A once in a generation opportunity to acquire the main penthouse at St. Pancras Chambers, an icon of London architecture and perhaps the most revered gothic building in the world, designed by George Gilbert Scott and completed in 1873.
This near 6000 sqft triplex apartment offers some of the most dramatic living space that we have ever seen, with quite an extraordinary scale throughout all of the bedrooms and in particular the main reception of mind-blowing character and proportions.
Currently offered with the completely bespoke fit-out of its distinguished owner, this property offers so much scope for the incoming purchaser to add their own identity to what can only be described as a unique canvas, be it for a grand pied-a-terre, a corporate showpiece in London or bespoke home in a world-class location.
Entered on the 6th floor via a private lift into the huge entrance hall, one’s eye is immediately drawn to the dazzling chandelier that hangs suspended throughout each floor of its domineering influence over the apartment. The ceiling height is reminiscent of a country house and this is shown off to dramatic effect in the sumptuous master bedroom residence, with its two bathroom suites, private study and stunning rooftop views across the city of London. This floor also comprises of two further very large bedroom suites and guest bathroom.
The seventh floor is the beating heart of the property, housing two kitchens, utility room, powder room, the plant room and a separate guest or staff annex.
Emerging from the staircase into the 8th-floor reception room must surely provide one of the most dramatic and unique private entertaining spaces in London. What was once the water tower for the original hotel, this is a room that is both steeped in history but modern in its proposal. The prominent and visually stunning exposed Victorian beams provide an intimacy to this vast space and allow for separate areas for music, games, dining, TV and most prominent of all, a large bar area for entertaining on a grand scale. It is a simply stunning room and one of the great surprises of the London property scene.
St. Pancras Chambers is a London icon; a building that needs no introduction. The building now houses a selection of beautiful apartments, a world-class hotel, a private members club, gym and spa and of course access to one of the world’s most beautiful train stations, with access straight to the heart of Paris on your doorstep. The apartment also benefits from 24-hour security and two parking spaces.
