A unique property for sale. This two-bedroom ex-Local Authority upper duplex is located on the iconic Alexandra & Ainsworth Estate in St John’s Wood. Built in the late 1960s to a design by the Modernist architect Neave Brown, the development has been given a rare Grade II* listing by English Heritage in recognition of its architectural significance.

The flat has its own entrance. Internal accommodation measures approximately 679sq ft over two floors. On the ground floor is a master bedroom with built-in storage, a second bedroom and a bathroom. The second floor contains an open-plan reception / kitchen / breakfast room, opening onto a terrace. Both the kitchen and the master bedroom have leafy views over the communal gardens at the rear, and large windows maximise the natural light.
