"The views over London from the flat are spectacular, particularly from the impressive corner window in the main living room"
A wonderfully bright two-bedroom apartment on the sixth floor of this seminal Grade II-listed development, located on Streatham Hill. Pullman Court was designed in the 1930s by the architect Frederick Gibberd, and is among the finest Modern Movement housing in the UK.
This flat is in arguably the best block at Pullman Court, situated at the rear of the site away from the road. It is offered for sale in very good condition, with painted concrete floors and stripped Crittall windows. The views over London from the flat are spectacular, particularly from the impressive corner window in the main living room.
The apartment has a garage en bloc and resident’s parking on the estate. The current owners have recently undergone the process of extending the lease.
Pullman Court was designed around several large and graceful trees which pre-date the building. It was originally designed to appeal to young professionals (each flat came with a wireless, a gas fire and an ice box built in) who wanted a “country retreat” out of the smog. There is an active residents’ committee at Pullman Court; many of the people who live there are genuinely passionate about the building, and this helps form a focus for the community, with summer barbeques and Christmas parties held in the landscaped grounds.
Pullman Court is located approximately 600m from Streatham Hill railway station, from where regular trains run to Victoria with a journey time of around 17 minutes. The nearest Tube station is Brixton (Victoria Line). Streatham Hill is served by particularly good bus links, and is well placed for road access to the South. The open spaces of Brockwell Park are within close proximity.

Pullman Court in Streatham, South London, completed in 1936, was designed by Frederick Gibberd when he was just 23 years old. The design addressed the city’s housing shortage whilst working with a increasingly available modern materials and an innovative design. The project and was notable for allowing a modernist architect freedom of design on such a large scheme.
White-walled and concrete framed, there are 218 one- to four-bedroom apartments in total spread across three blocks and set amongst landscaped gardens. The blocks are organised in order to capitalise on natural daylight and in a way that is sensitive to the landscape. A belt of mature trees diminishes noise from the road.
Each apartment was equipped with bespoke furniture and lighting, a pioneering move by Gibberd to create a strong discourse between the building’s exterior and the interior environment.
In 1995 the external fabric of the buildings was expansively refurbished and the development was upgraded from a Grade II to Grade II*-Listing.
