This is a fantastic ultra-modern penthouse flat, just off Tower Bridge Road, near the popular location of Bankside with its many attractions. Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Borough Market, London Dungeons, Clink Museum, Shakespeare's Globe and the Tate Modern are all within walking distance.
With its space and top quality kitchen, it is perfect for corporate entertaining during the Olympics or, indeed, any time throughout the summer. With the high-speed London Overground, you'll be able to reach the Olympic Village in around 25 minutes.
The apartment boasts an impressive 1,500 square foot of space. There's underfloor heating and a... collection of sleek furniture and fittings throughout.
The open-plan living and dining area has a glass dining table with red and white chairs and a Jasper Morrison glow-ball table lamp. There's a large L shaped turquoise sofa, with additional long ottoman, flatscreen tv and another Jasper Morrison standard lamp and Tom Dixon globes. Glass walls all around give you a panoramic view of the City. There's a top quality surround sound system and cinema projection on one of the walls.
The professional kitchen is kitted with Siemens appliances and the rectangular central island has a surface of polished concrete. There's a Binova hob, convection oven, steam oven, grill oven and a Gaggenau teppan plate for gently grilling and cooking sushi, a freestanding stainless steel wine rack and a sleek knife block. For washing things down, there's a high pressure, detachable ceramic disk tap. All of this will make a caterer's role a dream!
At the back of the kitchen is a fitted glass panel which goes through to the bathroom. This can be adjusted to be either opaque or clear. The bathroom has all custom-made fittings with a deep bath and a tv inset into the wall at the end of the bath! The surface is polished concrete with an inset sloping sink and the separate shower cubicle has a built-in steam unit.
Throughout this flexible space there is a specialist lighting system which can be set to change gradually through different colours or to mimic the sun rising or setting... create an ambience to suit your mood!
At the rear of this expanse is a sliding door to the cosy double bedroom.
The stairs from the kitchen lead up to an impressive roof terrace. This space is the same size as the apartment and is ideal for entertaining.
