Situated between Islington and Clerkenwell, just eight minutes from Old Street station, 250 City Road is Berkeley’s flagship development. Designed by internationally renowned architects Foster + Partners, it comprises a magnificent duo of towers positioned atop a podium structure.
Set across floors 34, 35 and 36 of Valencia Tower – one of its two landmark towers – The Penthouse Collection combines high-spec stylish interiors by Studio 9 with breathtaking panoramic views over the capital.
Ranging from 1,609 sq ft to 2,950 sq ft, there are three two-bedroom and two three-bedroom homes available, three of which are triplexes. Each home benefits from a private terrace, the largest spanning a vast 837 sq ft.
Every home enjoys an individually designed, bespoke layout with full-height glazing maximising incoming sunlight and the impressive skyscraper views.
The open-plan design provides a seamless flow from the kitchen to the dining and living areas; two of the homes also benefit from a separate breakfast/dining area, offering the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee. The sleek kitchens feature stylish stone work surfaces, sleek cabinetry and state-of-the-art Miele appliances, including wine coolers.
Each of the spacious bedroom suites has an ensuite bathroom or shower room as well as copious floor-to-ceiling wardrobes – two of the homes include large walk-in dressing rooms.
An array of exceptional amenities are also on offer to residents. There’s a fitness studio and terrace, along with a business suite, residents’ lounge and private screening room. There is also a fully equipped spa, complete with a 20-metre pool, Jacuzzi, treatment room, sauna and steam room.
Practicalities are taken care of with a 24-hour concierge on hand to help busy residents.
The extensive green space at 250 City Road – 1.9 acres in all – provides a peaceful sanctuary. An attractive boardwalk – which will facilitate al fresco dining – will lead down to a lawned area populated with sculptures, raised wildflower beds, newly planted trees and water features. ■
