Whittington Estate, N19

Peter Tabori, 1972-9

The Whittington Estate was designed by Peter Tabori who trained under Erno Goldfinger during Camden Council’s ‘golden age’ of progressive social-housing development. There are a mix of private ownership and social housing in the estate.

The estate is well designed and laid out. Some of the upper flats are accessed through a set of stairs and then a walkway which creates an area of open space and deters non-social behaviour.

There are a total of six parallel terraces which comprises of 271 units. The estate includes: Lulot Gardens, Retcar Place, Sandstone Place and Stoneleigh Terrace. The private units do go on the market once in a while and they get snatched up quickly as the popularity of modernist estates and ex-council homes continue to rise. I have seen the price of a one bedroom flat go for £295,000 in 2013 and then £399,950 in 2015! It is a great investment and this of course entices those cash buyer investors.
