Cambridge House is part of Berkeley Homes’ flagship One Tower Bridge development on London’s South Bank. Due to the sought-after location and and the luxurious lifestyle that comes with it, only a few apartments remain. Raul Cimesa, Partner at Knight Frank City & East Residential Development, tells us what makes this £5.8 million home is so special
Why it’s a great buy
This is a prime, river-facing apartment within a development by industry-leading developer Berkeley Homes. It’s not just the quality of finish that you purchase, it’s the whole lifestyle package: 5-star facilities that offer a luxury Barr & Wray swimming pool, spa, state of the art gym, virtual golf, business lounge and a 24 hour Harrods concierge, coupled with a frontline riverside location in the heart of the historic South Bank.
The wow factor?
It has to be the view. From both the reception and master bedroom you have panoramic views of the River Thames, Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the City, a combination of which is arguably the most iconic and breath-taking from any development on the London market.
Who should live here?
A discerning purchaser looking for exacting standards in design and craftsmanship, but also with an appreciation for architecture and culture. Interior design of the very highest order, captivating views of iconic landmarks and World Heritage sites, and the sheer vibrancy of the South Bank all make this a desirable and exciting place to live.
Which is the best room?
A difficult choice but the master bathroom is a very special and unique room. It features Tuscan marble to the walls and floor, an elegant Alegna wooden bath and an electric glass screen which can be turned clear or opaque at the touch of a button. When clear, it provides unobscured views over the Thames towards Tower Bridge and The Tower of London which, when lit up at night, it’s quite magical.
Is this property a good investment?
The apartment presents a rare opportunity to live in a prestigious and landmark scheme by one of London’s finest developers. Its South Bank location has most recently been identified as a key hotspots for growth, according to the latest Knight Frank Research. In the year to October 2015, the South Bank has seen sales prices increase by 3.4% versus Prime Central London at 2%.
