A royal standard of London living on the Thames

Luxury & Lifestyle 17-12-2018

Palace View offers the most luxurious aspects of London living. Taylor Wimpey Central London’s boutique scheme sits on the River Thames in Lambeth, and with just 55 apartments, each residence pushes the boundaries on prime central London property. Here, we outline the five things you need to know about this undiscovered treasure.

 

1) In the heart of London’s cultural and historical institutions

Overlooking the iconic Lambeth Palace, residents enjoy unrivalled views of one of London’s oldest buildings. The home of the Archbishop of Canterbury for over 800 years, Lambeth Palace has seen visits from Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and Pope Benedict XVI. This prestigious location means those in the area live and breathe London’s rich historical past, with the opportunity to immerse themselves in some of the world’s grandest art galleries and museums, including Tate Britain, the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Opera House.

A flourishing artistic enclave, the area itself is home to modern cultural classics, from Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery and its accompanying Pharmacy 2 restaurant, to Charles Asprey’s ‘Cabinet’ gallery and much-loved gems such as Gasworks Gallery and Beaconsfield Contemporary Art. Residents of Palace View also enjoy exclusive membership to neighbouring culture spot, The Garden Museum, partly housed in Lambeth Palace.

2) Unrivalled connections

Despite its leafy appearance, this pocket of the city enjoys exceptional access to the very best of London – from the shopping, fine dining and theatres of the West End to the luxury of the capital’s golden postcodes including Mayfair, St. James and Marylebone. Whether it’s a stroll through Burlington Arcade, a cocktail on Marylebone High Street or a shopping trip on Bond Street, Palace View is perfectly placed for the ultimate London lifestyle.

Situated along London’s major lifeline, the River Thames, Palace View is also a short walk away from the political epicentre of the city, Westminster. Waterloo and Vauxhall stations are both within easy reach, connecting residents to every corner of the capital, as well as to Gatwick and Heathrow in under an hour for easy international travel. 

 

3) Incomparable views over the City

Palace View also lives up to its name with sweeping views of the capital, all from one vantage point, whether that be on your own private balcony or the building’s private roof terrace.

These spectacular vistas span the River Thames, taking in 21st century landmarks and historic buildings from the Palace of Westminster and the London Eye along to the City of London and the Shard. Most impressive perhaps, is a little closer to home – Lambeth Palace itself. The residents’ roof terrace, which sits a top Palace View, is a favoured place to take in the panoramas, a tranquil retreat above the hustle and bustle of the city.

4) Designs that are on-trend for winter

Helping to warm the cockles of our hearts this winter, Palace View’s heritage-inspired interior and architectural designs leave us with a warm feeling of style and sophistication. The lavish and on-trend colour palette of bronze, beige, tan and rust has been a regular sight on London’s fashion catwalks.

Interiors have a harmonious and luxurious finish that nod to Lambeth’s historical past. You can find headboards fit for an English royal and a range of beautiful textures and fabrics in each apartment. The building itself reflects the surrounding architecture of Lambeth, with an impressive curved brick façade with striking yet complementary copper-style detailing.

5) Five-star service at your finger tips

This boutique scheme encapsulates the spirit of a five-star hotel, with every question and request met with the utmost care, professionalism and attention to detail. Palace View’s concierge team are on hand for any occasion or purpose, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The amenities don’t stop there. With a plush cinema room and state-of-the-art gym on site, Palace View provides a fully integrated lifestyle destination. This may be a boutique scheme, but the amenities and services on offer are top class. Whether it’s hosting friends and family in the private cinema or enjoying a glass of bubbles on the rooftop terrace to watch London’s skyline light up, Palace View is guaranteed to make an impression.
