Amazing Flat in London with Green Views Over a Peaceful Park
This exemplary two-bedroom ex-Local Authority duplex with south-facing garden and balcony is located on the iconic Alexandra & Ainsworth Estate in St Johnís Wood. Built in the late 1960s to a design by the revered Modernist architect Neave Brown, the development has been given a rare Grade II* listing by English Heritage in recognition of its architectural significance. This flat has a particularly good position on the estate, with green views over a peaceful park to the rear. It has been sensitively refurbished by the current owner, an architect, who has fitted a modern kitchen and bathroom and solid oak floors in recent years. The best original features have been retained, including the sliding door that separates the reception room from the dining area, the timber staircase, the fitted wardrobes, and the wonderful glazed timber-framed sliding doors.
