This fine example of a Barbican apartment, known as a type 41 is believed to be the only one of its kind, with an enviable South West aspect with views over the central Lake, St Giles Cripplegate Church, the Barbican Centre and the City Skyline.

Designed by the renowned Architect practice Chamberlain, Powell and Bon The Barbican is in our opinion one of the very best examples of Brutalist Architecture that can be found in London, which has a strong influence of Le Corbusier design.

Grade II listed, The Barbican is still the most sought after residential development within The Corporation of London, attracting all walks of life from Academics, Architects, Fashion Designers, Lawyers and Bankers to name but a few.

Its gardens and lake bring a little bit of "Country Life" to the Centre of The City and The Barbican Centre which is part of the Global Cultural Districts Network is the largest performing Art Centre in Europe, hosting music concerts, art exhibitions and film screenings.

Without a doubt Gilbert House is one of the most esteemed houses within the development, crossing over the lake, with possibly the best views of the Barbican Estate and lake itself.

The flexible accommodation comprises two good size double bedrooms, formal reception room, dining room, study, kitchen, recently installed bathroom and separate cloakroom.

Due to its orientation the rooms are flooded with light for most of the day as well as having access to the traditional Barbican balcony.

Local transport links are excellent with both Barbican and Moorgate Underground Stations a short walk away and Whitecross street with it superb restaurants and Waitrose supermarket is a few minutes' walk away.

A superb example and very rare Barbican apartment.
