This opulent London property has an eyrie-like location in the clock tower of the St Pancras Chambers building, and it features Victorian and reclaimed features.
The two-bedroom King’s Cross flat– on sale for £4.6m with UK Sotheby’s International Realty – is part of the iconic red-brick former hotel adjoining St Pancras railway station, designed in gothic revival style in 1873 by George Gilbert Scott.
High-ceilinged rooms have tall windows and jewellery-box interiors; the highlight is its show-stopping reception which sits under a regal-like painted ceiling with red, gold and pale blue hues. Full-length quatre and trefoil mullions, including three within an oriel window, illuminate the space.
Double-height bedrooms feature mezzanines, and one has a copper rolltop bath.
The owners of the London apartment have added a contemporary richness through global vintage furnishings mixed in with patterned textiles, emerald glazed bathroom tiles, a colourful, salvaged timber kitchen, and intricate stained-glass internal doors.
