British Flair – Triptych Bankside Is London’s Newest Property Gem
Tasteful architectural embellishments and modern trappings buoyed by nearby conveniences, make Triptych Bankside a gem in London’s luxury property market.
Situated in the heart of London, by the River Thames, Triptych Bankside is a 999-year leasehold luxury residence-cum-office joint venture between Sons & Co. and JTRE. Its prime location, extensive amenities and lavish interiors are what define this ultra-luxury property, which is the architectural brainchild of Squire & Partners’—the very architects who designed One Tower Bridge, Mayfair House, and Warwick Street to name a few.
The architects were inspired by the ebb and flow of River Thames, hence, the gentle undulation of the towers’ glassy façade which projects an aura of serenity and sophistication to the development. Within its confines, Triptych Bankside accommodates two residential towers – 14 and 18 storeys respectively, yielding 169 residential units, and one low-rise office building. To dramatise a sense of exclusivity, Triptych Bankside features a 24-hour concierge service, 14-seater private cinema, games room, fully-equipped gymnasium, highly-curated retail options and cultural facilities. Of course, this chic property is only complete with a landscaped garden as an extension of London’s “Bankside Urban Forest” masterplan—a nod to River Thames’ initiative to invigorate and improve its bankside neighbourhood.
Let’s not forget that Triptych Bankside is heralded for its prime location. Within a 13-minute walking radius, one can access three London tube stations—Southwark, London Bridge and Blackfriars—and the Borough market to stock up on wholesome treats; and it is a convenient hour’s driving radius to reach the four main London airports—Heathrow, Luton, Stanstead and Gatwick. Pragmatics aside, art enthusiasts will be thrilled to have Tate Modern, The Rose Playhouse and the Shakespeare’s Globe at their doorstep. In fact, London’s shopping haven, Oxford Circus, is only a 20 minutes’ Tube ride away. It is clear that Triptych Bankside’s prime location is bent to woo future homeowners for its multitude of conveniences: cultural insights, nearby transport hubs, gastronomical finds, and retail options.
Across its 169 open-plan residential units, the architects of Triptych Bankside have been punctilious in every aspect of the design – interior, spatial elements and functionalities. In the living room, the floor-to-ceiling, dual aspect windows are optimised to capture sunlight from two directions to illuminate the inner sanctum; the resulting intersection of light fosters a sense of spaciousness and lightness. Even the doors are made of quality timbre veneer with antique brass handles. But, the pièce de résistance has to be the private terrace (available in all units) which bestows its occupants an enviable London vista.
The property’s idea of “modern luxury living” is all about sophistication; less is more. Interior-design wise, its minimalistic narrative has plenty of functionalities hidden. For example, the sleek kitchen features an immaculate light-coloured stone countertop with integrated high-end Miele appliances such as oven, flameless induction hob, downdraft extractor, full-height integrated refrigerator, dishwasher and tumble dryer. As a touch of functional elegance, all wall and base drawer units are made handle-less and equipped with soft-close capabilities. In bigger apartments, the kitchen may come with an island to cater to communal cooking and house parties.
Certainly, the designers did not treat living areas as an after-thought. Here, you’ll find full-length windows to take in the jaw-dropping panorama overseeing River Thames and the vibrant London streets below. Another alluring proposition: bedrooms come with balcony access to allow its inhabitants to uninterruptedly imbibe those glorious sunsets that embellish the London skyline. For future homeowners, every sunset will be a sight to behold: The shimmering water of the Thames reflecting the orangish hues of the evening sun; its vermillion shade cast upon majestic icons such as The Shard and the St Paul’s Cathedral.
Convenient access to en-suite bathrooms can be enjoyed by all master bedrooms. On that note, the shower room is a continuation of the organic but elegant vogue of Triptych Bankside. From the wood vanity units to the Silestone walls edged by Domus ceramic tiles, the installation of the shower room conveys a sense of calmness for relaxing bath time.
With an estimated internal area between 400 to 2710 square feet, Triptych Bankside offers eight studios from GBP 740,000, 56 one-bedrooms from GBP 930,000, 58 two-bedrooms from GBP 1,530,000, 45 three-bedrooms from GBP 2,445,000, and two exclusive four-bedroom penthouse apartments going at GBP 9,715,000. The average price per square foot cost is GBP 1,930. Despite London’s robust public transport network, Triptych Bankside accedes to the demands of the select few by providing 46 parking lots that are the exclusive prerogatives of large three-bedrooms and penthouse owners at a cost of GBP 75,000 per lot per annum. Riding on the tide of green vehicles, the lots will come with electric car charging points.
Estimated to be completed in Q4 2021 at 185 Park Street, London, SE1 9BL, this soon-to-be minted jewel by the Thames, is open to well-heeled foreign and domestic buyers for residential or investment purposes.
