s and despite a large amount of contempt for it, Trellick Tower is grade II listed, so isn't going anywhere in a hurry. Admittedly, we've never been in the place, but we suspect the views from this 15th-floor flat are really going to be something special.
In contrast to the weather-worn exterior, the flat on offer looks very tasty, complete with those special views over London from both the reception room and the bedroom. The reception opens also onto a south-facing balcony. Aside from that, there's a modern shower room, a newly-fitted 'eat-in' kitchen, stone floor (with under floor heating) and built-in storage.
The majority of tenants are still council tenants, so we suspect you'll be paying more rent than your neighbour. How much more? Well, it's on offer right now for £1,516 pcm / £350 pw, with vacant possession of you're in a hurry.
