The Observatory is a light-filled three-bedroom penthouse apartment with private roof terraces, several balconies and an integral garage. It is brilliantly situated on Wyfold Road, close to the green spaces of Fulham Palace Gardens and occupies the vast lateral upper levels of a former paint factory.
Entry is via a gated foyer through which the apartment has right of way to a large internal double garage. A key-activated lift provides secure access, opening directly onto the apartment via an entrance hallway.
An expansive open-plan kitchen, dining and living room occupies much of the fourth floor, extending over 55 ft in length with soaring vaulted ceilings, and exposed timber and steel beams. Two sets of glazed double doors open to enclosed balconies and light pours through a wonderful arched Crittal window at the western aspect, one of four throughout. A breakfast bar separates the dining area from the kitchen which has Corian worktops arranged around a kitchen island and stainless-steel Brittania range cooker.
There are three double bedrooms, two with built in wardrobes, and all with Crittal windows in painted-brick surrounds. The master bedroom opens from the living room through full-height doors between floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. From here there is access to an enormous bathroom with walk-in shower and steam room, beautifully tiled in mosaics, with underfloor heating and illuminated by two rooflights. The bathroom has secondary access from the dining area through a short hall separating a utility room and guest WC. The two bedrooms at the south-east end of the apartment can be found, past the kitchen, through a hallway that turns with the curve of a glass-brick wall. Both bedrooms have rooflights and the larger has glazed doors onto a balcony. A bathroom with iroko surfaces and painted-brick walls is shared by both. Windows throughout are double-glazed.
