A fabulous, one bedroom west facing flat with an extended lease with space for two people to work from home. Type 26.

On entering the property there is a large reception room with bespoke fitted storage/ media unit and a bookcase.

With floor to ceiling windows and a sliding door leading to the west facing balcony, the L- shaped reception room has ample space for a table and chairs and has fitted shelving.

The original galley kitchen has been sympathetically upgraded with a double oven, new stainless steel worktop and induction hob, space for a washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer.

The bathroom has been retiled to match the original tiles with the addition of a shower cubicle, original vanity unit, large storage cupboard, heated towel rail and a Saniflo w.c. There is also a separate w.c.

An inner hall area benefits from fitted shelving and is currently used as a study.

The bedroom has floor to ceiling windows and a door to the balcony and large fitted cupboards.

Gilbert House is arguably one of the most sought after blocks on the Barbican estate, sitting above the lake and located next to the restaurants and arts centre.

A large Waitrose supermarket is close by on Whitecross Street as is Moorgate Station and a Marks and Spencer food and clothing store on Finsbury pavement, five star hotels nearby include The Ned, Montcalm and the South Place Hotel. The new Farringdon Crossrail station is just a short walk away which will provide high speed journeys to Heathrow, Bond Street and Canary Wharf from 2022.
