About The Home

On being greeted by the Concierge in the spacious reception and visitors' lounge of 68 Vincent Square, the first impression is that everything is of high quality and in good order. Visitors' expectations that standards throughout the building will be the same, are not mis-placed.

The front door to this second-floor penthouse apartment leads into a 20-foot well-lit entrance hall above which there is an idyllic roof terrace accessed by way of a spiral staircase.

The main 26ft by 23ft reception room has a dramatically vaulted ceiling and Venetian Plaster walls. Consisting of a sitting area with a superb wide-board, light oak polished floor and containing a large recessed, wall-mounted TV; the room extends into a dining area with open access to a sophisticated fully fitted kitchen. There is a full range of Gaggenau appliances built into premier quality Bulthaup kitchen units. Double-glazed windows facing south and west provide views of the 13 acres of greenery that is Vincent Square. Bordered by mature London plane trees these are the private playing fields and tennis courts of Westminster School.

The master bedroom with another vaulted ceiling enjoys similar views facing south and east. It has ample walk-in closet space and both an en-suite shower room/WC and second powder room/WC. The original L-shaped second bedroom is now arranged as a fully-functioning high-spec office with two work stations.

One of the most delightful features of this intriguing property is the exquisite roof terrace reached via the spiral staircase sited beneath an ornamental, double-glazed and lead-clad turret. Measuring 21ft by 11.5ft, the terrace enjoys south-facing views over the school playing fields. It has well-tended and colourful potted plants and greenery on either side, a traditional style of canopy provides shelter with well-established evergreens and cacti growing from an ancient marble wall unit in a covered recess at the far end of the terrace.

This unique property is furnished with authentic Indian rugs, antique wardrobes, chests and tables, complimented by a myriad of wall-hangings, photographs and portraits of well-known figures from the art and film world. A fascinating collection of historical objet d'art dating back to the owners' early travels in the Far-East and India, represent the history and religion of places visited.

The only way to fully appreciate the privacy, tranquillity and seclusion of this delightful property is by arranging a personal visit strictly via the managing agents.

Other convenient features at 68 Vincent Square include secure underground parking, a large storage cage, 24/7 concierge service, and a lift.

Agent's insight

Vincent Square may not be well known to many Londoners but its unique qualities of peace and tranquillity are much appreciated by those lucky enough to be living around its boundaries.

Leaving behind the bustle of Vauxhall Bridge Road and Rochester Row, the mood changes as one enters Vincent Square. The imposing presence of mature London plane trees around the square, the well-tended cricket pitches and tennis courts and the lack of traffic tend to help slow the tempo and create a calmer environment. The sound of willow striking leather on a summer's afternoon reminds us that life and English cricket goes on regardless, wherever we may be.

Number 68 was previously the site of the Rochester Row Police Court. Built in 1904 and renowned for over a century for providing custody to some well-known public figures but usually only for a single night! It was closed and completely re-constructed as a quality residential development less than 20 years ago. As you enter, the building conveys a very positive first impression whilst also engendering a sense of peace and quiet, order and gentility.

Walking into the apartment for the first time, the privacy and tranquillity is immediately apparent. The natural light from above the hallway illuminates the wonderful collection of artworks and historically significant photographs of famous figures from the world of art, music, poetry and philosophy: Claude Monet, Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso, Pierre Bonnard, Colette and many others.

In such august company it would be difficult not to be transported into another world, leaving mundane day-to-day challenges at the front door.

This bijou home is the perfect haven in a most peaceful, yet convenient location. It is immaculately decorated, furnished and lit thereby enhancing the pleasure of returning home and relaxing, at the end of a hectic day or after a tiring journey.

The sunny and secluded roof terrace is the hidden gem among all that this property has to offer.
