The Height of London Living

By Chris Boyle

heron penthouse2As demand for luxury living space in London’s Square Mile rises, Heron International is launching two exceptional penthouses at The Heron, the first major residential development in the City of London for over 30 years.

With prices starting from £12 million, the penthouses offer quality, specification and views currently unrivaled in London.

Spread across the 35th and 36th floors of the development and measuring respectively 6,000 sq ft with four bedrooms and four bathrooms and 4,000 sq ft with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, both apartments have triple-aspect views across London from double-height spaces with floor-to-ceiling glass.

On the upper floor, both penthouses have an innovative ‘indoor outdoor’ room with a retractable roof, allowing residents to enjoy good weather in a sheltered environment, including throughout the winter months.

Between the 31st and 34th floors, there are 12 lateral apartments and one duplex which together make up The Penthouse Collection, where the specification is also superlative. Prices start from £3.6m.

Located between Barbican and Moorgate tube stations and just a short walk from Liverpool Street station, residents at The Heron have direct access to five of London’s 12 tube lines and two of the City’s train stations.

From the majestic St Paul’s Cathedral to the fashionable areas of Clerkenwell, Shoreditch and Spitalfields, the City blends history, trade, culture and the arts.

Adjacent to The Barbican in the cultural quarter of the City, The Heron is also home to state-of-the-art new facilities for the world-renowned Guildhall School of Music & Drama, located on the lower floors of the 36-storey tower.

A visionary development that sets new standards for residential property within London’s financial district, The Penthouse Collection at The Heron offers a rare opportunity for luxury city living, from the high specification and generous space to the first-class service and spectacular views across the London skyline.
