A Posh and Unique London Pad with Incredible Tower Bridge Views Seeks $12M
Located right on the banks of the River Thames, this 3,700-square-foot London abode is appropriately named The Riverside Apartment. While it’s not quite the Tower of London, which is just across the river, it does have some noticeable similarities. A private bridge allows access into the $12 million apartment, a fortress of luxury to be sure. A collector can securely lock up treasured wine bottles here and the hidden gem also looks out directly to Tower Bridge for one of the most classic London views.
Once you cross the private bridge to the front door, a dramatic entrance welcomes you. Up the stairs, a reception room fit with an onyx bar, a fireplace, and doorways that open to two lovely balconies facing Tower Bridge awaits. Looking like it belongs in a fine London hotel or restaurant, the circular dining room sits below custom stained glass windows by renowned Chiswick Stain Glass, also known for their work at The Ivy. Steps away on the second level, the pristine kitchen outfitted with Gaggenau appliances is equally stylish.
Paying homage to the history of London’s wine trade, the wine cellar is another top highlight. It’s all custom and temperature-controlled, plus can be remotely locked to keep extensive collections safe. A statement piece in its own right, who could resist entertaining in a space like this?
For nights of relaxation, the high-tech movie theater with room for 10 is another ideal retreat. In total, the apartment holds three bedrooms and five bathrooms. So, when London is calling, a new owner can bring guests along, too.
Adding another charming element, it’s set in Anchor Brewhouse, a Grade II building that long operated as a brewery. Gideon Lang-Laddie of The Agency shares the listing with Ben Sibbons and Chloe Luxon of Savills.
