Glass-walled Wall Street-style penthouse with London views is selling for £3.35m

Homebuyers are being offered the chance to live like Wall Street movie mogul Gordon Gekko on a property inspired by the iconic Manhattan den.

A furnished three-bedroom duplex penthouse in Camden, north London, with a spacious private roof terrace and daytime concierge service, has been put on the market for £3.35m.

Buyers can purchase a 2,653-square-foot duplex apartment called the Glass Building, which offers stunning views of the London skyline.

Designed by renowned award-winning CBE Pierce Goff and self-proclaimed “Film Set Architect”, the penthouse is located on the upper floors of the glass building, which rests on a series of interlocking six-storey bays of curved facades created from a slightly green floor-to-ceiling tinted glass.

Gordon Gekko’s Manhattan Lair, which starred Michael Douglas in 1987 and the 2010 sequel, was created by film production designer Kristi Zia and interior designer Diane Lederman.

Kristi Zea’s Lair described Gordon Gekko as “awesome, dramatic, simple and modern, a statement of strength and success for the owner” and the same can be said of the Camden penthouse.

The property has a spacious reception room that echoes Gekko’s Manhattan painting, and combines full height glass in thin black steel frames with polished plaster walls and bleached oak floors creating a dramatic contemporary living space.

The double-height living space creates the feeling of a Manhattan loft apartment with beautiful, light-filled rooms.

Mark Pollack, co-founder of Aston Chase, which is marketing the property, said: “This stunning Manhattan-style penthouse in the glass building is one of the best penthouses in Camden, Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill.”

The glass building was built from 2000 to 2001 and was inspired by London gas meters with curved facades

The curved facades of the penthouse were inspired by the gas meters of London.

Postmodern architect Pierce Gough said: “The visual effect of a series of curved bays coincides with the curves of the apartment’s living spaces, a building that tries to be beautiful by being true to itself and its location.”

There is a fully fitted kitchen and dining area with Calacutta Viola marble worktops and integrated Gaggenau, Miele and Fisher & Paykel appliances.

The lower level also contains a bedroom with an en-suite shower room, as well as a laundry room and guest toilet.

The living space and the large bedrooms total approximately 2,653 square feet with a guest toilet and a laundry room also in the basement.
