This impeccable penthouse spans the third & fourth floors of The Henrietta, a handsome period building forming part of the Covent Garden Estate, adjacent to St. Paul's Church and one of only a handful of residential blocks located directly on the Piazza.
Developed by Capco and architects Argent Design in 2012, The Henrietta was Covent Garden's first landmark luxury residential scheme, featuring only four carefully considered apartments and highly prized to this day for its architectural heritage, meticulous attention to detail and enviable location. A dedicated building manager is shared with sister building The Russell, with 24 hour security, street cleaning and estate wide landscaping provided by the Covent Garden Estate team.
The apartment features exceptional contemporary finishes throughout, with many well considered architectural touches including a beautifully crafted, curved staircase as you enter, linking the two well-proportioned floors of accommodation. Numerous windows feature on all sides, along with a number of skylights on the upper floor that bathe the entire apartment in wonderful light from every angle, creating beautiful lightplay across the upper floor throughout the day.
The apartment also features a private, west facing roof terrace, perfect for taking in the sunset across the rooftops of London's West End.
Covent Garden is globally recognised as London's premier cultural, retail, leisure & entertainment destination. Notable restaurants include Balthazar, The Ivy Market Grill and Sushi Samba, as well as the much lauded Frenchie, Oystermen, Cora Pearl and Taiwan's legendary Din Tai Fung. The Henrietta Hotel has a fantastic cocktail bar & restaurant, with nearby Floral Court providing a tranquil oasis with fantastic
al-fresco dining at Petersham Nurseries La Goccia and The Petersham.
High end fashion & beauty retailers rub shoulders including Tom Ford, Burberry, Gucci, Tiffany & Co, Aesop, Polo Ralph Lauren, London's flagship Apple Store and Paul Smith's eponymous boutique on nearby Floral Street.
The Royal Opera House dominates the piazza with world renowned residents the Royal Ballet & Royal Opera, plus many of the world's most popular stage shows can be found at the numerous theatres within a few minutes walk. Hidden away between Henrietta Street & King Street is the quiet public space of St. Paul's Church gardens, providing the perfect antidote to the hustle & bustle of the Piazza, with the open space of Embankment Gardens and the river Thames only a short stroll across the strand, and the Southbank just a short trip across the river via either Waterloo or Hungerford Bridge.
