Hollywood actor Robert De Niro has put his London flat up for sale for a cool £1.6 million.
The loft apartment, located on Green Walk in Southwark, was bought by the 74-year-old Godfather actor for £750,000 in 2001.
The luxury apartment boasts floor-to-ceiling windows offering views over the skyline of London and the surrounding area.
It includes a comfort heating/cooling system, iguzzini lighting system and solid Ipe Pereba Brazilian walnut hardwood flooring throughout.
The property comprises two double bedrooms with bespoke built-in wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and a guest bathroom.
The bathrooms are finished with Vola taps, Scola basins, a Starck WC and Zehender heated towel rails.
There is also an impressive open-plan living space with bespoke built-in bookcases. The dining area, meanwhile, comprises a four metre American walnut custom made dining table and four benches.
The open-plan kitchen consists of Siematic white lacquered units, a Smeg gas hob and electric oven, Blanco stainless steel worktops and a full length slate tiled splash back and floor.
The apartment also includes a 1,300 square foot outdoor terrace that looks out onto famous landmarks such as St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, the Shard, Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf.
It is the first time the property, in the converted Hartley’s jam factory, has been for sale on the open market, as Robert De Niro bought the property directly from developers.
Will Clark, managing director at SellMyHome.co.uk, said: “The Hartley’s Jam Factory, which dates back to the early 1900s when it was built for Sir William Hartley’s jam-making business, was redeveloped around 15 years ago.
“Since then, the area around it has undergone much change and is now a sought after location. We are thrilled to be selling the penthouse apartment which has never before been available on the open market.
“One of the most appealing characteristics of this property is its views. The views of some of London’s most iconic buildings either direct from the large roof garden of the property or from inside through the floor to ceiling windows are simply breath-taking. St Paul’s, the London Eye, the Shard, Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf are all visible from the apartment.”
For a short time the former factory was used as light-industrial and office space, before being purchased by property developers in 1999, who renovated the three existing buildings, added glass penthouses on top, and built two further blocks.
The factory chimney still stands with the word HARTLEY spelt out, and remains as one of the few signs of Bermondsey’s food manufacturing past.
The lucky owner will be close to the cafes, restaurants, boutique shops and galleries of Bermondsey Street, while Borough Market, Maltby Street market, London Bridge Station, The Shard, More London, The Thames and The City are all within walking distance.
Robert De Niro has firm ties to London, having been granted planning permission for an 83-bedroom boutique hotel in Covent Garden in 2016.
The following year, his hospitality business Nobu expanded its footprint with a new hotel and restaurant venue in Shoreditch.
DealMakerz thinks that despite its hefty price tag, the apartment will be snapped up quickly thanks to its star appeal, luxury interior and great location.
