Developer Berkeley Homes says the unveiling of its Goodman Penthouse in Aldgate establishes “a new benchmark in luxury high-rise living”.

But what does that mean? Well, for £5million you get a property described with a liberal sprinkling of words like exceptional, profound, luxury and lavish.

Strip those away and what lies beneath is a three-bedroom triplex with more than 3,800sq ft of space that bumps its 19th floor roof terrace against the sky.

It’s in Aldgate, so there’s not a lot to interrupt the views (you’ll even be able to see Canary Wharf) and even less stopping you getting to the Hammersmith and City and District lines at Aldgate East or the Circle and Metropolitan at Aldgate.

But forget the commute for a minute and get back in your private lift (yes really, so American) and pop back to the penthouse for a nose.

Its interior’s been created by Box 66 and features floor-to-ceiling windows, a winter garden extending out from the Poggenpohl kitchen and an open plan lounge and dining space.

The master and second bedrooms both enjoy walk-in-wardrobes with the former also benefitting from a private study and a 200sq ft terrace.

Berkeley managing director Piers Clanford said: “As the jewel in the crown at Goodman’s Fields , this property offers a new standard of luxury in this global city.

“As a milestone in the development of the scheme, the penthouse offers innovative, world-class design, access to five star facilities, far reaching views and is only moments from the thriving financial district.

“It is the epitome of city sophistication and will make for an utterly unique residence for an astute buyer.”

But the best bit, perhaps, is that anyone with cash burning a hole in their pocket can move in now.

This home is ready to go, so once the paperwork’s all done, you can kick back and enjoy the development’s wider facilities at Satin House.

These are in the same building as your new pad and include a health club, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, a cinema room, business lounge and a 24-hour concierge service.

And back to the commute? Well, if we must come back to the office with a bump, it’s 15 minutes to the Wharf via the DLR at Tower Gateway.
