Rare Townhouse in London's Iconic Barbican Estate Lists for $5M

Own a piece of Brutalist history

A couple of years ago, we brought you word that London's Barbican Estate, the 40-acre, 1970s-built concrete jungle by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, was having a moment, with apartments selling fast, and for upwards of $3 million—and others for close to $7 million.

Now, an apartment in the Wallside, one of the Barbican's many complexes, has just arrived on the market—a rare occurrence—and it's a doozy. This heritage-listed townhouse has five bedrooms that span five floors, a private garage, roof terraces that run parallel to the old City Wall, plus waterfront views.

Though the home has retained much of its original glory, the kitchen and ensuite bathroom in the master bedroom have been updated, and a sitting room with bar has been added on the top floor, from which the terraces can be accessed. And while the interiors are clean and chic, details of the iconic rounded arches and windows can be glimpsed throughout the home.
