Winkworth takes a look at the current market of penthouse apartments in the UK and we pick five of our favourite penthouse properties.
Penthouses have long been associated with opulence, with developers often using them to demonstrate what they can offer to potential buyers who have a taste for luxury and deep pockets to match. According to CBRE penthouses can sell for a premium of 60% more compared with the rest of a development, with the average premium at 35%. Born in New York City during The Roaring Twenties, the idea of the penthouse has since evolved but is still centred on luxury and exclusivity. In London for example, a mere 2% of units in new build are classed as penthouses, making them hard to come by. Despite their rarity, you’ll be sure to always find a host of penthouses for sale through Winkworth – we take a look at some of our favourites that we currently have on the market.
