Spring is officially here - confirmed by both the meteorological and astronomical calendars - and London residents are itching to feel the sun on their faces once again. As with 2020, extra emphasis this year is on private outdoor spaces but with gardens at a premium in the capital, private balconies and terraces are high up on the ‘must have’ home moving list.
Behr & Butchoff prides itself on representing the capital’s most desirable apartments, and we have a number for sale and to let with low-maintenance, high-style balconies and terraces. Here is just a small selection – contact us for a full list of available apartments offered with private outdoor areas.
For a true outdoor room
The opulent new apartments and penthouses for sale at Marylebone Square feature distinctively detailed balustrades created by craftsmen at a local foundry. The fine fret-cut detailing and bronze finish is a stylish aspect of the balconies and private verandahs at this new development, with deep dimensions, composite timber decking, feature lights and a power outlet making it an effortless exercise to create a stylish outdoor room.
For fine London views
Avenue Road is home to probably the most extensive balcony in the capital – so comprehensive that it’s classed as a terrace. Wrapping around almost the entire perimeter of this four-bedroom penthouse, there are multiple outside access points from various rooms and spectacular, panoramic views, thanks to the property’s 9th floor position atop of one of St. John’s Wood’s most prestigious portered mansion houses.
For double the outside space
The choice of where to watch the sunset is up to the eventual buyer of this duplex penthouse for sale on Soho’s Great Marlborough Street. There is a sheltered, decked terrace off of the open-plan kitchen/living room which offers up the ideal spot for al fresco dinner parties, while a set of stairs leading to the 6th floor and a generous rooftop terrace from where you can spot some of London’s most distinctive landmarks.
For minimalist style
The duplex and triplex apartments to rent at Boydell Court in St John’s Wood Park trade on sleek lines and paired back elegance, which extends to their roof terraces too. Beautifully decked outside areas let the skyline views speak for themselves – simply accessorize with a hammock, some potted palms and a chilled negroni for a far-away vibe at home.
