residents are welcome to share their own history and photographs of Du
Cane through the years. Described at the time as "a magnificent up to
date building providing distinctive accommodation", Du Cane Court,
Balham High Road, was built in 1937 and completed in just one year.
Although the sales and rental information at the time stated that the
development was ready for occupation from June 1936.
With around 676 flats under one roof it is thought to be the largest
private block in Europe and since then a number of additional
apartments have been added to what were previously communal spaces such
as the seventh floor restaurant. If you were inspired by the
recent Art Deco exhibition, this is certainly the place to live. The
block's design is a classic of the genre, with vast pillars in its
reception. Residents benefit from the services of a 24-hour security
guard and reception, small communal gardens, a shop, as well as the
prime location, two minutes from Balham Tube and rail station.
