Picture this: you’ve finished a long, hard day at work and the sun is shining. You head to your local bar, only to find that you’re deep at the back of the queue, with just one person serving. Once you finally get your drink, you head to the beer garden and low and behold there are no free tables, leaving you standing in 30-degree heat.
A situation no one wishes to face! This is why a lot of sought-after properties in London are equipped with roof-top terraces overlooking the London skyscape. A perfect place for a Sunday BBQ, drinks, or just watching the evening sunset.
Here are five properties that give us serious rooftop envy, all currently on sale with Foxtons Estate Agents:
This spacious split-level flat offers a sweeping open plan reception, two bedrooms and an exquisite modern kitchen. However, the highlight to this property is the gloriously roomy roof terrace. With plenty of room for a dining table and chairs, sofa and even some sun loungers for hot summer days, this terrace gives off some serious Marrakesh vibes.
If you have a spare £2.5 million in the bank and you’re looking for a property with a quaint roof terrace sun trap, this Chelsea property is ideal. A three-bedroom mews house with a beautiful open-plan kitchen and ample space to entertain friends and family in the dining area. It also has a formal reception with feature timer and glass staircase, plus plenty of other gorgeous features all spread over three floors.
This bespoke, three-storey warehouse apartment offers high-end rustic interiors, combined with the perfect balance of modern touches. There is plenty of space for creativity, a mezzanine area and, of course, a stunning private roof terrace where you can pick up your favourite book and catch a tan in your own home.
Based in the heart of Shoreditch, this New York loft style two bed flat offers funky yet modern interiors, as well as two bathrooms. The terrace not only offers incredible views over this buzzing district but is the perfect location for you to host your own party.
If you’re looking for a swanky new London property around Peckham and Camberwell, this three-bedroom house is ideal. Not only does it offer high quality design and spacious accommodation over three floors, but also a private roof terrace with views that look over to the shard. The terrace is also surrounded by opaque glass, should you want to sunbathe in a bikini without the neighbours catching a glimpse.
