A spectacular penthouse in Wapping has scooped top prize in this year’s Evening Standard New Homes Awards.

The Penthouse at Wapping Lane by Ballymore was awarded the prestigious Grand Prix Award and Best Apartment.

Perched at the top of a new 18-storey tower, the 5,000sq ft home has a circular perimeter of glass walls plus vast terraces, allowing 360-degree views of all the capital's landmarks.

On the market for £3.95 million, it is a place for an owner to show off in, having a private-lift lobby and a fabulous open-plan kitchen and living space with hand-picked designer furniture and furnishings.


Award winners were announced this afternoon at a glittering ceremony at London’s Dorchester hotel. 

Judged by Evening Standard readers as well as industry experts, the awards cover 13 categories and recognise excellence across the housing spectrum - from first-time buyer flats to family houses, from factory lofts to dazzling architect-designed homes and mansions for millionaires.

Banyan Wharf, overlooking Wenlock canal basin in Shoreditch, won the Outstanding Architectural Merit award for its "Rubik's Cube" design of jutting-out apartments, all corner units, with double- or triple-aspect views.

Crossacres, a mega-mansion on the Wentworth Estate in Surrey, took the prize for best luxury home, while best eco home was Virido - a "concept house" in Cambridge that has become a model for a development of 208 homes.
