Description

One of Kensington’s finest apartments, this magnificent penthouse sits discreetly on top of Campden House on Sheffield Terrace in one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in the Royal Borough. Constructed in 1961 by the current owning family, and following instructions to create a “garden in the sky” for his wife, the apartment has perhaps the largest private roof terrace in Kensington with beautiful York Stone, mature trees including Twisted Willow and Apple, and landscaped flower beds full of Roses, Lavender and Salvias running the entire length of the property. Furthermore, being positioned on almost the highest point in Kensington & Chelsea affords the most incredible views over the glorious communal
gardens and across London beyond.

Arranged over the top two floors (5th & 6th) and measuring approximately 441sqm (4,743sqft), all the principal rooms enjoy a southern aspect that maximises the natural light
and outlook over the gardens and beyond. The lower level currently provides the main accommodation including a grand reception room with doors onto a balcony, a formal dining
room and a sumptuous master bedroom suite with walk-through bathroom and a dressing room / study, as well as the kitchen and secondary bedrooms. A curved staircase then takes you to the upper floor and into the informal reception room with double sliding doors giving direct access onto the phenomenal 25.8m (84’8) roof terrace, as well as a “garden room” and office space. The apartment has been a wonderful family home for 58 years and lovingly looked after but now provides the opportunity for the new owner to create one of the capital’s finest residences.

Location

Campden House was built at the end of the 19th century and is a late Victorian Architecture on the southern side of Sheffield Terrace with direct access into beautiful communal gardens, which are some of the most outstanding in Kensington.

Furthermore, Heathrow Airport is easily accessible either by the Heathrow Express Link from Paddington or via the M3/M4 motorway network which also allows convenient access to the countryside.
