Prepare for the heat with this penthouse, which has a roof terrace that’s bigger than most London one-bed apartments
The forecasts are in and the weatherman says this summer’s set to be a scorcher. Fortunately, roof terraces are hot stuff these days as rooftop bars, cinemas, gardens and yoga have swept through the city. In 2015, if it’s not high, it’s not fly.
The same rule applies to property; homes with terraces can command enormous premiums, especially if it’s in a central location with an enviable view. Bear this in mind when you see the valuation of 50 Bolsover Street in Fitzrovia, which has one of the largest private roof terraces in central London.
Split into two levels, it’s bigger than most one-bedroom apartments, measuring 1,632sqft. It also boasts views across Regent’s Park to the north and takes in key landmarks to the south, including the London Eye and the Palace of Westminster.
It occupies the entire top floor of a triplex penthouse sitting atop Fitzrovia Apartments, a new development pioneered by Chiltern Firehouse developer Manhattan Loft Corporation. In fact, it’s less than a 15 minute walk away from the celebrity haunt and it has three tube stations within its sights, Great Portland Street, Regent’s Park and Warren Street.
Spread across the sixth, seventh and eighth floor, it has three ensuite bedrooms, an imposing entrance lobby with double height ceilings, an open plan kitchen and entertaining area, 24-hour security and underground parking. It’s also fitted out with an integrated smart system to control sound, lighting and temperature. Very cool, indeed.
