The pandemic initially caused people to look for homes out of the city, and footfall in London significantly dropped. However, as we make our way slowly back to normality, there is an increase in people going to West End for shopping and people using public transport in and around central London to travel to work. The city has now returned to being a sought-after location, and for those wanting to buy a stunning property in the area, Berkley has released 250 City Road.
World-Renowned Architect Foster and Partners
The development is luxurious throughout and was designed by renowned architects Foster + Partners. The interiors feature a high specification, and each apartment has access to an impressive array of hotel-style amenities. Therefore, 250 City Road is the perfect choice for those needing an apartment that accommodates their busy London lifestyle.
Delivering the very best of luxury city living, 250 City Road is well-connected and is set in a bustling Zone 1 location between Islington and Clerkenwell. The exterior is also striking and impressive and boasts two magnificent towers positioned atop a podium structure. They stand at 42 and 36 storeys high and are among the tallest ever to be built by Berkley.
There are one, two and three-bedroom apartments currently available and each home has been finished with fine materials, elegant details and exquisite fixtures. The interiors also feature full-height glazing, and this has helped to maximize incoming light and offer impressive views over the London skyline from most principal rooms. Additionally, apartments boast open-plan layouts, helping to provide a seamless flow throughout the living, kitchen and dining areas. Luxury specifications include Siemens or Miele appliances, underfloor heating, and comfort cooling. Penthouses provide breath-taking panoramic views across the capital, and each benefits from a private terrace.
250 City Road also provides its residents with an array of exciting amenities, including a fitness studio, terrace, business suite, residents’ lounge, private screening room, fully-equipped spa with 20-metre pool, jacuzzi, treatment room, sauna and steam room. Additionally, there is a 24-hour concierge on site.
Spanning 1.9 acres, there is beautiful and extensive green space at 250 City Road, providing a peaceful sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Additionally, a podium terrace can be found on-site and is exclusive to residents, along with a collection of landscaped courtyards designed by Murdoch Wickham and Gillespies. For those that enjoy al fresco dining, 250 City Road’s boardwalk is the perfect spot. From here, you will be able to make your way down to a lawned area populated with sculptures, raised wildflower beds, newly planted trees, and water features.
Additionally, a variety of restaurants and cafes will occupy the ground floor of the commercial premises, and all green space will be WiFi-enabled. There will also be a four-star nhow hotel as part of the development, and this will be the first one in the UK.
The local area also provides access to some of the best restaurants in London, including Michelin-starred Cafe Gascon and established restaurant Sardine. Those that are lovers of art will enjoy the many galleries nearby, including Victoria Miro. Other great aspects of the local area include St Luke’s, home to the London Symphony Orchestra, and Ironmonger Row Baths, a restored gem with its original Turkish Bath.
Old Street station is an eight-minute walk away from 250 City Road, and from here, you can get trains to King’s Cross, London Bridge and Euston, which all take approximately six minutes. Once complete, Crossrail trains will provide residents with quick access to Bond Street from Farringdon. Crossrail will also allow international travellers to get to Heathrow Airport in just 32 minutes.
Prices for a one-bedroom apartment start from £810,000, a two-bedroom starts at £1,250,000, and a two-bedroom penthouse starts at £2,900,000. To make a private appointment or for more information, call Berkeley on 020 3925 9905 or visit www.250cityroad.co.uk.
