2 Bedroom flat
The Beckers, Rectory Road
London N16
£275,000

Despite having had a studio in Hackney for the passed five years, living in Hackney has never really appealed to me. What can I say, I’m shallow, when it comes to the crunch I like a bit more glamour (I’ve just returned from a visit to Patrick Gwynne’s The Homewood, and that’s got glamour in abundance!)

Unfortunately there’s not a lot of glitz in this two bedroom flat in one of the low-rise blocks in The Beckers, but for £275,000 I guess that’s ok. Designed by Sir Frederick Gibberd in association with G. L. Downing in 1959, the scheme comprises of two eleven-storey blocks, this two bedroom four-storey block and three blocks of three bedroom terrace houses. 

Originally all the flats were provided with underfloor electric heating, I guess this is no longer the case. That’s about as much as I know about this estate, it is only round the corner from my studio so I should probably go and take a look.

James Gibberd will forever be dead to me for listing MSR as something to be rid of in the XF revival. It was #4 on his damn list in EW of how to make the revival good. This reporter clearly doesn't get what's at the heart of the show.

You mean this piece? Yeah, it was a fairly benign list in my opinion (I mean, EW had to put out an immediate take upon revival news, and there was hardly anything revolutionary in this one), but when he described the first M/S kiss as “something that felt even more like kissing-your-sister than anything on Game of Thrones,” I was like, um, were we watching the same show? If someone watched TXF and didn’t see the slow burn of UST between our two leads, then, well, I can’t help them. As I said in my last post…to the left, to the left.
