Londoners with deep pockets are increasingly choosing to “live in the sky” as a new wave of residential towers with winter gardens and tiered terraces rises above the streets.

The Tower, at One Tower Bridge, is a slender skyscraper where the top four floors form a single property, and the highest level is a roofless glass-walled space with a plunge pool and outdoor kitchen.

Unsurprisingly the price is sky-high too, at £8.5million. Call Berkeley Homes on 020 7871 0011. Spectacular multi-storey penthouses are also being created in some of the capital’s historic buildings. 

A triplex penthouse with soaring 44ft-high ceilings, triple-height windows and exposed roof rafters has been created at listed St Pancras Chambers, the Victorian Gothic masterpiece by architect Sir George Gilbert Scott that fronts Euston Road.

St Pancras Chambers:  the penthouse is priced £6.25 million

Room service is provided by the five-star Marriott hotel within the building, and the penthouse is priced £6.25 million. Call 020 7262 2226.
