A penthouse apartment located in the crown of one of London’s most admired architectural wonders is for sale - with an asking price of £11.5 ($15.64) million.
Hidden in, arguably, the most recognized gothic building in the world - St Pancras Chambers - the entirety of this 6000 sqft apartment is an ornate maze of urban grandeur and elegant home decor furnishings.
The property is complete with a statement dangling chandelier in the entrance hall and a view that frames the capital’s skyline from your bedroom.
The exterior’s splendor is equally mirrored around the penthouse's interior - most notably through its original Victorian beams that are an authentic reminder of the property’s history as a water tower.
The beams are a staple feature of the vast open-plan living space, that includes a dining area and a private home bar where you can host the house party of the decade.
Despite towering above the city, the property is oozing with rich elements of a rural country house, boasting high ceilings, a spacious master bedroom, and two guest bedroom suites.
There are also two kitchens, a home office, and a rooftop area, which showcases London’s skyscrapers in all their glittering glory.

Spanning from the fifth to the seventh floor of Sir George Gilbert Scott’s masterpiece, the apartment is accessed via a private elevator on the sixth floor.
However, the amenities of this mid-nineteenth century icon are not limited to the penthouse, as St. Pancras Chambers also boasts a globally renowned hotel, a spa, and a private members club - in case your stylish home bar isn’t already sufficient.
St Pancras is also, perhaps most famously, known as the Gateway to Europe - with frequent train services to Paris in just over two hours - meaning it really is possible to enjoy a morning coffee and croissant by the Seine after a night of partying in London Town.
We volunteer to take care of this apartment if nobody snaps it up soon. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Agent Jamie Marshall (opens in new tab) of Nest Seekers International has described the listing as a ‘once in a generation opportunity, before advertising the property as a bespoke home’ in a ‘world-class location’.
A world-class location, with access to the world. We could not love this any more than we do.
