Inner City Oasis

03.08.21

A stunning penthouse designed by luxury design studio, Morpheus London is on the market at Chelsea Waterfront, a new riverside development by Hutchison Property Group. Abode2 experiences the penthouses offering of a unique green oasis against the grey concrete jungle, and explores how it perfectly merges the beauty and atmosphere of outside spaces with the comfort of the inside.

Spread over 3,640 square feet, this beautiful residence is perched on the north bank of the Thames offering stunning views of the historic Lots Road Power Station and the meandering river both east and west. The penthouse is on sale for £9.18million.

An historic riverside project Chelsea Waterfront, designed by internationally renowned architect Sir Terry Farrell, overlooks a part of the River Thames which was previously inaccessible. The luxury development comprises of 10 buildings including a 37-storey tower, the tallest residential building in SW10, a 25-storey tower and the conversion of the historic Lots Road Power Station, which powered the London Underground for almost a century. The inspiration and initial concept is based around the industrial heritage surrounding the development, the idea of luxury waterside living and the view from above.

Key pieces within the penthouse, such as the dining room table, have been designed to create a talking point, taking a base reference from the industrial architecture of the iconic neighbouring Lots Road power station creating relevance to the bespoke design and also brings a focal point to the living room.

One of the unique features that make this a standout property is the upper-level garden room with an expansive outdoor terrace which overlooks The River Thames. As you walk up the steps from the main living quarters, the eye is immediately taken by the striking faux green living wall which gives the impression of a beautiful tranquil forest against the grey of the big city.

Crafted perfectly as the ideal space to enjoy entertaining outdoors and have summer drinks while reclining on swivel chairs and two ornate bespoke rope lounge beds. There is no need to go to San Tropez when you can sip cocktails from the bespoke inbuilt bar while watching boats sail by in front of you.

Acting as a multi-function leisure and entertaining space, the garden room features two rope lounge beds bespoke designed by Morpheus set against a green faux plant wall. These hanging beds flank a sweeping seating area perfect for relaxing and entertaining guests with the help of the custom-made bar. An outdoor rowing machine, overlooking the Thames, adds a sense of playfulness and is a subtle nod to the apartment’s riverside location.

The garden room embodies the concept of ‘bringing the outside in’ and is also something completely unique to the penthouse. The room is an indoor extension of the outdoor terrace that can be enjoyed all the year round, offering residents and guests an idyllic vantage point for the city’s ever- changing skyline.

Rickesh Patel, Designer Director at Morpehus said: “Hutchison Property briefed us to create something that was truly unique for the second floor that opens out onto the terrace. We felt that the room had real potential to create an indoor garden room that connects the entire apartment to the stunning views and somewhere that can be enjoyed all year round. The room was designed with two swing beds and chairs to bring in a playful atmosphere and to create a great spot for the observer to see the ever changing London sky.”

The launch of the penthouse followed the opening of the landscaped gardens at Chelsea Waterfront which are inspired by the works of the annual Chelsea Flower Show and Chelsea Physic Gardens. Acclaimed landscape practice, Randle Siddeley, combined creative flair for a classic yet contemporary landscape.

Water gardens are seamlessly connected by three stunning bridges over the creek, while green space and planting create an oasis of nature with breath-taking views along the river to Battersea and Chelsea Bridge.

Chelsea Waterfront is located in the heart of the city, less than a 5-minute walk from Imperial Wharf station for direct access to Central London, while nearby Chelsea Harbour Pier provides riverboat services on The Thames Clipper. Lots Road and the iconic Kings Road are also in close proximity for Michelin star restaurants, antique shops, boutiques and exquisite cafes.

Prices at Chelsea Waterfront start from

£1,400,000 for a two-bedroom apartment.
