Just released onto the market
for £17.5 million, The Penthouse at Belvedere Gardens, which has

Littlefair, is one of London’s most exclusive residences.
Littlefair is responsible
for creating the design-led interior schemes for all 97 apartments, communal
areas and state of the art spa facilities at Belvedere Gardens. The
spirit of the South Bank was an irresistible inspiration for the scheme, which

the festival embodied throughout the building’s interior and architecture

terrace and a private balcony.
Benefitting from two separate
entrances, accessed via a private corridor, The Penthouse at Belvedere
Gardens provides visitors with immediate, show-stopping views as they enter
the open-plan living/dining area, where they can soak in the incredible sight
of the London skyline through floor-to-ceiling triple-glazed windows.

wine cooler, polished marble worktops and a breakfast bar. Due to its position
in the building, it provides a direct view of Big Ben through a full-height
glazed sliding door – leading onto a private terrace. With this in mind, the
arrangement of the kitchen inspired Goddard Littlefair to dress the space

and lifestyle can be seen through personal touches throughout the home that
harmonise together to create an enchanting apartment that represents the best
of London and provides endless spaces to relax, work and entertain.”
