2 Bedroom flat
The Beckers, Rectory Road
London N16

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.

2 bedroom flat
Park Court
London SE26

Oh what a muddle! If you fancy a bit of a project, here’s a two bedroom flat in Park Court. A a private development designed in the 1930s by Frederick Gibberd (better known for Pullman Court in Streatham) the flats were built to a very high specification, with patented double-floors to reduce noise, electrical heaters in airing cupboards and beneath the deep lounge windows, and an ‘Ascot’ instant hot water system for the kitchen and bathroom.
Park Court was regarded as a notable development from the start, and widely written-up when it was completed. The average rent for a flat in 1936 was £140 per year. The 1980s saw the addition of the ‘Mansard’ flats at the top of the building, so gone is the elegant flat roof.

A rather hefty price tag in my opinion, view the listing here.
