The sky’s the limit: 4 London penthouses for sale

In the heart of London, where the skyline is as dynamic as its history, the allure of penthouse living is unmatched, particularly when it comes to those that grace the banks of the River Thames.

Penthouses in particular represent the apex of urban living. The panoramic views, abundant natural light, and privacy they afford are just the beginning. In London, a city where space is at a premium, these top-floor residences offer a rare commodity: a sense of openness amidst a bustling metropolis.

Are you on the lookout for a new home that stands out from the ordinary? We’ve curated a collection of penthouses currently for sale through Cluttons in SE1 and SE16, each offering a unique perspective on one of the world’s most iconic cities.

SE1: A tapestry of culture and convenience

SE1 is an area steeped in culture and history, offering a blend of the traditional and the contemporary. Here, landmarks like the Shard and the Tate Modern stand alongside remnants of Victorian London, creating a vibrant tapestry that is both visually and culturally rich.

The iconic Butlers Wharf Building is a prime example of this blend, with its historical facades and modern interiors. Southwark Bridge Road and The Triangle are nestled within this eclectic district, offering residents immediate access to the arts, fine dining, and green spaces such as the Jubilee Gardens.

The property boasts 1,533 sq ft of beautifully presented living space. On the upper floor you are welcomed by an oversized open plan kitchen and reception room with striking floor-to-ceiling windows that draw plenty of natural sunlight. This along with the breath-taking views of the Shard and City skyline help blur the line between outdoors and indoors.

SE16: A hidden gem with expansive views

SE16, though ever so slightly more removed, is a hidden gem that offers a quieter side of London life without sacrificing convenience or views. Globe Wharf, for instance, allows residents to enjoy expansive vistas of the Thames, a daily luxury that few can claim.

This area is characterised by its unique blend of old docksides, modern developments, and open green spaces like Southwark Park, creating a balanced environment that caters to both the need for peace and the desire for urban amenities.
