Breakfast on the terrace -7th Heaven
With splendid distant views over the rooftops to the Post Office Tower, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, we love this light and bright seventh floor apartment, and in particular its discreet south-facing and very sunny roof terrace.
Potentially, an ideal rental investment or with it's allocated underground parking (negating the need for a residents' parking permit) a superb pied-à-terre.
Located adjacent to the Home Office in Westminster, with 24 hour porterage and underground parking, the security is hard to beat.
St James’s Park underground station is within 700m and Westminster tube is 800m. There is also the tranquil riverboat at Westminster pier only a 1km walk.
Romney House is a particularly respected building. The 24 hour porterage is a helpful feature and the building is well run with a decent sinking fund built up for any future expenditure.
There is a healthy mix of owner-occupiers and properties which are held as letting investments and pieds-à-terre, making for a vibrant international feel.
A surprising number and variety of cafés and restaurants are in the nearby streets, including a particularly good Italian restaurant called Osteria Dell' Angolo on the ground floor of the building itself, frequently used by journalists trying to discretely butter-up politicians for gossip.
