Unique duplex apartment in an iconic Grade II* listed building in the heart of Cardiff Bay

About this property

  • The communal entrance give a feeling of luxury and grandeur with ornate mouldings and mahogany panelling with a refurbished period lift with exposed workings providing a centrepiece.

    This ground floor apartment is an example of a modern duplex with high specification fittings throughout. It features underfloor heating and tiled flooring. Entered into a spacious hall with a modern spiral staircase in chrome and Perspex taking you to the first floor.

    The open plan living/dining/kitchen features a dramatic double height ceiling with French doors opening onto a private paved terrace with ample seating for al fresco dining and the luxury of a hot tub.

    The kitchen has a combination of wall and base units with granite worktops. Integrated appliances include an oven, hob with extractor over, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and sink and drainer.

    There is a large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a luxury bathroom with Porcelanosa fittings to complete the downstairs accommodation.

    To the first floor is a generous landing leading to the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes. The bathroom is finished beautifully, again with Porcelanosa fittings. Finally, there is a dressing room in the mezzanine, overlooking the living area with a range of fitted wardrobes. There is potential for this to be converted into a third bedroom.

    Additional benefits include a concierge on-site, storage cage in the lower ground floor as well as allocated, gated parking.

One of my favourite buildings in Cardiff, the wealth of history and original features are breath-taking. This apartment, being a duplex is thoroughly unique and beautifully finished.
