2 Bedroom flat
Arlington House, Margate
What do you mean you don’t want to live in Margate? It’s by the sea, there’s the nice new Turner Contemporary Gallery and this flat is only £56,000. Fifty six thousand pounds!!
This two bedroom property is located in Arlington House, an iconic 18 storey concrete tower that hits you as soon as you step out of the train station (which incidentally was designed by Maxwell Fry).
Designed by Russell Diplock Associates and completed in 1964, the development was typical of its time in that it put forward an integrated scheme with a large car park, a shopping centre and a residential tower block. The elegant design of the tower’s elevations, whose wave form in some way reflects its seaside setting.
Sadly plans of a giant Tesco threaten the future of Arlington House. Go here for more information and to support Arlington House.
