Property of the Month

December 12, 2013 by The Secret Property Agent

Moments from Battersea Park and set behind the original 1885 façade of The Old Bakery we found an off-market Penthouse flat offering thoughtful design and contemporary living

Location: Parkgate Road, Battersea
Size: 3,670 square feet
Price: £6.5M

We were very impressed with this recently completed Penthouse set behind the façade of one of Battersea’s iconic Victorian buildings. Here we found lateral living at is best; the flat great volumes which are flooded with natural light. Each of the three bedrooms is ensuite (we’d expect that!) but also steps put to one of three terraces. The 3,670 square foot scheme also contains a breakfast room in addition to a generously sized kitchen, library, media room and two parking spaces.

The flat incorporates the usual technologies we've come to expect in high end developments.  A thin heated membrane within the kitchen skylight evaporates condensation ensuring a clear view to the sky

Outdoor space is an important component of the overall scheme.  The Penthouse apartment has three terraces with each bedroom having access to outdoor space
