Description(Reference number: 79054)
If to your ears the year 2012 doesn't sound right without the prefix of London, this penthouse apartment will bring back some fond memories. Step out onto the private balcony and look left to see the Olympic Stadium where Mo Farah, Usain Bolt and Jessica Ennis-Hill all memorably snatched gold. Turn your head the other way and you'll see the London Aquatics Centre, which hosted the pool events at the games. As well as being easy on the eye — the work of architect Zaha Hadid, no less — you can go for a swim in this iconic venue if you fancy. Speaking of striking design, this home's interior deserves some plaudits, too. Dazzlingly white walls accentuate the occasional bursts of orange, while the kitchen's clean lines and sleek surfaces will please any fan of minimalism. It's not just a pretty face, though — you'll appreciate the underfloor heating if you're staying during the colder months. The local area is ripe for exploring, with the nearby Westfield shopping centre providing both retail and culinary distractions. However, one thing that we highly recommend is to hire a bike and take a tour of the Olympic Park to bring that summer of sports rushing back.
