Multi-award winning heritage developer City & Country is offering a luxurious loft apartment featuring its own private lift. The property is located at Bentley Priory, formerly a significant RAF base which served as the headquarters of fighter command for the Battle of Britain and now an exclusive collection of historic restoration properties in Stanmore, North London.
Located in The West Wing, the large 1,675 sq. ft. loft apartment offers a contemporary open plan kitchen living area, with views across 57 acres of parkland towards London. Originally constructed in 1950 as officers’ accommodation, The West Wing has been transformed with the introduction of beautiful new timber sash windows, French doors and Juliet balconies. The exterior of the building has been rendered and lime washed to perfectly compliment the adjacent Grade II Listed Mansion House.
Suzanne Aplin, Sales & Marketing Director at City & Country, comments: “The West Wing loft apartment offers the ultimate in exclusivity. It is another example of City & Country’s ability to transform a building which lacks original aesthetic value into something remarkable. The apartment is really special and you simply cannot find a similar property in the area – it is very rare to be able to live in an historic building which has its own private lift access, for added security and exclusivity.”
Innovatively designed to maximise space and light, the apartment features contemporary interior decoration, with a sleek Ballerina kitchen and ultra-modern appliances. The grand master bedroom also enjoys an en-suite with sanitary ware by Villeroy & Boch and underfloor heating.
Jo Munroe, Marketing Manager at Stannah, comments: “It’s quite unusual for Stannah to install private lifts such as this one, especially in this location where there are traditionally fewer penthouses and lofts. The lift gives the owner complete privacy and also adds a very exclusive dimension to the property.”
Liz Freeman, Interior Design Manager City & Country, comments: “The open plan living spaces lend themselves to socialising and the apartment provides an absolutely perfect platform for entertaining. The private lift access adds a real sense of exclusivity to the apartment, as well as being practical for modern day living.”
Set in gated grounds with 24 hour security, concierge and full estate management, Bentley Priory is located just a short walk from a variety of cafés and restaurants on Stanmore high street. The development benefits from the London transport network at the end of the Jubilee line, and offers easy access to the M25 and Heathrow International Airport.
The West Wing loft apartment is priced at £875,000. For more information contact selling agents Preston Bennett on 0208 954 8626 or visit: www.cityandcountry.co.uk, or call 01279 817 882.
