Luxury central London Estate Agent Kay & Co is delighted to offer a penthouse at Fitzrovia Apartments; a magnificent three-bedroom penthouse spread over the sixth and seventh floors of the landmark building, on Bolsover Street in Fitzrovia.
With an eighth floor roof terrace overlooking Regents Park, Fitzrovia and the West End, the apartment was used by former Friends actor Matthew Perry as his London base whilst he performed in his hit West End show The End of Longing. The apartment totals over 2,475 Sq Ft and provides over 1,623 Sq Ft of outside terrace space, which offers 360 degree panoramic views of London. The penthouse is available exclusively through Kay & Co with an asking price of £6,995,000.
The average size of a home in the UK is around 990 Sq Ft, according to a 2015 report. The penthouse benefits from one of the largest roof terraces in London, with the eighth floor roof terrace alone totaling over 1,000 Sq Ft. A second wrap-around terrace, with access from both the open plan living area and master bedroom totals over 500 Sq Ft.
Martin Bikhit, Managing Director at Kay & Co said: “Fitzrovia Apartments are one of Fitzrovia’s premier schemes, offering a lifestyle and quality that is rare to find in the area. The penthouse is one of the crowning achievements of the scheme; the panoramic views from both the seventh and eighth floors are majestic, with the London cityscape to the south contrasting with the lush greenery of the Regent’s Park to the north. We feel that this would be the perfect property for a glamorous couple to call home.”
Designed around a central courtyard garden, Fitzrovia Apartments feature elegant modern architecture, with expanses of glazing and chic grey cladding. The scheme is built upon land that was decimated by bombing in World War Two.
Fit out and finish within the penthouse at Fitzrovia Apartments is of the highest quality; the kitchen is by German company Bulthaup, with in built Gaggenau appliances. Within the bedrooms, all cabinetry is by Italian company Poliform whilst the penthouse also benefits from comfort cooling, Crestron lighting and an integrated Audio Visual system.
The 100 apartments that form Fitzrovia Apartments are part of a larger 210,000 Sq Ft regeneration scheme on Bolsover Street, which will redevelop parts of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and provide a new state of the art Out Patients centre, now a Centre of National Excellence, as well as parking and prime office space.
A 24-hour porter is available on-site and a lift whisks residents and guests from the well-appointed lobby to the private 6th floor entrance of the apartment. The lower floor of the apartment (6th) includes the second and third bedrooms, both of which are ensuite and complete with generous fitted wardrobes. The second bedroom has access via a sliding glass door to a terrace, which runs the length of the bedroom and ensuite bathroom.
The 7th floor of the apartment has been given over to a large open-plan living area with inbuilt kitchen island/breakfast bar and double aspect, full-height windows. The room has cleverly been partitioned through the use of a statement wooden screen, separating the dining area that can seat eight people from both the kitchen area and lounge area. Wrapping around the living area is the first large terrace, which spans just less than 50 feet in length.
On the opposite side of the 7th floor is the glamorous master suite of rooms, with a walk-in wardrobe adjacent to a spacious master bedroom that has access to the wrap-around terrace. The master en suite bathroom is clad in marble, and features a standalone bathtub and double shower. A utility room and guest washroom complete the 7th floor.
The entire 8th floor of the penthouse is a roof terrace, accessed by staircase from the 7th floor terrace. With glass and metal sides and a teaked-deck floor, the incredible roof terrace provides enough space for separate dining and relaxation areas. From the roof terrace, residents and guests can gaze over the skyline of London, with the iconic BT Tower to one side, and the lush greenery of The Regents Park to the other.
Fitrzovia is an area that has traditionally been associated with literary figures, and was named by a group of writers who regularly met at the Fitzroy Tavern. Throughout the 19th Century the area was home to such luminaries at Virginia Woolfe, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud.
In the present day, Fitzrovia has become one of the most sought-after residential districts in London, complete with excellent restaurants such as Pied a Terre, The Ninth and Berners Tavern, and easy access to the shopping metropolis of Oxford Circus. Great Portland Street underground station (Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, Zone 1) is within a five minute walk of Fitzrovia Apartments whilst Warren Street underground station (Northern and Victoria Lines, Zone 1) is within a 10 minute walk of the property.
The Penthouse at the Fitzrovia Apartments is available to buy through Kay & Co with a guide price of £6,995,000. Underground parking is available through separate negotiation. For more information please visit www.kayandco.com or call T: 0207 486 6338.
