Looking to move? Can't face another renovation? Check out these characterful properties.
The hard work has been done in these stylish homes, currently on the market with The Modern House.
Designed by Ernő Goldfinger in 1967, Balfron Tower is one of the UK’s finest examples of Brutalist architecture and was awarded a Grade II* listing by English Heritage in 2015. It’s now undergoing a complete restoration and refurbishment by award-winning architects Studio Egret West and Ab Rogers Design. The interior is a mix of mid-century and current deign, with terrazzo tiles in the bathroom and dark green and plywood cabinetry in the kitchen.
The current owners have completed a stylish renovation, which has maximised volume and light, in this three-bedroom upper and lower ground floor apartment. Located in a period property, close to Ladbroke Grove, it’s a short stroll from Portobello Road and the artisan coffee shops, independent shops and cool restaurants and bars.
Fans of New York loft style living will love this one-bedroom, ground floor apartment in a converted factory, with its huge Crittal windows and bare brick walls. Just a short hop from London Fields, you’ll be in foodie heaven with Raw Duck, Lardo and E5 Bakehouse among your locals.
