Comments from the seller;
Overall, this is a unique penthouse flat, with a south west facing aspect overlooking a quiet street and park in an ideal, highly desirable Central London location. In the summer it is like being in the countryside as the tree's, visible from all windows, are in full leaf. In the winter there are views towards the Elephant and Castle, and, from the bedroom window, The Shard, which lights up in the evening. In short, the views are great.
As a penthouse, the flat is incredibly quiet, located as it is at the top of the building and directly above a quiet 'feeder' street (from Tower Bridge Road onto Tooley Street). The bedroom is exceptionally quiet given the angle of the main window. Anyone keen for peace and quiet would find the flat offers a welcome sanctuary in the heart of the city.
Yet, within 5 minutes, it is possible to dine in some of the finest restaurants and eateries in town, such as, Story the Michelin starred restaurant, and Ponte De La Tour, or for more casual dining and great service, Cantina Del Ponte and Blue Cafe. These Shad Thames restaurants all offer a discount card for local residents.
Leisure walks to the East along the River Thames on either shore side, North or South, offer up a host of delights from nature watching (water birds thrive on the Thames) to discovering hidden historical gems of London, such as, The Mayflower.
The daily commute for anyone working in the city is an easy walk across the river, into the localities around Liverpool Street Station, including Finsbury, Hoxton, Shoreditch through to Spitalfields, Cornhill, and Barbican. This walking radius extends East to Rotherhithe through to West around the South Bank close to Waterloo.
All areas of Central London are easily accessed through the excellent public transport links, tube or rail from London Bridge, or TFL's bus network. The hustle and bustle of Oxford Street is an easy 20mins direct to Bond Street by Jubilee Line from London Bridge. Whilst a short walk across Tower Bridge, provides easy access to the City, Tower Hill (District and Circle lines) and Liverpool Street stations.
Overall, this is an ideal location in a uniquely positioned penthouse flat part of a low-rise block with a south facing aspect overlooking a quiet street and park"
