Then there’s the new build, with a bright and luxurious feel. With a series of shared spaces, the community feel here is strong – there are gardens, lounges, a games room, cinema, reading room and gym.

53 The Calls – These flats rarely come up for sale or rent but when they do, they’re not on the market for long. With original Victorian charm and unrivalled period features, it’s no surprise as to why this apartment block is so popular. Plus, there’s only 19 flats in the whole block.
