Barratt London is launching five penthouse apartments in Westminster’s Great Minster House this summer. With a starting price of £4,500,000, they are some of the most luxurious homes to launch on the capital’s property market in recent months. Gary Patrick, sales director at Barratt London, gives us a preview of SW1’s prestigious new residences

Why a Great Minster House penthouse is worth the price tag…

Great Minster House is a rare opportunity to acquire a penthouse apartment in one of prestigious Westminster’s last office-to-residential conversions. Each penthouse comes with two dedicated underground parking spaces, which is an invaluable asset in a prime central London location.

The wow factor…

High ceilings, sweeping internal staircases and engineered parquet flooring add grandeur to the interiors, whilst floor-to-ceiling windows ensure it is light and bright. The penthouses are dual aspect, so residents can enjoy both morning or evening sun on one of the outside terraces that run the full-length of the apartment. However, one of the penthouses is particularly special – it has a spectacular en-suite bathroom in the building’s turret!

Who it would suit…


Great Minster House

Great Minster House would suit those who like the combination of heritage and connectivity that Westminster offers and who want to immerse themselves in the West End. Whether that’s exploring Westminster’s local gems such as St James’s Park or the farmer’s market on Pimlico Road, wandering along the River Thames and taking in some of London’s most iconic landmarks or perusing the world’s finest department stores nearby including Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Harrods.

My favourite room…

The light filled living room, which has full length glazed sliding doors at either end. It is the perfect flexible entertaining space, so guests can mill around the kitchen with its integrated Meile appliances whilst you cook or drink cocktails on the balcony whilst they await their feast. The penthouses are also equipped with an integrated multi-room audio system, which means that you can set the mood with music whilst you entertain.

Who will live here…

Great Minster House has not only attracted Londoners but buyers from all over the globe. The world-famous borough of Westminster in known for politics, but it has a rich history that creates a very special atmosphere. This coupled with its proximity to the river and a wealth of cultural, historic and gastronomic attractions, means that is it one of the most coveted residential destinations in the world.

Penthouses start at £4,500,000 and all five properties will be available for occupation in summer 2015. For more information and prices contact the marketing suite on 0844 811 4321 or visit
