This exquisite penthouse located on St Katherine's Dock within minutes walk from Tower Bridge, offers a perfect balance of contemporary features and immediate local history.
St Katherine's Dock offers the premier address in the East of City location. Including heritage that can be traced back to the Dock being used in the 11th Century, the area has been transformed from it's historic former settlement to a tranquil centre of living next to Tower Bridge with a wealth of infra-structure within it's immediate vicinity.
This particular penthouse is unique to St. Katherine's Dock. Occupying the 6th & 7th floor, the far reaching views stretch across the City of London 360 degrees, from the architectural prominence of the newly built Shard through to The Gherkin Tower. Coupled with a dominant South Westerly facing aspect, with five of the seven terraces overlooking St Katherine's Dock, the view, whether standing inside or outside the apartment is nothing short of spectacular.

The top floor comprises of a lavish reception with a stunning Burr walnut back drop (designed by Concept Interiors) spanning the rear wall of the apartment continuing down to the 6th floor next to the open glass staircase, which gives you a perception of space and solidity almost centring your attention to the middle of the property. The main reception flows through to a further second reception/dining room with solid oak wood flooring and to the other side, the kitchen. At the rear there is a guest W.C. There are five terraces on the top floor, three of which face over St Katherine's Dock, leading off the various seventh floor rooms.
The bespoke BBC kitchen has floor to ceiling windows looking directly out to St Katherine's Dock with fully retractable sliding doors.

There are full De Dietrich induction hobs, a Miele fridge, separate freezer and wine cooler, two Miele double ovens, a Miele warming draw and steam oven, a built in Miele microwave and a 40 inch built in TV.
The sixth floor of the apartment continues to delight the senses with a beautifully lit hallway leading to all rooms. The cinema room, leading through sound proofed floor to ceiling glass from the lower hallway, has been designed by Environ Audio Ltd. and features a 60" TV and a further drop down projector system with built in THX audio system.
