The views from the large private roof terrace are through trees towards the Thames embankment, this three bedroom penthouse was completed to the highest levels of design by Peek Architecture in 2015.
The apartment is in excess of 2,300 sq ft, with a large private roof terrace and a further 50 sq ft of demised storage space. Arranged over the second, third and fourth floors and can be accessed directly by lift to the third floor or by stairs as required.
Upon entering the second-floor landing, a large and versatile space with steps raising up past beautiful leaded sash windows and an exposed-brick wall, to reach the third floor.
A corridor leads through a glazed doorway, past the lift entrance and a guest WC, culminating in an open space which is currently used as a study. The three bedrooms are positioned on this level and all have en suite bath or shower rooms. The master bedroom has both.
The upper level of the penthouse is arranged in a wonderful open plan, blending kitchen, dining and living spaces and looking out through full-height glazing to the south-facing roof terrace. Beyond a glass balustrade is a further unofficial terrace which, though not demised, can only be accessed via the apartment.

Engineered-oak flooring with underfloor heating extends across the level and there is comfort cooling throughout. Lighting is by Rako design.
There are only four apartments in Gatti House, which is an elegant Grade II listed building originally designed by the architect Spencer Chadwick and built in 1886-87. It takes its name from the Gatti Family, founders of a number of remaining institutions on the Strand. Situated next door, the Adelphi Theatre is one of these and Gatti House originally served as its restaurant which was a favourite hangout for Dame Ellen Terry, Oscar Wilde and Noel Coward among others.
The Strand is a world-renowned address and is known as the very centre of London it connects Fleet Street with Trafalgar Square, running parallel with the river Thames. Gatti House is situated at a point just south of the cobbled streets of Covent Garden which in recent years has had considerable investment transforming it into a new era of shopping and dining with many boutiques, market stalls and an excellent array of restaurants, bars, cafes and theatres the area has it all. St Martin's Lane, the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery are all a short walk away. Charing Cross, Covent Garden and Embankment stations are all close by for tube and national rail services and there are numerous bus routes along the Strand.
