A three-bedroom flat in a tower block has been put up for sale for an eye-watering £1.15 million. The 1,018 sq ft (95 sq m) apartment has a tiny balcony, one reception room, and a kitchen. It occupies two floors of the distinctive 1960s, Grade II listed Trellick Tower in Kensal Town, West London. While the décor may appear outdated and the exterior of the block drab, the kitchen boasts oak wood around the cupboards and a good amount of space, including an oven and hob. The main bedroom has a large window with views over London, while the slightly smaller second bedroom has ample storage and another large window. The third bedroom, currently used as an office, is tastefully decorated with wooden furnishings.

The apartment, which has original metal storage heaters and steel door-frames that have been lovingly refurbished, is being sold by The Modern House estate agents and advertised on Rightmove. It has 270-degree views across London and has enjoyed an exacting renovation by design studio Krokalia. Handmade Zellige tiles form the splashback above quartz worktops and solid oak cabinetry, and polished concrete floors add a contemporary feel in a nod to the building’s original construction, while burnished brass handles create a textured aesthetic. The bathroom and WC have taken inspiration from the material palette of the kitchen in their decorative choices, including large white tiles that mirror the Zellige-tiled splashback. The current owners have added a new boiler to ensure excellent water pressure throughout the apartment.

The average price of a house in the area is £862,000, making the £1.15 million price tag for this flat even more striking.
