The final penthouse in a converted Edwardian development in north London was revealed on Friday with a price tag of £4.3 million (US$5.6 million). The three-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse has a private rooftop garden with an infinity pool, plus far-reaching views of the city. It’s one of 11 penthouses in the landmarked mixed-used development Islington Square, nine of which sold this summer, according to Galliard Homes, the agency handling sales for the project.
“Islington Square has become a top address offering luxury homes set amongst a fantastic collection of retail and leisure amenities,” David Galman, sales director at Galliard Homes, said in a statement. “The initial launch of the penthouse collection has seen significant sales success, and we are anticipating high demand for the final penthouse available.”
The 2,173-square-foot penthouse boasts an open-living area with glass doors that lead to a private terrace, according to the listing. It also features a custom kitchen by the Italian company Valcucine. The primary suite has a floor-to-ceiling window, plus a dressing area and bathroom with a soaking tub, a marble wall and steam shower. There are two additional bedroom suites.
The roof garden is on the upper level and is accessed through a retractable glazed skylight. In addition to the pool, there is also a deck, an outdoor dining area and lawn space. Built on the site of the historic Royal Mail sorting office, Islington Square was reimagined by London-based CZWG Architects. The 170,000-square-foot development has a number of shopping, dining and entertainment options, such as the ODEON Dine & Luxe cinema and a Third Space health club.
“London is renowned for its mixed nature, and that aspect of life in this city where people can live, work and play was a fundamental part of the design behind Islington Square,” according to Jonathan Goldstein, CEO of Cain International, the real estate investment firm behind the project. Amenities for residents include 24-hour concierge service, underground parking and bicycle storage.
