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.
