“If you are looking for something that has great views, transport links (literally minutes to the station), access to shops, while possessing a layout & size for both comfortable family time or hosting friends, you will be hard pressed to find something that combines all the above.” That was our sellers, and this, is Stratosphere Tower, brought to you by Alexander Rose Estates. From 19 floors up, the City we know looks a little different. Natural light floods in through the day, while city lights decorate the skyline at night. Higher still, residents have access to an impressive top floor terrace, offering 360 panoramic views of London, that also houses the roof top gym and wifi lounge. Three lifts service the building and connect the amenities to the 24hr concierge desk on the ground floor. The advantage of being a corner property is that natural light visits all rooms, through ceiling height windows, and is especially notable in the large living space, which offers a fitted, fully intergrated kitchen, and dedicated workspace complete with juliette balcony. Views spanning the City, Canary Wharf and the o2 can be taken in from here through to both double bedrooms that share the same aspect. The 786sqft floorplan has been utilised well, and offers an abundance of storage in the hallway, which branches off into two generous bedrooms – the premier with fitted wardrobe and en suite bathroom, and a further guest bathroom. Variable underfloor heating is available in all rooms, and a notable upgrade is the addition of a smart air conditioning system, which can be set remotely. Near- future construction plans for Stratford won’t affect the views from this property, and arguably one of London’s best connected train stations, Stratford, lies within easy reach, as well as Westfield Shopping Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
