An excellent example of a highly desirable, top floor, barrel vaulted flat in Crescent House (Grade II * listed), Golden Lane Estate.
The property has been updated throughout but still retains many of the original features. Comprising of a bright and spacious reception benefiting from floor to ceiling windows, a double bedroom separated from the main living space by the original sliding doors, a recently updated kitchen and bathroom.
The Golden Lane Estate was built in the 1950s to a design by the newly-formed practice Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, who later designed the Barbican Estate.
All residents on the estate enjoy the use of a swimming pool, as well as tennis and badminton courts, at preferential rates. There is a Waitrose supermarket close by, and the Barbican Arts Centre is also within walking distance. This area has a particularly good selection of restaurants, pubs and bars, and Smithfield Market is nearby.
There are three Underground stations within close proximity: Barbican (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines), Old Street (Northern Line) & Farringdon Underground (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines). Overground Rail Services are also available from Farringdon which will also benefit from Crossrail when it opens in 2018.
This property would make a fantastic first time buy, buy to let investment or pied a terre.
