Suite Dreams (Are Made Of This) – Legendary Covent Garden Penthouse Apartment for sale

We like to think of ourselves as pretty Rock ‘n Roll here at TB_HQ, and perhaps justifiably so as we’ve recently been instructed to market a Covent Garden penthouse apartment for sale that is the former home of none other than ex-Eurythmic and all round rock legend Dave Stewart.

ICONIC

Its no secret that Mr. Stewart was a long term resident of the iconic penthouse at Fielding Court overlooking Seven Dials. Although he’s no longer a local, he left an indelible mark on the neighbourhood. Stories of his West End exploits with many of the movers and shakers of the London creative scene of the 1990’s and early 2000’s (many of which took place in this very apartment) have become legend. His other enduring local legacy, the landmark Hospital Club, was co-founded with Paul Allen (of Microsoft fame) in 2004.

UNIQUE

This is the first time in over 10 years the penthouse has been on the market and presents a unique opportunity for someone to acquire not-only a truly one-off ‘proper’ penthouse, but a home steeped in modern cultural history.

 

CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT

Many references are made to the ‘Covent Garden apartment’ in Stewart’s recently published memoir ‘Sweet Dreams are Made of This’ (a thoroughly enjoyable read that we wholly recommend!).

Famous faces quoted as visiting the apartment include (amongst others) George Harrison, David Bowie, Joe Strummer, Lou Reed, Damon Albarn, Sinead O’Connor, Gwen Stefani, Sam Mendes, Robin Williams, Tracy Emin, Jeff Koons, thsi list goes on…

Damien Hirst is quoted saying of the Covent Garden property “…his (Stewart’s) flat is brilliant. He did a party for me there, I love it. Insane, like Willy Wonka’s factory”.

Originally built in the 1990’s, Fielding Court is an instantly recognisable Covent Garden landmark due to its prominent position overlooking the Seven Dials.

The distinctive glazed atrium forms part of the penthouse and contains the rooftop glazed snug known affectionately as ‘the crows nest’. The snug is just perfect for taking in the wonderful views over Seven Dials or for a bit of contemplative night time star gazing.
