Specialist estate agents, The Modern House, offer a chance to purchase a home inside a true London landmark. The imposing Barbican estate, a mix of residential units, offices, galleries, restaurants, colleges and more, stands as an icon of brutalist architecture, the work of  Chamberlin, Powell & Bon. A maze of concrete, the homes within, previously council run, are now Most Wanted. A sizeable price tag, this new to the market example won’t stay empty for long. 710 sq ft, refurbished and clearly loved, part of Defoe House completed in 1973, while this modern makeover is all very nice, we’re pleased to see some of the original features in tact including the Brooke Marine kitchen units, appliances and even those well-used switches.
