This superior two-bedroom penthouse in Clerkenwell has extensive private terracing with fine views, underground parking, and direct lift access. It forms part of the Dance Square development designed by DGA Architects.
The apartment has a living wing and a sleeping wing, which are bisected by a dramatic entrance atrium. Arriving via the lift and a high-security door, the visitor is presented with views over rooftops and a bespoke water feature through full-height sliding glazed doors. The quality of the materials is immediately evident, with a poured resin floor and a ceiling clad in Dinesen timber.
A sliding glass door leads to the open-plan reception room, kitchen and dining area. This wonderful room has extensive amounts of glazing, a gas fireplace, and a Bulthaup kitchen with a utility room beyond. Glazed doors slide back to reveal a sunny roof terrace, with a large seating area and a dining area beneath an arbour.
The master bedroom has a semi-open-plan dressing area and an en-suite bathroom with a timber bath and separate shower. There is a second double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, and a separate cloakroom for guests. Both bedrooms open onto the terrace. This apartment can be converted into a 3 bedroom flat. Please call TMH for further details.
The penthouse measures approximately 2,500 sq ft internally, with approximately 1,500 sq ft of terracing. It was constructed using a Cross-Laminated Timber frame, and the distinctive grid of the structure has been celebrated and left exposed on the ceilings. A DemoPad home automation system is used to control the heating, cooling, curtains and audiovisual equipment. The apartment has a designated parking space at the base of the building, and Dance Square has a 24-hour concierge.
