Occupying the top two floors of a striking Grade II listed building in Shad Thames, London, is an impressive 1,290 sq. ft. three-bedroom penthouse, with the unique benefit of a private roof terrace – a rare amenity in this prime patch of the River Thames. Set within The Circle, a post-modern marvel designed by iconic architect Piers Gough and opened by King Charles (then Prince of Wales), the prime duplex is available to purchase for £1.295 million through local specialists Anderson Rose.

Opened in 1989, by Charles III (Prince of Wales at the time of opening), The Circle was a modern masterpiece that kickstarted the transformation of the once bustling commercial centre of London’s shipping industry. Surrounded by late 19th century warehouses on cobbled streets, Piers Gough’s building features two contrasting design forms.

The Circle is clad in in cobalt blue glazed bricks and comprises four quadrants. The street elevations are finished with stock brick matching the surrounding warehouses, whilst a striking blue cylinder façade references storage vessels and the dye and paint works prominent in the area in the 19th century.

In the central courtyard of The Circle is a bronze statue (designed by Shirley Pace) of ‘Jacob’ a Dray Horse that pulled beer barrels from the famous Anchor Brewhouse, situated next to Tower Bridge, to the Tap Room, a public house popular with the dock and shipyard workers.

Jon Byers, Founder of Anderson Rose, commented: “The Circle is a building iconic in the local area and a popular place to live. New homes that become available don’t tend to stay on the market for very long and this penthouse is one of the crown jewels of the building. It benefits from the rare ability to own a home with a private roof terrace, which adds to the attractiveness of this home, that we’re sure will generate a lot of interest.”

Occupying the fourth floor of this superb riverside penthouse are three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a large utility and laundry room.

A stylish spiral staircase leads up to a dramatic top floor reception room with an open plan kitchen and dining area. Filled with natural light through floor-to-ceiling Crittal style windows this excellent living/entertainment space offering breath-taking panoramic views of the London skyline.

The space opens onto the large private roof terrace, which is an enviable amenity for the area, whilst the penthouse also includes a private car park space within the secure underground garage. The home also benefits from access to communal landscaped gardens and a 24-hour concierge service, whilst residents of The Circle receive a discounted membership to the private gym and spa, with swimming pool, located on the ground floor.

Well-connected the apartment is a stone’s throw from the excellent restaurants and bars of More London, whilst London Bridge (Jubilee and Northern underground and National Rail lines) is a short walk away.
