Hot Property: Penthouse 127, London EC1
Perched 154 feet in the sky above Tech City, Penthouse 127 is the best spot to enjoy epic 360-degree views of London’s coolest quarter. Get in the Cloud. Literally.
The Fendi- and Hermes-inspired home, on the market at £4.75m, has gone big on luxury brands, with Interior designer Ida Sophie Fabricius (of Studio55) festooning it with the likes of Fendi, Kenzo, Hermes, Giorgetti and Villiers. But then when you’re sitting above Old Street, favourite hangout of the hip, the cool and the informed types, it has to be right on the cutting edge.
Tudorvale, the developer behind the project, claims that “nothing of equivalent quality exists in the local housing market”, despite the Tech City area – which runs from City Road to the Olympic Village – being a hub of capitalist enterprise (home to over 600 digital and creative companies) and but a short stroll from the City and Hoxton.
Private, wraparound terraces are each carved up into three zones: Leisure, with an eight-person jacuzzi and outdoor shower; Living with an outside television and gas fire, and Dining, with outdoor kitchen, raised bar and fridge.
