Modernist's playground

I love browsing websites with images of houses I may never be able to afford... is that aspirational? Perhaps. I still love it. And when I am in the mood to take a trip down millionaire's drive, I head over to 'The Modern House' and drool over the images of large homes made in the last Century under the guidance of a modernist architect.

One apartment stood out, not just because I have been lucky enough to peek inside another apartment in the same building in the past, but this Richard Paxton and Heidi Locher conversion is a beautiful creation in the heart of the capital.

Of particular interest, is the swimming pool that is adjacent to the living area. I guess you might have to pay rather attractive people to swim in it when you invite friends around for the inevitable cocktail parties. Yum.

The apartment is one of seven contained within an ex-industrial building and is quietly located on Corsica Street accessed via an electrically operated shutter gate. Just what the Doctor ordered, wouldn't you say?

£2,750,000 Leasehold, if you can stretch to that, but you might have to wait as this one has now been sold to a new lucky owner. Oh well, plenty more modern fish in the sea.
