Introducing The Denizen, a boutique building of 99 apartments currently rising in the City of London
Sitting in a luxury oasis of lush greenery and impressive skyscrapers, is Taylor Wimpey Central London’s latest real estate marvel, The Denizen – a unique apartment building, set in one of the city’s most desirable areas; the Financial District.
The new build, which will finish construction next year (2020), is making a mark for itself already as a prime piece of London real estate. Being in such a sought-after location, plus the bonus of an estimated population growth of 14% over the next ten years, and projections showing house prices going up by around 15% in the next five years, not only will this place be a wonderful home, it will also be a smart and astute investment.
The apartment building is right in the centre of London, so making commutes in any direction is pretty effortless, and being within walking distance of three main tube stations (Barbican, Moorgate and Farringdon), the Denizen really couldn’t get any more convenient for Londoners wanting a taste of luxury living. The apartment building even comes with its own pocket park, allowing residents to enjoy England’s abundance of natural beauty, even in the big city.
And it’s not just the location that makes the Denizen a real show stopper. In terms of the interior of the apartments, no detail has been overlooked, nor has any expense been spared in Taylor Wimpey’s pursuit of perfection. Designed by Alexander James Interiors, the exclusive 99 apartments, which range from studio to three bedrooms, are light and airy, with a distinct Scandi feel. The stone kitchen worktops, and low hanging feature lights, along with its hardwood floors, all lend to the laid back, though highly contemporary and stylish atmosphere that resides in the building.
Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure the apartments are bathed in the serene glow of natural light all year round, while giving its residents a spectacular view of the capital. Many of the apartments have balconies to enjoy a cup of tea in the mornings or a glass of whisky as the sun descends over the metropolis skyline. Whatever your reason for throwing those balcony doors open this really is an opportunity to relax and retire to your own private slice of London.
The Denizen’s aesthetics are nothing short of magnificent, but they aren’t the only reason to choose this place as your home, with practical comforts such as underfloor heating and a 24-hour concierge, these apartments are designed for the home owners’ convenience and amenability, making life in London – often chaotic and full of unnecessary hassle – a stress-free breeze. The building also comes with some exciting add-ons such as a private lounge, terrace, a home cinema, and a games room; all of which residents are free to enjoy!
Speaking about the new venture in a press release, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Central London, Alex Greaves said: “The Denizen is a very special new address. We’re creating a rare opportunity to live in London’s iconic Square Mile, with unique and innovative architecture befitting of the location and carefully crafted amenities that deliver a convenient, comfortable lifestyle.
“The City is well-established as a world-class business hub, but it’s growing lifestyle offering, including a quality mix of new restaurants, bars and retailers – from The Ned to The Royal Exchange – has put it firmly on the map as a highly desirable place to live. For those working or studying in the Square Mile, The Denizen offers beautifully-designed, contemporary apartments, all within walking distance of both work and leisure.”
With Michelin-starred restaurants, and some of the city’s best bars, pubs and cafes within walking distance, as well as the rest of London at your fingertips, this really is a hub of culture and sublime living in England’s most glamorous city. Starting from £765,000 these apartments ooze opulence and style, while being both functional and understated. That is a small price to pay to live in one of London’s most exclusive buildings, and have the entire city as your playground.
