Type 66 Blake Tower


Type 66 is a one-bedroom flat type found on floor 01 of Blake Tower. It is the layout for Flat No. 11.

Flat 11 is at the front of Blake Tower (the Fann Street end) . It occupies the north-east quarter of the first floor of the building. Its windows face east.

Flat 11 It is entered off a corridor away from the lift area. On entering the flat you are almost immediately in the living/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen is along the front wall facing Fann Street. The east wall is almost all windows. There is a WC off a lobby next to the living area. This lobby area also has an entrance to the flat’s winter garden. (This used to be one of the landings of the external stairs of the building when it was occupied by the YMCA.) If you are buying this flat, you should clarify that the winter garden is included. You will see that on the plan it is not included in the grey colouring denoting the extent of the flat. The bedroom is off the other side of the living area. Near the entrance there are windows shared with the living area. Beyond the bedroom is the ensuite bathroom which has its own windows.

Flat 11 is almost a mirror image of Flat 14 on the other side of the building, but Flat 14 is about a square meter larger and differently laid out internally.
