Spectacular Duplex Penthouse with Unrivalled Roof Terrace
An exquisite four-bedroom duplex penthouse, thoughtfully crafted by the globally acclaimed architect, Sir David Chipperfield, where elegance and convenience converge in the heart of Clerkenwell. Spanning approximately 2,635 sq ft internally and an additional 1,943 sq ft externally, this luxurious home gracefully occupies the third and fourth floors, boasting iconic views, delightful roof terraces, secure parking for two vehicles, and an abundance of natural light.
Inspired by Mies van der Rohe's iconic Farnsworth House, the apartment exudes a tasteful Miesian influence. The upper floor unveils an almost 80ft Miesian pavilion, thoughtfully divided into distinct living spaces. Unparalleled ceiling heights and triple aspect floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the interiors in an abundance of natural light, beautifully blending indoor and outdoor living. The top floor entrance leads into a welcoming hall with a guest W/C. The exceptionally spacious and airy living room features a cosy fireplace and seamlessly flows into an open dining room and custom-built kitchen. Adjacent to this space lies a sizable principal bedroom, offering a newly finished ensuite bathroom with skylights, a walk-in wardrobe and a private balcony. The added flexibility of two sliding pocket doors allows the principal bedroom to effortlessly transform into a second reception room if required. A windowed stairway leads you to the lower floor, where three well-proportioned double bedrooms with built-in storage await, complemented by two bathrooms (one en-suite), a separate utility room, and a vast storage area tucked beneath the stairs.
The fourth floor terrace grants access to an external staircase, connecting you to the expansive top floor roof terrace, treating you to breath-taking panoramic views of the iconic London skyline. Experience London's grandeur, from the City of London in the east to the majestic St Paul's Cathedral in the south, and the iconic BT Tower in the west. Outdoor space of this magnitude is a rarity in such a central location.
This exceptional penthouse forms part of a mid-century modern warehouse conversion building, that underwent a complete redesign by Sir David Chipperfield in 2000. The penthouse is distinguished as the largest residence and only duplex within the building.
Sir David Chipperfield's impressive architectural background includes experiences at distinguished practices like Douglas Stephen, Richard Rogers, and Norman Foster before establishing his eponymous firm in 1984. Today, the practice operates offices in London, Berlin, and Milan, boasting remarkable achievements, such as winning the prestigious Stirling Prize in 2007 for the Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach, Germany, being shortlisted for the America's Cup Building in Valencia the same year, and winning the 2021 RIBA London Award for the masterful expansion of the Royal Academy of Art in London. In 2023, Chipperfield was the recipient of the Pritzker Prize, the world's most prestigeous architectural award. In recognition of his invaluable contributions to architecture, Chipperfield was appointed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 2004, and a Companion of the Order of Companions of Honour (CH) in 2020.
