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. The property has off-street parking (with a low monthly charge).
Rowley Way is located near the amenities of London’s famous Abbey Road, with a further range of shops, cafés and restaurants on St John’s Wood High Street and West End Lane. The open spaces of Primrose Hill and Regent’s Park are also within walking distance. The Underground is available at nearby Swiss Cottage (Jubilee Line), and the Overground at South Hampstead.
With its striking stepped concrete terraces, the Alexandra & Ainsworth Estate (also known as Alexandra Road) is the most famous of the social housing schemes built during Camden’s “golden age” in the 1960s and 1970s.
