PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

A unique opportunity to purchase an iconic duplex penthouse with three private terraces atop this landmark building overlooking Seven Dials. The former home of Eurythmics co-founder and all-round rock legend Dave Stewart, the apartment has a rich and colourful history, having played an important role in the London creative scene of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, hosting many famous faces during this period including (amongst others) George Harrison, David Bowie, Joe Strummer, Lou Reed, Damon Albarn, Sinead O’Connor, Gwen Stefani, Tracy Emin, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Sam Mendes, Robin Williams, the list goes on…

WHAT WE LOVE
  • The apartment’s colourful history
  • The glazed ‘crows nest’ rooftop snug
  • The view over Seven Dials
  • The multiple terraces
  • The feeling of being at the centre of the universe
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • Leicester Square tube (Northern & Piccadilly lines) 320 metres*
  • Covent Garden tube (Piccadilly line) 320 metres*
  • Holborn tube (Central & Piccadilly lines) 800 metres*
  • Service Charge 2014/15 – £10,342 per annum (paid half yearly)
  • Leasehold – 125 Years from 25th March 1990, therefore approximately 98 years remaining

      • Entered on the fourth floor (with secure, key operated lift), the bespoke commission hand-made front door opens in to a reception hall affording access to the cosy dining area perfect for intimate dinner parties with an open plan galley style Leicht kitchen featuring stainless steel worktops and a mixture of high-spec Gaggenau and Neff appliances

      On this floor you’ll also find the generous master suite with walls partially upholstered in leather, a dressing area and en-suite shower room with it’s own sauna, plus doors opening on to a private south facing terrace

    There are two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a study, a guest bathroom and separate WC

    • The main living space is situated on the fifth floor, accessed via a modern staircase within the recognisable glass atrium at the front of the building, that also leads to the sixth floor ‘crows nest’, a fully glazed private snug with fantastic views over the West End and perfect for a bit of contemplative star gazing of an evening
    The 5th floor reception room was formerly a recording studio (no doubt with its own tales to tell) with access to two further terraces facing south and west, offering fantastic roof top views along Upper St Martins Lane and Monmouth Street respectively

    • Seven Dials has an interesting history of its own, originally developed by Thomas Neale in the early 1690’s with a view to attracting affluent residents, however for much of its early history it was full of gin shops and ne’er-do-wells, with a pub on every corner (only The Crown remains today) and a series of interconnecting tunnels between each, perfect for a quick escape
    The area became regarded as somewhat of a slum, even referenced by the great Charles Dickens himself

Nowadays, Seven Dials has more of a village feel much closer to Neale’s original vision The eclectic mix of cobbled streets, historic architecture, independent boutiques, theatres, restaurants, coffee shops and of course the iconic sundial give the area a unique atmosphere within London’s buzzing West End
