Take a look inside this luxury penthouse in Nottingham overlooking the river

Located high up above the river, lies a spacious and inviting penthouse apartment that overlooks an entire city – beautifully embellished with bold, striking interiors that encompass modern city living.

The Waterside Penthouse, part of the The Waterside Apartments development in West Bridgford enjoys expansive views of the tranquil River Trent, the historic Trent Bridge, the world-famous Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, and miles of city skyline.

Developed by Monk Estates, with interiors by Curious Design, The Waterside penthouse features three- bedrooms, open plan living space and a large balcony with spectacular views.

Boasting elevation, large windows and an impressive balcony space means that this property unapologetically allows natural light to pour in, dominating each room and playing a huge part in the overall aesthetic.

Steve Parker, director at FHP Waterside Living, said: “Everything in this property revolves around its stunning views, and the design of each room has deliberately maximised and captured as much of the natural light as possible, so your eyes are always drawn towards the outdoors when you walk in.”

“Each room within the penthouse has been thoughtfully designed, with neutral tones interspersed with bold splashes of colour, striking ornaments and wall art to finish.

 “With panoramic views across the expansive sky, it’s no surprise that the focal point of the open plan living, kitchen and dining space is the generous private balcony – beautifully framed by the large floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors.

“The view is vibrant and tranquil, and you have the peaceful river flowing beneath you, with the rest of Nottinghamshire right in front of you.

“The view becomes part of the internal space, like a giant art print across the entire wall, except it’s real and you just have to step outside onto the balcony to absorb it. You can see for miles ahead of you, as well as up and down the river.”

The open plan kitchen and dining space offers a combination of practicality and sleek style – with sharp, straight lines creating a classic look, and shades of Art Deco giving a sense of symmetry and balance.

The use of minimal colour here – white, black and grey – means this large open space, is versatile for personalisation, and ideal for family living and entertaining.

In fact, aside from the natural view outside, the only colour comes from a few choice ornaments in red – a bold, luxurious colour, it brightens up the space with a touch of personality and adds an element of cosiness.

If the living space is comparatively muted with strong, sharp lines, then the master bedroom is glammed up with sparkle, luxury and different textures.

Alongside the sprawling views, the king size bed is the superstar of this room – with its elaborate headboard and plush velvet bench.

Contrasting rugs with geometric patterns complement the wallpaper – a jazzy yet understated design which is cleverly broken up by star-shaped wall sculptures.

The colours go hand in hand – rich silky green complements charcoal grey, and muted beiges and creams add elegance and grandeur to this room which is a cosy place to rest.

“All corners of this property have been carefully thought out, and while the main living area might be the show piece, there are still ample spaces that offer a respite, a place for focused work or are a haven to retreat to,” said Steve Parker.

The penthouse’s study – ideal for home working in the current climate – mixes smart, polished furnishings with flamboyant gold accessories to provide a creative and private space. Of course, the floor to ceiling window lights up the room, and provides the perfect viewpoint outside for moments of reflection and contemplation.

The property’s en-suite really makes the most of the natural light and picturesque views. A stand-alone bathtub –the epitome of indulgence and luxury – is perfectly placed to take in the vistas.

Wherever you are in this property, you are never far away from beautiful views, offering both serenity and vibrance – with the river flowing beneath you, and the city on your doorstep – the lifestyle of The Waterside Apartments is simply unrivalled.
