A stunning luxury development of spectacular apartments has been created at 6 Palace Gate, one of London’s top addresses. The magnificent five-storey, Grade II Listed, Victorian, limestone fronted villa the lateral penthouse with it’s roof terrace commands some of the best views in Kensington. Built by Thomas Cubitt in the 1870’s, 6 Palace Gate is an imposing and unique double fronted Portland stone property situated within 100 yards of Kensington Palace Gardens. It is unique in architectural style and design for the location.
The Penthouse is a 2,340 sq ft, exquisitely finished, three bedroom, lateral apartment, with access to a private roof terrace above that extends across much of the building. The terrace offers views of the Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park Gate, whose famous former residents include Sir Winston Churchill, sculptor and painter Sir Jacob Epstein, and novelist Virginia Woolf, which is almost immediately behind 6 Palace Gate.
The Penthouse is accessed directly via a secure lift, from which the owner steps out into a large hall and reception area, which is flooded with light from a skylight set in the ceiling of this impressive space. From here a staircase leads directly to the roof terrace, which has been beautifully designed and landscaped to provide a fantastic entertainment area with unrivalled views across Kensington.
Inside the apartment there is a large kitchen-dining area with Bulthaup units, Gaggenau appliances, and west and east facing windows; a living room with a magnificent feature gas-fired fireplace; and each of the three bedrooms has a beautiful marble clad en-suite bathroom.
John Spiers said, “Opportunities to purchase a new apartment with such a large roof terrace and panoramic views in this location, a very desirable part of Kensington and prime central London, are very rare. This, combined with 6 Palace Gate’s exceptional quality and specification, will mean this apartment will attract a lot of interest from international and UK purchasers.”
