3 Bedroom flat
Dunboyne Road Estate
I’ve not seen one of these up for sale before. What a treat! Well, I mean, it looks terrible inside so you’ll have to use your imagination a bit. For those of you unfamiliar with this estate, it’s the Grade II listed estate by Neave Brown in Gospel Oak.
It was designed in 1966 and built between 1971 and 1977 and contains 71 flats (a mixture of 3, 2 and 1 bedrooms) arranged in three parallel blocks on a rectangular site. It was a precursor to Brown’s Grade II* Alexandra Road Estate, and was one of the first applications of low-rise complex section planning to a local authority estate.
It was granted Grade II listing in 2010, if you want to know more about the estate read this. The estate has been subject to recent renovations (not sure if it’s still going on?) with leaseholder facing massive bills. This particular flat says it has new double glazing, and thank goodness for the listing — no plastic windows.
If the asking price is anything to go by, I’m presuming this estate doesn’t face the same mortgage issues as Rowley Way. View the listing here.
