The Penthouse Collection, a stunning selection of luxury two and three-bedroom homes, by Berkeley at its 250 City Road development in London’s Zone 1 has now launched. Designed by renowned architects Foster + Partners, this striking mixed-use development in Old Street offers buyers an exciting opportunity to put down roots in ‘Tech City’.
Set across floors 34, 35 and 36 of Valencia Tower, one of two landmark towers that define 250 City Road, The Penthouse Collection embodies next-level London living. It combines an exceptional specification, stylish interiors by Studio 9 and breath-taking panoramic views over the capital. What’s more, according to UHY Hacker Young’s* latest research, City Road took the top spot in the UK for new business creation, highlighting it as a thriving London location.
Ranging from 1,609 sq ft to 2,950 sq ft, there are three, two-bedroom and two, three-bedroom homes available, three of which are triplexes. Each home also benefits from a private terrace, the most impressive spanning to a vast 837 sq ft on the 34th floor.
Every home enjoys an individually designed, bespoke layout with Berkeley’s attention to detail clearly evident in every property; full height glazing maximises incoming sunlight and the impressive skyscraper views from all the principal rooms.
The open plan design provides a seamless flow from the kitchen to the dining and living areas; two of the homes also benefit from a separate breakfast/dining area, offering the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee. The sleek kitchens feature stylish stone worksurfaces, sleek cabinetry and state-of-the-art Miele appliances, including a wine cooler.
Each of the spacious bedroom suites has an en suite bathroom or shower room as well as copious floor-to-ceiling wardrobes – two of the homes include large walk-in dressing rooms.
An array of exclusive five-star amenities enhance the luxurious lifestyle on offer. A fitness studio and terrace is located on the seventh floor, along with a business suite, residents’ lounge and private screening room. There is also a fully equipped spa, complete with a 20 metre pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room on the lower ground floor. Practicalities are taken care of with a 24-hour concierge on hand to help busy residents.
On completion, there will be almost two acres of Wi-Fi enabled green space at 250 City Road, providing a peaceful sanctuary amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. Berkeley has also delivered the UK’s first four-star nhow London hotel as part of the development, along with 75,000 sq ft of office space, marking an exciting addition to City Road’s Tech cluster.
Conveniently located in Zone 1, residents will be a short walk from some of London’s most buoyant employment hubs including Silicon Roundabout and the Square Mile, as well as the stylish neighbourhood of Shoreditch, home to a range of independent restaurants and bars. Commuters are a short walk from both Old Street and Angel tube stations; services from the former reach King’s Cross St Pancras in four minutes and London Bridge in five minutes.
