The photography also shows an apartment that sits well between the past and the present, with stripped Crittall windows, painted concrete floors and a muted overall design with a mix of classic and modern design throughout.

As for the layout, that is two bedrooms (with one used as an office judging by the imagery), the kitchen, a bathroom and a good-sized reception room. You also get ‘a garage en bloc’ and some resident’s parking on the estate.

There is always more than meets the eye to these places and in the case of Pullman, there is an ‘active’ residents’ committee and a strong community, with summer barbeques and Christmas parties held in the landscaped grounds.
