Fancy hosting an exclusive New Year’s Eve rooftop party?

Meet the couple planning just that after buying this luxury pad overlooking the London Eye

Imagine having private access to a roof terrace with one of the most spectacular views of London‘s New Year’s Eve fireworks display – well, that’s the reality for one couple who have just bought a luxury flat on the South Bank.

James Coffey and his wife Shulin bought the new flat at Belvedere Gardens off-plan in 2017, securing them a spectacular view of the River Thames, Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.

Building will be officially completed next week, when the couple will be able to move in.

They will be able to enjoy one of the best views of the London fireworks display – held annually on New Year’s Eve – and all from the comfort and warmth of their own home, behind triple-glazed sliding floor to ceiling glass doors on their private balcony.

MailOnline Property was the first to step inside one of the completed flats on the South Bank, ahead of the new owners being able to move in next week.

The interiors were designed by Goddard Littlefair, and include open-plan living areas with coffee maker and wine cooler included in the kitchen.

There are also Miele appliances, touch control cabinets and polished stone worktops in the kitchen.

Mr Coffey said: 'For us this is a lifestyle choice. Inside we have a beautifully designed apartment with concierge services and a private spa and fitness centre.

'The first floor residents' lounge with an outdoor seating area overlooking Jubilee Gardens will be an amazing venue to relax and entertain friends and colleagues. We're already planning a New Year's party on the residents' balcony, with the river and London Eye in the backdrop.'

The couple bought a one-bedroom flat at the Belvedere Gardens development, which has its own entrance to Waterloo underground station.

It was possible to buy a one-bedroom flat off-plan in 2015 for £905,000. However, just 21 flats out of a total of 97 are still available to buy today – and all of those are either two-bedroom or three-bedroom flats.

Prices on those flats now available in the development start from £2,145,000. The development includes a fitness centre, spa and swimming pool in the basement, along with several shops and cafés, including Marks & Spencer and Gail’s Bakery.
