Top tier without the price tag
Penthouses dubbed “affordable”, with sexy interiors and wow-factor views may appear to be a contradiction in terms. But top-of-the-tree homes in Docklands prove that such glamourous lairs are not just for the super-rich. With dramatic riverscapes and big skies, Docklands is a great place to live in a penthouse, especially when prices start at £745,750.
Manhattan Plaza is a 21-storey tower overlooking Canary Wharf, with views towards the City. By keeping the penthouses compact (just under 1,000 sq ft), developer Telford has managed to keep a lif on the price.
The main open-plan living space has a curved line of windows and a terrace, and for the next month, Telford if offering buyers’ a holiday to New York, with flights, accommodation and £10,000 of shopping and restaurant vouchers included. A one-year free subscription to bespoke concierge service Quintessentially is also being thrown in. there’s a residents’ rooftop terrace and gym too. Call 0203 918 6478.
