Luxurious penthouse living will become a possibility in Canning Town as a £700,000 property is due to go on sale on the site of the old Rathbone Market.
The three-bedroom, split level penthouse goes on the market tomorrow situated on the top floor of the distinctive, red and purple, Vermilion building, constructed as part of a £180 million regeneration project to rejuvenate E16.
Organisers say the £695,000 property has received plenty of interest due to its “reasonable price” and “breathtaking views of east London”, taking in miles of the Docklands.
It also boasts quirky features such as an eco-garden harvesting water shed from nearby roofs, a ‘living wall’ complete with bird boxes, and a spot on one of the building’s 30 allotments put aside for residents.
Pauline Sangster, residential sales and marketing for Vermilion developers English Cities Fund, said: “Penthouse living is so highly sought after in London and our properties at Vermilion are no exception.
“We have already received a lot of interest which we believe is because of not only the breathtaking views, but due to Vermilion’s proximity to Canary Wharf.”
