3 Bedroom Penthouse For Sale


Believed to date back to the early 1800s, Tower Court has a rich history behind it. The saying 'if the walls could talk' could not be more apt. You can only imagine the stories that the walls could tell here. From its beginnings as a workhouse some 180 years ago, Tower Court has taken on several guises, being converted to a hospital in 1948 and to private housing in 1999. This sought after address has certainly seen some changes but it's managed to retain most of its character, displaying exposed beams , with perhaps one of the most distinguishable features being the stone mullion windows.

The penthouse, Number 15, is the focal point of Tower Court, setting the scene for a city centre lifestyle in historic Ely.

Through its secured access door, stairs will lead you to the penthouse.

The apartment is centred around the open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area. With high vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams, and breathtaking views of the Cathedral, this space has been designed for those who love to entertain and socialise.

On the lower level you will find the three bedrooms and the family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are double in size with the principal bedroom benefiting from its own en-suite shower room. The beauty of this property is its versatility, with the third bedroom ideal as a superb home office for those who need to work from home.

The outside communal space is well maintained and looked after. Enclosed and secluded, this outside space make this unique building feel even more special. The apartment also comes with one allocated parking space.

Those who crave a city lifestyle way of living this penthouse will offer it all. With the river a short stroll away there are numerous pubs and restaurants on the doorstep, as well as easy access to the train line that will take you directly to Cambridge and London within the hour - this is a must view property.

ELY England's second smallest city, Ely boasts green spaces, a charming waterfront and traditional streets to explore. The magnificent Cathedral dominates the skyline for miles around and is one of England's largest and most beautiful Cathedrals. Known locally as the 'Ship of the Fens' it is famous for its unique Octagon tower, and is home to the only national museum dedicated to Stained Glass.

Enjoy sampling the delights of the many cafes and restaurants, visit the art galleries around the waterfront, or simply take time out to relax and watch the river boats pass by. Visit the former home of Oliver Cromwell and his family, perhaps Ely's most famous historical resident, or discover the city's history at the recently redeveloped Ely Museum.

There's a plethora of independent shops as well as some high street staples and various weekly markets.
Further afield, the unique unspoilt countryside of East Cambridgeshire is there to be explored. Reclaimed from their natural marsh state the peat-black Fens are criss-crossed by rivers and drainage channels and blessed by glorious sunsets, big skies and dramatic skylines. The towns and villages are delightfully rural, many with riverside locations and their own independent shops and public houses.

The district is a close neighbour to Newmarket, the home of horseracing, and the world famous academic centre, Cambridge is close by with its stunning architecture and majestic college buildings.
