Michael and I were dispatched to film today at Tempus Tower, just a stone's throw from Harvey Nics in Manchester, and it was definitely one of the more luxurious apartments we've filmed over the months!
We headed up to the 19th floor, I love hearing the word Penthouse :-)
The development consists of a mill conversion, which you can see in the foreground, and the tower to the left, and we were right up on the top!
The view from the apartment was stunning, you could see No1 Deansgate, the Hilton, the MEN wheel, and the rest of the city to the south, and miles and miles into the distance, all from your dining room table. Pretty impressive view, and beats my bird table. Hmmmm.
As you can see from the pics, the inside was pretty cool too; roomy, big balconies, a great party space, and we had the lovely Michaela giving us a guided tour.
The bedrooms were lovely, calm and cool, with sophisticated pale blues, creams and silvers, and a fantastic feature wall with a huge diamond above the bed. Plus the diamond bedroom had a hot tub on the balcony right outside the sliding doors. Decadent or what.
The kitchen / living / dining area was totally different, with a bold monochrome wall, black and red kitchen, leaning towards retro furniture and mirrored shelving / pillar - not a totally cohesive interiors scheme as it was so different to the bedrooms, but I'm a fuddy duddy and like my rooms to flow. Someone has snapped this one up, so they are doing something right :)
Most of the apartments have sold, just 4 penthouses left, so if you've any spare cash and fancy a gorgeous pad in the city, get yourself down there or click on http://www.tempus-apartments.com/home.htm
I liked this view of the MEN wheel, you could gaze at it whilst you are nibbling on a sophisticated city centre pad type brioche thingy for your breakfast ;-)
