You enter the apartment on its lowest level, the building’s 20th floor, which holds a large open-plan reception room, the main kitchen and the three bedrooms.

“Two of the three bedrooms have glass boxes that jut out from the side of the building,” Ms. Evans said.
The primary bedroom suite features a walk-in dressing area, double doors that open to a balcony and a bathroom with two sinks, heated towel racks and a walk-in shower.
The triple-aspect reception room on the lowest floor has “three walls of windows looking out on most of London,” she said. “It’s pretty spectacular, actually.”
The reception room features doors that open to Juliet balconies, and encompasses the Poggenpohl main kitchen, which has Silestone countertops and Siemens appliances. A dumb waiter goes from the main kitchen on the 20th floor up to the entertaining area upstairs.
