A rare opportunity to acquire one of only three penthouses set over the top three floors of Lauderdale Tower. Up until a few years ago this would have been one of the highest residential dwellings in London and indeed the original brochure describes Lauderdale Tower as “the westernmost of the three Barbican Towers and comprises 114 recently appointed flats, which on the higher floor levels command unparalleled views of London”. This is still true today almost fifty years later, and there is a wow factor from almost every room.
Refurbished to an extremely high specification, the 39th floor comprises a study/bedroom, with built in shelving, utility room and shower room. There is a bespoke kitchen with Miele appliances and a built in Wolfe Sub Zero fridge/freezer, wooden flooring by Earth and Fire and a large living/dining area which leads on to a terrace with views across London.
The 40th floor has a large master bedroom with solid wood bespoke wardrobes, en-suite bathroom and floor to ceiling windows with a door to a large terrace. There is an additional bedroom with another en-suite bathroom and extensive fitted wardrobes. Floor 41 houses the gymnasium (all equipment available by separate negotiation) air conditioning and floor to ceiling doors which lead to another terrace.
The tower benefits from 24 hour concierge and is minutes from Barbican and Farringdon tube station which will open to the Elizabeth line in 2018, linking the City with the West end, home counties, Canary wharf and three of London’s five airports. This is an extraordinarily rare chance; to not only acquire some of the finest real estate London has to offer, but to own a piece of architectural history. The estate was grade II listed in 2001 to recognise this.
Parking and storage cages are available by separate negotiation, all residents benefit from use of the communal residents’ gardens.
