Set in the iconic Birtley Towers, a landmark 1934 building often regarded as one of architect Emil Sodersen's finest achievements, this Level 4 apartment blends Art Deco features with contemporary updates to form a magnificent house-sized home.

Separate internal laundry facilities are discreetly concealed adjacent to the bathroom. Windows on three sides of the apartment provide a treehouse effect with excellent cross-flow ventilation.
