In the market for a new property? Try one of these luxe new London developments, or look further afield to the snow-crested French Alps or beach-fringed Mallorca

BRUTALIST BEAUTY

Ever wandered around London’s brutalist Barbican Estate and imagined yourself as a resident? Then snap up one of the apartments in Redrow’s soon-to-be completed Blake Tower, a luxury new development of 74 art-inspired homes, housed in a former YMCA hostel. Blake Tower is the Barbican’s fourth high-rise tower, and completes the Estate, which boasts a three-dimensional jigsaw of sunken gardens, flowing lakes and public walkways connecting residential towers to the Barbican Centre, with its year-round performing arts programme.

The 17-storey development, named after poet William Blake who once lived in the area, will provide far-reaching views across many of the capital’s landmarks, including the London Eye and The Shard to the south and Wembley Stadium to the north. The building was originally designed in the 1960s by renowned architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, and will house apartments ranging from 450sq foot to 2,000sq foot, with Barbican and Farringdon stations nearby providing transport routes across the city.
