Is there any type of housing more ‘aspirational’ than the penthouse? That top-of-the-building apartment has been considered the creme de la creme of real estate since the advent of the elevator, and still they continue to remain highly sought after.
If you’re going to indulge in penthouse living anywhere in Jersey, I know where would be the top of my list. With its unrivalled lifestyle and leisure opportunities, unparalleled views and seaside living, Castle Quay on the St Helier Waterfront is arguably considered our island’s most premium and prestigious development, so it comes at no surprise that this penthouse apartment of Millais House can be described as one of Jersey’s most iconic residences.
Ideally located within close proximity to the centre of town, an array of quality facilities on your doorstep, as well as magnificent views across the marina, penthouse residency at Castle Quay is the epitome of contemporary luxury living. Ideal for those looking to downsize, for a lock up and leave, or simply for those who wish to reep the benefits of high quality living, Apartment 625 of Millais House is the ideal property.
Millais House itself offers the prestige and sense of arrival you would expect from a property of this standard. A private residents entrance opposite the Waterfront Gardens opens into the development, before leading the way through the iconic Chart Room – a fabulous covered courtyard at the heart of Castle Quay. Towards the marina side of the development, a secure set of double doors offer separate access for the most prestigious apartments of Millais House, complete with a premium, high quality meeting area, perfect for those wishing to impress clients at a convenience.
Covering 1,351 square feet of the development’s top floor, Apartment 625 was designed with its location at the forefront of mind. Vast amounts of glass filter through copious amounts of natural light, which bounce off mirrored walls and doors, creating a bright and vivid atmosphere.
The front door opens into a wide and spacious entrance hall, with the property demonstrating undeniable wow-factor as soon as you walk through the door. Two sizeable double bedroom suites are located on either side, both with their own ensuite bathrooms, offering comfortable privacy away from the rest of the space.
It can almost be considered essential that the future residents of Apartment 625 are those who relish in entertaining friends and family. In the centre of the entrance hall, an enormous floor to ceiling wine rack can be found on the left hand wall, tastefully lit with overhead lighting, making it the centrepiece of the room. Following the entrance hall through to the main living area, you are then greeted with the cocktail bar. The pinnacle of domestic luxury, it makes the ultimate at-home hangout spot providing the ideal scene for entertaining friends or settling in after a long day.
Located on the marina side of the property, the open plan living area is divided into the living room, bar, kitchen and utility. Flowing from one room to another, the property prioritizes interior design, with each room evoking its own sense of style to distinguish the change in room, without compromising on the apartments overall design.
The kitchen is located on the right hand side of the property, with a separate utility hidden away to not distract from the sleekness of the apartment. Corian countertops and high specification Miele appliances, including an integrated coffee machine, are in place to ensure that no detail is lacking in luxury. An intricately detailed tile splashback beautifully compliments the wood effect fittings and walnut floor, giving this space warmth and character, seldom found in high end apartments such as this. A dining area in front of the kitchen takes advantage of the breathtaking views over the bay, providing the perfect space for family entertaining.
The living room is found at the other end of the space. A high impact feature wall makes the centrepiece of the room, with its unique pattern and texture aiding in defining the space and injecting character.
All three sections of the main living area share the lengthy balcony which stretches for the width of the apartment.. Unquestionably the highlight of this property, the magnificent views across the marina to Elizabeth Castle and beyond the golden sands of St Aubin’s bay are enough to take your breath away. One can only imagine how fantastic it would be to have the balcony doors of this property flung open during the warmer months, entertaining friends and family, whilst watching the sunset over a high tide.
With the adjoining penthouse apartment also on the market with Livingroom, there is great potential to extend Apartment 625 into a four+ bedroom property, creating a phenomenal 2,655 square foot space, complete with four secure underground parking spaces and concierge.
Whether as a lock up and leave, a luxurious contemporary home, or indeed as a foundation with potential to extend, Apartment 625 of Millais House is a statement property that defines coastal penthouse living.
