A glamorous London penthouse with features that seem to redefine luxury has gone on sale for a quarter of billion pounds.
Currently on sale with Mayfair-specialists Wetherell, the refurbished penthouse is quite literally the height of luxurious home living. If the future owner ever needs a reminder, they can simply step out onto their wrap-around terrace for sweeping views of the city below.
The Wetherell website reads: “Originally designed by Sir John Burnett & Partners as a piano showroom the Art Deco Grade II listed building has been completely refurbished to a phenomenally high standard.
“The duplex penthouse is the pinnacle of this new boutique development of four apartments by Fenton Whelan.”
Spread out over two floors with 4,599 square feet of space, the penthouse is perfect for entertaining guests. The upper floor features primarily open plan areas, including a huge L-shaped reception room complete with a dining area and private terrace.
There is certainly no doubt that guests will be left stunned by some of the features on offer with the illustrious penthouse. The biggest draw has to be the incredible central kitchen island made from Makrana marble, the same material used to build the Taj Mahal.
A key feature for the upper floor, and one that does a splendid job of distinguishing the dining area from the rest of the room, is the hanging bronze and glass fireplace. While it is sure to serve as a wonderful conversation piece, especially with cold winter evenings already on the way, guests will have plenty more to be impressed by, including an onyx cocktail bar!
The master bedroom can be found on the lower floor. Wetherell claims that it can be separated from the rest of the property for “the ultimate in calm relaxation”, and that’s no lie: in addition to a wealth of space, the bedroom offers a ‘grand master bathroom’ with a soaker bath tub, as well as a fully fitted dressing room.
That is not to say that anyone else staying in the penthouse will feel slighted. Each of the other four bedrooms have marble bathrooms and fully fitted cabinetry, and there is even a separate two-bedroom flat for staff.
Wetherell continues: “This Grade II Listed, six storey Art Deco building was designed by Sir John Burnett & Partners, who were also responsible for the King Edward VII Gallery at the British Museum and Unilever House.”
The penthouse is currently available for £25m with Wetherell estate agents.
