Full description

A stylish and spacious first-floor three-bedroom apartment, in an architecturally-significant development, a tranquil oasis close to the Southbank and central London.
Lilian Baylis Old School is a former secondary school, built 1962-4 by the Architects Co-Partnership (ACP) in brick and exposed concrete, and listed by Historic England as a fine example of brutalist architecture.
This secure gated development comprises 149 homes including some new build, and covering 3.2 acres in total, incorporating extensive communal gardens, interconnecting courtyards and allotments. The development is monitored by a building manager, who is onsite weekdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Residents' parking onsite may be purchased or rented subject to availability and separate negotiation. Visitor parking is available on Lollard Street, with no restrictions during evenings or at weekends. There are cycle parking racks around the site, including two lockable sheds. The development incorporates a number of allotments which are free to use, subject to availability.
Block 20 is the former school library, featuring exposed supporting columns to this first-floor apartment. From an elevated position, wrap-around floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows look out onto the central courtyards, pond and fountains, and the park beyond. Within the apartment, high ceilings and doorways enhance the tremendous feeling of light and space throughout. Bespoke Duette thermal blinds in the living area provide year-round temperature regulation. The flooring in the apartment is a combination of engineered oak flooring, pure wool carpets and tiles.
The development is just 9 minutes' walk from the River Thames. Public transport links nearby include Lambeth North (14 minutes), Kennington (16 minutes), Vauxhall (18 minutes) and Waterloo (22 minutes). Cultural attractions within easy walking distance: Newport Street Gallery, Beaconsfield Gallery, the Imperial War Museum, Garden Museum, Tate Britain and Lambeth Palace Library.
