Penthouse Living

January 31, 2020

From exceptional panoramic views to impressive wrap-around terraces, it’s no wonder the penthouse is considered one of the most desirable properties on the market.

If you are thinking of taking the leap of luxury, this handy guide will take you through the exclusive benefits of living in a penthouse and what makes these highly regarded properties so enticing.

Panoramic views
Located on the highest floor of a building, penthouses offer unrivalled panoramic views. Thanks to their unique positioning, these homes enjoy unobstructed city, country or coastal views which can be admired through large floor to ceiling windows. Helping draw an abundance of natural light into the property, penthouses benefit from a light, airy and spacious feel.

Superb outdoor space
Spectacular windows may be one thing, but access to outdoor space is often the most alluring feature of owning a penthouse. To help you drink in those breathtaking views, a penthouse will often come with a terrace, roof deck or garden – the perfect spot for a hot tub. Usually with private access, these superior features make the ideal space for entertaining guests.

Ultimate privacy
Due to their roof-top position, living in a penthouse can offer absolute privacy. High above the streets, you can enjoy a more peaceful environment.

Prime location
Living in a penthouse means you get the best of both worlds. Often located in the heart of the city, you have access to the city’s social infrastructure and amenities with the benefit of a peaceful, tranquil environment when you return home. Though if you are lucky enough to live in a coastal penthouse, your beachfront location means you can enjoy that ‘holiday feeling’ all year round!

Energy efficiency
Often boasting a contemporary design and large floor space, many modern penthouses will come with a number of green features such as underfloor heating. More energy efficient, underfloor heating can heat a larger area at a lower temperature compared to traditional radiators, helping reduce your heating bills. In addition, due to their top floor position, warmth generated from apartments below will naturally rise and heat the penthouse. Particularly beneficial during winter months, this is a great way of saving on your heating bills at no extra cost to you.

Find your dream penthouse at Brandon Yard
Located on Bristol’s beloved harbourside, our luxurious Brandon Yard penthouses benefit from a prime waterfront setting in the heart of the city. With glorious views of the floating harbour and the city of Bristol beyond, you can drink in those far-reaching views with access to a stunning wrap-around terrace. Located in New Retort House, characterised by clear and opaque glazed panels and brickwork, this striking new building has been designed to complement the appearance and ambience of its setting.
