Brutal and bold - Blake Tower is "the new kid on the block" when it comes to the Barbican Estate, now known as the fourth tower.

Built in the late 1960's it was named after the 18th-century English poet and artist William Blake, considered a primary figure in British history of poetry and visual arts.

The building was formerly the Barbican YMCA and is a wonderful example of Brutalist architecture designed by the celebrated architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and like the rest of the Barbican is Grade II listed. Converted into luxury apartments by the developer Redrow Homes with designs from Conran and Partners studio the building was refurbished and redesigned respecting all that is iconic about the Barbican architecture.

An extraordinary, contemporary space, arranged over the top two floors; with the favoured southwest aspect, it is one of the most impeccable homes to come onto the open market. It offers magnificent and versatile accommodation with great comfort in mind, immense amounts of storage, a day porter and the option of renting a parking space within the Barbican estate.

The accommodation comprises a super reception room with a comfortable living space, a dining area, seating and play zone. The reception room opens onto a semi open plan, exquisitely designed kitchen with plenty of storage, workspace and the highest quality fittings. On the same floor there is a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a further double bedroom, shower room, utility space, study area and walk in storage cupboard.

The top floor is the "grown-up area," a sumptuous double height space flooded with light and skylights, providing a private zone within this special apartment. It comprises a principal bedroom suite with sleeping area a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. This leads onto a wonderful roof terrace with super views. Also, on this level is another double height room with a wet bar, currently used as a home office and cinema room but which could offer multiple uses. A second terrace leads off this space again with noteworthy views.
