A five-story penthouse boasting views of London’s Tower Bridge, the River Thames and the city skyline from its floor-to-ceiling windows and a multitude of terraces, is expected to fetch a lofty price of over £13 million (about US$16.66 million) after hitting the market earlier this month.
Dubbed The High Command, the 4,280-square-foot penthouse has more than 1,200 square feet of exterior space, spreading six terraces that face north and south.
“The views are fantastic,” Knight Frank’s listing agent James Crowley said, adding that the penthouse is one of the largest apartments in the neighborhood of Shad Thames.
The building, Anchor Brewhouse, is one of the three brewing houses on the banks of the Thames that were originally completed between 1894 and 1895. They were converted and restored during the mid-1980s, according to the listing.
The developer during the conversion kept the penthouse to himself, Mr. Crowley said. He refused to disclose the developer’s name, but said he is selling because he is not spending a lot of time in London anymore.
Spanning the seventh to 11th floors, the penthouse has plenty of entertaining and living spaces. The seventh floor comprises a spacious reception area with a separate kitchen.
The eighth and ninth floors house a master bedroom suite, with reception room, an en-suite bathroom and walk-in dressing room. There are two additional bedrooms and a separate guest bathroom.
The 10th and 11th floors feature a dome with a gallery and a gazebo.
There is a private internal elevator running from the seventh to 10th floors. Building amenities include concierge services and four private parking spaces.
