Overview

About the property

A stunning luxury penthouse with roof terrace access from every room

This is a beautiful apartment in a modern building with a totally private wraparound roof terrace which offers amazing views of London. The apartment is incredibly light with floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors in all rooms which provide direct access onto the outside terrace. The apartment is beautifully furnished and the walls are covered in artwork from around the world. There is a very large open-plan living area with three sliding doors onto the outside terrace. There is plenty of comfortable seating and circular dining room table. The kitchen area is equipped to an exceptionally high standard with built-in microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer etc. There is Sky Digital TV and wireless internet connection throughout the apartment. There is also a built-in iPod docking station with speakers mounted in the ceiling of the living area. The two bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes and direct access to the terrace. There is a bathroom with shower and heated towel rail.

This stunning luxury penthouse apartment is based at the heart of the historic area of Limehouse and is only 3 minutes walk from the Limehouse station with direct trains to Oxford Circus (25 mins), the Tower of London/Tower Bridge (5 mins), the Olympic Park (16 mins), and London City Airport (15 mins). There is a bus stop outside the apartment block from where you can get buses to St Paul's Cathedral (15 mins) from where you can take a short walk across the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern. You can also take a bus directly to Trafalgar Square and all the attractions of the West End of London.

One of the most interesting and historic areas on the River Thames - Wapping- is only a 10 minute walk from the apartment. There are multiple historic pubs and fine restaurants in this fascinating area of the city. From Wapping it is a further 15/20 minute walk along the Thames path to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, and from there you can continue your walk to the lively area of the Southbank with its many restaurants and cultural attractions, including the Tate Modern, the Royal Festival Hall, the British Film Institute, and the National Theatre.

If you walk the other way along the Thames path from the apartment you will reach Canary Wharf after about 10 minutes with its striking modern architecture and huge shopping malls with multiplex cinemas. From there you can continue down the Isle of Dogs and walk under the river itself through a historic pedestrian tunnel to Greenwich, home to the National Maritime Museum, the Greenwich Observatory, and the Cutty Sark.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A MINIMUM 3 NIGHT STAY POLICY

About James Greenshields

I run a media production company in London and live in this apartment when in the city. I have a house in the south of France which is also available to rent - a beautiful, isolated spot in the hills above the Mediterranean.

James Greenshields purchased this apartment in 2010

Why James Greenshields chose London

This is a fantastic central location- only 3 minutes' walk from Limehouse station and yet when you are up in the penthouse, either inside the apartment or sitting outside on the huge roof terrace, you feel hidden away from the inner city life happening on the streets below.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in London. The apartment was ideal for us .It is just like the pictures. We were met by Asta, the cleander and she expained everything to us. She made sure that we were comfortable. James kept in contact with us to make sure all was fine. Would highly recommend.

Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

Our ten days over the Christmas holidays were so enjoyable due to the fact that we had the use of the Penthouse . James made sure we felt at home with the workings of appliances and systems of transportation. Absolutely loved looking out and seeing the Shard and lights of London. Would highly recommend this residence.

Very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

James gave us a thorough explanation of his home and appliances; he also included coffee and the use of his supply of condiments. The terrace is large and very nicely furnished, including many plants. There is a good view of the Shard from the terrace.

This property easily met our expectations from previous reviewers. Our 13 year old granddaughter was very pleased to stay in such a luxurious penthouse. We were delighted with our stay.
