2 Bedroom Flat

  • 1549 Sq ft - 144 Sq m
  • Penthouse Apartment
  • Grade II Listed Building
  • Spectacular Terrace

A uniquely exceptional penthouse residence situated in the heart of the city's financial district.

Located on the top floor of a charming Grade II listed building, directly across from the Bank of England, this dwelling stands out as an exemplary representation of Venetian Gothic revival architecture.

Secluded, unobtrusive, and secure, it stands as one of the most remarkable apartments the city has to offer, nestled within one of the most iconic structures, complete with its own private rooftop terrace.

Accessed through a key-operated lift, the penthouse is a captivating space with ample natural light from all directions and a well-thought-out layout.

The interior includes an enchanting reception room featuring ten sash windows, intelligently divided into living, dining, and study areas, along with a recessed kitchen equipped with AEG and Siemens appliances.

The accommodation further encompasses a primary bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom, a second double bedroom with built-in wardrobes, a guest shower room, and an additional cloakroom. A custom staircase leads from the reception room to a sunroom with direct access to a delightful roof terrace overlooking the Bank of England and St Margaret's Church.

Notable features of the apartment include a "Bose" lifestyle audio system, heating and cooling systems, bespoke joinery, direct lift access, and CAT5 cabling.

Designed by the renowned RIBA architect George Somers Clarke in the late 1860s, who also contributed to the designs for the Palace of Westminster, the building has a rich history. Originally serving as the head office for the General Credit and Discount Company, it later housed brokers and merchants such as Speyer Brothers, The National Bank of Australia, and stockbrokers Laurie Milbank & Co. It even functioned as a private dining club for the Overseas Bankers' Club. Converted into luxury apartments in the new millennium, the building underwent restoration to honor its heritage, blending thoughtful architecture with contemporary finishes to create an ideal space for city living.

Lothbury's strategic location, directly opposite the Bank of England in the heart of the City's financial district, adds to its appeal. With proximity to Bank Station (Central, Northern, Waterloo and City, and DLR lines) and Liverpool Street Station (Circle, Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan, and Mainline access), the convenience is unparalleled.

The cityscape offers exceptional shopping experiences, with One New Change on Cheapside and boutique options at The Royal Exchange featuring luxury brands such as Hermes, Fortnum and Mason, Tiffany and Co, Watches of Switzerland, and Aspinal of London.

Situated in close proximity to London landmarks like St Paul's Cathedral, the River Thames, the Tower of London, and The Shard, as well as being at the epicenter of the banking and legal districts, make this penthouse a truly extraordinary residence.
