This sought-after Type 21 Barbican apartment, located on the 6th floor of Speed House, has two double bedrooms, a large reception room and balconies at both ends. The reception room has a delightful southerly aspect overlooking the Barbican gardens.

The flat has been refurbished to a high standard by the current owners, who have installed a modern kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, as well as ceramic floor tiles that run throughout. The bathroom is in largely original condition, and the original door furniture and built-in storage units have been retained. There is under-floor heating throughout.

Speed House is a low-rise block located on the eastern side of the Barbican Estate, parallel to Silk Street. It forms the northern boundary to Speed Garden, which has its own playground, and is positioned between Willoughby House and the Guildhall School of Music. Completed in 1969, Speed House was the first terrace block to be erected at the Barbican.

Moorgate Underground (Northern, Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) and National Rail Station is very close by, and Barbican Underground (Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan Lines) is also within easy reach. The flat is particularly well-positioned for the Barbican Arts Centre. It is also well-placed for access to Smithfield Market, as well as the bars and restaurants of Clerkenwell. There is a Waitrose supermarket at the Barbican. All residents have access to communal gardens throughout the development; the gardens immediately behind Speed House have a playground.

Lease: 125 years from 1981
Service charge: currently £3,144 per annum (includes heating, exterior maintenance and building insurance)
