Like Cashmere

21.07.21

Soaring into the sky, Cashmere House, atop Aldgate’s renowned Goodman’s Fields development, is as luxurious as its name suggests. A lift from the lobby takes residents directly to the £5.5 million penthouse on priority and while visitors may find it hard to tear their eyes away from the views of the Gherkin, Shard, and other iconic buildings visible from the floor-to-ceiling windows in almost every room, they’ll find it’s more than skyline views that make this property unique.

Currently on the market with Frank Harris and Co, this three-story penthouse resides in one of London’s oldest and most interesting neighbourhoods. Ten minutes from the Tower of London with its Crown Jewels and famous ‘Bloody Tower’, Goodman’s Fields is similarly steeped in history.

Originally home to the Abbey of St Clare of Aldgate in the 1200s, the land was used by nuns in the sixteenth century as farmland. John Stow reported in a 1598 survey that, ‘Goodman’s son… let out the ground first for the grazing of horses’ and this history provided the inspiration for a series of galloping bronze horse sculptures by renowned artist Hamish Mackie in the heart of the development.

Today as people race to return to post-pandemic life, what makes Cashmere House truly special is the flexibility it offers new residents. Over the last year, many of us have come to realise that time with family and friends is what truly matters and this property helps busy executives buy back time with loved ones by offering world-class facilities all within reach from an elevator.

The building, which is more like a five-star hotel, has a world-class gym and spa-heated swimming pool onsite. Within the development, there is a bar, Curzon cinema, and a GP practice which is soon to open. For those working from home, there is also a meeting room and business lounge with super-fast WIFI available to book on-demand.

Inside, the design of the penthouse is spectacular. Owners will enjoy comfort cooling, under-floor heating, and smart technology throughout the property. A triple aspect reception room, with doors opening onto two Juliet balconies, greets visitors on entry while a grand glass balustrade and stairs lead to a palatial middle floor. This could be used as a second lounge and dining area, cinema room, or work area. It also has a kitchenette and dumbwaiter to the floor above as well as an adjacent bathroom.

Perhaps the most impressive room is the principal bedroom suite featuring a dreamy walk-in-wardrobe which looks like a boutique shop with glass-fronted, internally lit wardrobes. Full height double doors open onto a generous third private balcony with landmark views, perfect for relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning or enjoying a glass of wine at sunset. Above, the 22nd floor also features a large private terrace lined with flowers and palms with 360-degree panoramic views of London.

The cultural attractions nearby include Brick Lane, Spitalfields with its covered market and a diverse selection of shops and restaurants. Wilton’s Music Hall dating to 1859, is just a walk away and, the property is well-connected to Aldgate East and Tower Hill tube stations. For city workers, the DLR at Tower Gateway also provides easy access to Canary Wharf and City Airport.
