This fabulous penthouse in one of London’s most desirable postcodes takes luxury living to a whole new level…
Towering over Chelsea, on the top two floors of the Chelsea Creek Tower, is the 5,400 sq ft Tower Penthouse. The exquisite five bedroom duplex has panoramic views over London, taking in the sweeping curve of the Thames as it meanders between Wandsworth and Battersea bridges. The view must be up there with the best in London.
‘We wanted to keep that airy and light feeling,’ starts Heidi Aiad of Lucarna Design, which interior designed the property. ‘We wanted to bring the outside in, so you’ll find touches of feathers and other natural elements throughout the property. There are really fine details and we use a lot of sycamore wood.’
Naturally, given the value of the property (which has not yet been disclosed, but you can bet it reaches someway north of the £880,000-£2,550,000 price bracket for Chelsea Creek’s one, two and three-bedroom apartments), the interiors resemble that of a luxury hotel. Everything is entirely bespoke and wonderfully plush. Huge mirrors reflect that amazing vista and the extensive terrace is an entertainers dream with alfresco kitchen, cocktail bar, dining area and hot tub.
If Gordon Gekko had hosted a party here in the 80s, unimaginable scenes would no doubt have unfurled. Arrests would have been made.

‘The luxury comes with materials such as soft velvets, satins and bronze trims,’ says Aiad. ‘It’s such a large space and it can be quite overwhelming when you first walk in, so it was important for us to dress the space, frame and zone the areas.
‘What is really nice is that it is two completely different environments in daytime and night time,’ explains Aiad. ‘Right now in the daytime it’s quite tranquil, but in the evening with all the lights coming on and nuances in light, it is such an entertaining space.
‘But when the fireplace is on, it is so beautiful and feels like a really toned down and zoned out family space. You can pull the screen across to create a smaller space. With a nanny room, it is expected that this would be for a family.’
There’s also a staff kitchen and the artwork has been carefully selected by a curator from Broadbent Gallery in South Kensington. Each of the five bedrooms has a different design scheme and the master bedroom sweeps the entire top floor with full height windows and access to the panoramic roof garden.
Penthouse residents also have access to the spa, state-of-the-art health and fitness centre with indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room, gym and treatment room, as well as managed car parking and 24-hour concierge.
