The crown jewel of the coveted Benbow House—an exclusive condominium situated within the central London SE1 postcode, in the neighborhood of Southbank—this 4,600-square-foot penthouse is currently on the market for £8.9 million (about $13.7 million).
Touting a spacious open floor plan, Penthouse at Benbow House—which features five bedrooms and two private terraces with panoramic views of the city's skyline and the River Thames—offers the ultimate in luxury living. Boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, a formal dining space (in addition to a kitchen area), and a galleried library (overlooking the main reception and a wood-paneled study), the magnificent home enjoys two private, underground parking spots, as well as an onsite, 24-hour concierge.
Benbow House is a stone's throw away from the famous New Globe Theater and the heart of London, which is easily accessible via the Southwark Bridge. Conveniently located by the Southwark Underground and London Bridge stations, the building is just a short walk from the Borough Market along with a slew of restaurants and bars, and minutes from St. Paul's Cathedral via the Millennium Bridge.
As put by Susan Cohen, the head of sales and lettings at Pastor Real Estate (which is currently managing the listing), "Its location, space, light, and parking mean that the Penthouse at Benbow House appeals to both those working in the City and the Arts. It would make a stunning home or city ’pied-a-terre,’ and is great for entertaining in all seasons.”
