Completely refurbished within the last two years and with lease extended, this one bedroom, Type 57 apartment is in keeping with the Barbican style and has an eye for detail.

The reception room overlooks the peaceful resident gardens with a full width window and door to the balcony/ fire exit. The south facing aspect enables the vendor to grow tomatoes, beans and other vegetables in the window boxes.

The open plan Thomson Brothers kitchen has a glass splashback, Caesarstone quartz worktop, cabinets inspired by the original Brooke Marine style with under counter lighting, integrated Miele fridge/ freezer, induction hob, dishwasher, combi microwave oven and separate full fan oven. The Quooker tap provides filtered cold and hot water. A new water tank was installed two years ago. A large island has been built with smoked glass cabinets on one side for glassware and large drawers on the other side for kitchen equipment. A floating bespoke shelf unit is just behind the front door, made from Corian, with additional usb and plug points.

The inner hall has been fitted with extensive storage matching the flat’s design, including large floor to ceiling cupboards, over-door and internal lighting, an area for coats and a wine cooler.

The bathroom has been converted into a luxury shower room, with a walk-in rain shower.
The bathroom storage cupboard houses a Miele washer/dryer. The mirror-fronted cabinets have concealed lighting above and below, and internally have electric shave points fitted. Additional storage cupboards are fitted below the Corian countertop with inset dual wash hand basins. The separate WC retains the iconic original wash basin with new taps, flooring, and back panel.

The bedroom, at the rear of the property has tranquil views over the podium, gardens and pond. The vendors have installed two walls of fitted cupboards with mood lighting above, a fitted desk with leather surface and a wood accent wall. There is a fitted floor to ceiling mirror. The flat benefits from Anywhere Boucle flooring throughout apart from the kitchen area, bathroom and WC which have tiled flooring. Full height doors have been added throughout.

Defoe House is well positioned for all of the amenities of the Barbican Centre. It is located close to Barbican station and, from 2022, close to the Elizabeth Line entrance on Long Lane. Central Line access at St Pauls is a short walk away. The many restaurants and bars in Clerkenwell and Shoreditch are close by, as is the Museum of London. Parking and additional storage under Defoe House is available by arrangement with the City of London. Other local amenities include a Waitrose supermarket on Whitecross Street, Virgin Active and other gyms, and shops at One New Change and Moorgate.
