London - King's Cross 2-BR PenthouseUnited Kingdom / England / London
The layout of this property makes it a unique find in this side of London: the apartment has two levels, with the entryway being in the 3rd floor of the building. To maintain the historical authenticity of the building, there is no elevator in the building, and the apartment is only accessible by a few sets of stairs.
The moment guests walk in, they are welcomed by an air of security and privacy. The apartment building itself stands behind a gate, which is constantly kept locked so only building residents and guests (that's you!) can access the property. To create a sense of community, there is a shared courtyard within the property grounds. Guests, like yourself, are welcome to peruse the courtyard, especially if you wish to be closer to nature.
The first level of the apartment consists of two bedrooms and their respective bathrooms. The master bedroom, which is situated right across the main entrance, is fitted with a contemporary king-sized bed with a high quality memory foam mattress for better, more comfortable sleep. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom fitted with a toilet area and a shower.
The second bedroom, on the other hand, is fitted with a king-sized bed much like the master bedroom, ample storage areas, including a built-in wardrobe. Another bathroom, with a bathtub and shower combo, is situated right beside this bedroom, but it as accessible only from the outside corridor. This apartment is thoughtfully crafted using a mixture of modern and earthly materials but is masterfully designed to create a sophisticated home that perfectly fits a contemporary urban resident.
The top floor, or the second level, of this apartment boasts a view of the city’s skyline which provides a perfect spot for an evening aperitif. The second level is where you can find the apartment's kitchen area, dining area, and reception area rolled into one floor.
The reception, or living room area, is fitted with a cable television and a comfortable sofa bed which transforms into a king-sized bed, if needed. There is WiFi in the property, and the router is found in the living room.
The kitchen is fully-equipped with all the essentials for your convenience. From a coffee maker to high quality utensils and cutlery, the kitchen makes it possible for you to prepare huge meals for your group. There’s nothing like sitting with friends and family around the classy glass-themed dining area in this apartment and being able to peer out of the window to see the bustling streets of London below.
With a string of trendy cafes, busy bars, an active and vibrant community just below, and an efficient and seamless transport connections across the city and beyond, this apartment is rare gem in the heart of the city. With a secure gated community and a 24hr concierge, you can simply go to bed, worry-free.
In the pop culture scene, King Cross has gained worldwide popularity by virtue of the King Cross Station. For readers of Harry Potter, King's Cross Station is where Harry Potter boards the train for Hogwarts together with the Weasleys. The railway station has put up a sign for the fictional 'Platform?9 3?4' described in the books, and burying a luggage trolley half into the wall.
Nearby, Pentonville Road has several bus routes towards Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Holborn Circus, Holloway , Euston and Camden Town.
King's Cross / St. Pancras International is the best connected station in London and is approximately 170 metres walk. With six Underground lines (Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City, Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria), other parts of London and the UK can be reached by its comprehensive National Rail links, and Europe reached directly via the Eurostar. Both stations have benefited from extensive refurbishment making the station concourses destinations in themselves with various shops, restaurants and bars.
