Central home in Barbican
Modernism and vintage style in central London. 1 king size double bedroom, 1 single bedroom, bathroom, and bright open living space with kitchen. Close to restaurants, pubs, shops and entertainment. Excellent transport access to the Underground and bus routes and walking distance to many London landmarks.
The Golden Lane Estate is listed by English Heritage as a rare example of English modernist architecture. The architects, Chamberlain Powell & Bonn would eventually go on to build the Barbican Arts Centre, just 5 mins walk away, boasting 3 cinemas, a concert hall, a theatre, restaurants, bars and cafes.
The apartment is within a short distance of Clerkenwell, London’s designer district, and Smithfield, which has a particularly good selection of restaurants, pubs and bars.
A few minutes walk will take you to St Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge, the Tate Modern and the Globe Theatre on the river Thames south bank. Old Street “silicon” roundabout and Shoreditch are also in close proximity. Sunday is a chance to enjoy Colombia Road flower market and Spitalfields Market, both a leisurely stroll away.
The Golden Lane Estate has its own gym and swimming pool, as well as tennis and badminton courts. There is a Waitrose supermarket close by.
There are two Underground stations within very close proximity: Barbican (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines) and Old Street (Northern Line). Farringdon British Rail station with frequent direct trains to Gatwick Airport is also within walking distance.
