For sale: Apartment on the mid-century Golden Lane Estate in London

Golden

An apartment in a development with a heritage is available in central London – in Basterfield House on the Grade II-listed Golden Lane Estate.

It was designed by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon – the same people who later constructed the Barbican. They won a competition to construct a modern housing development to replace bombed housing from World War II – finally producing brightly-coloured developments with communal areas and courtyards. 

Basterfield House was completed in 1957, with the flat for sale
offering fairly open living, including the original open-tread
cantilevered concrete stairs, two double bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen
and reception. And as a bonus, residents get the use of a swimming
pool, as well as tennis and badminton courts, at ‘preferential’ rates,
along with guest bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms on the estate that
can be booked for the night.

The price is £485,000 for the leasehold property – not cheap, but certain to be a sought-after location for years to come.
