A Luxurious Penthouse Tucked Under the Eaves

This gorgeous apartment in Belgravia is the home of an Australian couple. When they moved to London looking for a renovation project they fell in love with this penthouse, and completely reconfigured the space to create a luxurious 2 bed home. Because the property was in the eaves with sloping ceilings and lots of nooks and crannies, they turned to Woodstock Furniture to help them maximise the storage potential and the results speak for themselves.

It will come as no surprise that the kitchen is the pièce de résistance. Built in walnut and solid acrylic with trims, and with top of the range Gaancggenau appliances it is absolutely stunning.

An eating area has been created by wrapping a table around an island using end grain walnut and it is complimented by the couple's existing 1950's chairs, whilst marble worktops and a glass splashback maximise reflections and make the space light and airy.

The larder cupboard was created with integral drawers and there is a handy home desk area next to the oven.

The cosy sitting room has a feature wall of trailing blossom which has been put unexpectedly on the sloping wall.

There is even a bespoke cabinet in the corner of this room to maximise storage even more.

In the master bedroom, they installed furniture with an oak interior and walnut trim with leather panelled doors. Keeping them flush makes the room appear more spacious. Under the eaves are low level units in rosewood with concealed grip handles to open all the doors. Even the bedside cupboards contain divided drawers for socks.

The cloakroom is a small space so Woodstock designed a round basin with a curved vanity unit in rosewood veneer with a marble top and a shallow cupboard with plenty of storage.

Sliding pocket doors further maximise the space. And when the sun shines, the couple can retire to their rooftop deck to admire the views over Eaton Square.
