PENTHOUSE LUXURY. Being one of only two apartments located on the top (seventh) floor of this stunning landmark development and for all intent and purpose detached both to the side and above from any other apartment.

The apartment enjoys a shared lift serving all other floors and the rather magnificent communal facilities of Horizons. The apartment has an allocated car space which is included in the asking price. Early viewing is strongly recommended.
