Fancy looking down on the centre of London from the 34th floor of a grade II-listed tower block? That’s what is on offer if you buy the three-bedroom flat on offer in the Shakespeare Tower on the Barbican estate in London.
The build was completed in 1973, listed in 2001 and with an interior re-design by Sergison Bates, which is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your love of period detail or high-end finish.
For your cash, you get 1,010 sq ft (93.8 sq m) of internal space that
covers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one en-suite), a 21ft reception room,
kitchen, dining room and utility room. There is also a west-facing
balcony leading off the reception room (with space for a table and
chairs), as well as a narrower balcony that runs along the entire
length of the flat, accessed from the bedrooms.
None of which comes at a price – £990,000 to be precise, as well as a £5,000 annual service charge.
