Behr & Butchoff is delighted to represent an exceptional penthouse apartment atop London House in one of St John’s Wood’s most prestigious locations. This 9th floor property comes to market at an exceptionally pertinent time as it ticks all the boxes for a buyer who wants to retain a Central London address but enjoy all the benefits of private outside space and breathtaking city views.
This penthouse would make the perfect London base for those looking to split their time between the city and the countryside, as well as the ideal permanent property for someone looking to walk to work, or divide their time between a shared business hub and a home office. For sale for the first time in 50 years, this penthouse is complete with the benefits of allocated underground parking, a direct passenger lift, entry phone, CCTV and porterage.
Marking this penthouse out from others on the London market is its exceptional terraces, which encompasses every side of the penthouse. There are multiple access points from different rooms and the terrace itself is deep enough to accommodate bistro furniture and plant pots – ideal for creating a verdant and relaxing rooftop garden.
The deal clincher is, of course, the panoramic views across London, which can be enjoyed with a morning coffee or cold beverage at sundown. Rest assured, these same captivating views can be enjoyed year round, with expanses of glass in all of the principle rooms framing the cityscape from within.
Square footage to rival a house
This penthouse yields almost 3,000 square feet of living space, with all the rooms and specification one would expect from a large house. Each of the four bedrooms is generously double in size with a dressing room and four-piece, en-suite bathroom serving the master. Elsewhere is a dedicated study for those looking to work from home more.
Three further bedrooms and a bathroom are laid out to form an almost self-contained ‘wing’, while a reception room, separate dining room and open plan kitchen/breakfast room give ample entertaining options. A third bathroom and sauna complete this accommodation.
On your doorstep: Walk to London’s finest
London House is set at the end of Avenue Road in NW8, just moments from Regent’s Park. Here 395 acres of open space play host to formal gardens, playgrounds, sporting facilities, an open air theatre, a boating lake and the famous London Zoo.
The new owner of this penthouse can also take a short stroll to St John’s Wood High Street to enjoy the bars, boutiques and independent stores that infuse this corner of the capital with an immense village-like feel. Primrose Hill, Lord’s Cricket Ground and Abbey Road Studios are also within touching distance.
