A 4,025 sq ft five-bedroom penthouse in St John’s Wood is available just in time for Bonfire Night.

The £6,950-a-week duplex property has panoramic views, offering residents the pick of the litter when it comes to firework displays.

The lucky inhabitants will be able to see Hampstead Heath, Primrose Hill and Hyde Park, from the comfort of their own 1,676 sq ft roof terrace, one of four terraces surrounding the apartment.

When it was announced last year that the Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks would cost £10, there was uproar. London residents were furious that the previously free display would now be a ticketed affair.

Almost a year on, it’s generally accepted that a small fee is sometimes just about acceptable for a demonstration of pyrotechnics.

But how much would you pay for the best view of all the fireworks, combined with spacious penthouse living? £7,000? That’s more than £30,000 per month.

For that money though, you get a huge amount of space in one of London’s most expensive rental areas: the 1,600 sq ft reception room alone is three times bigger than the average London flat.

“To find a high specification apartment which provides lateral living spaces and parkside views is a very rare find,” said Vic Chhabria, managing director of Rescorp Residential who are marketing the property.

“The penthouse’s unique design means that the tenant will benefit from unrivalled views this bonfire night.”

Built 25 years ago, Beverly House was one of the first purpose built luxury residential buildings in the area and boasts a 24 hour concierge and secure underground parking.

With air conditioning, real wood floors and en suites, each complete with a wet room, in every bedroom, it’s certainly one for a family of expensive taste.

On Park Road, moments from Primrose Hill and Regents Park, you’re a stone’s throw away from such famous landmarks as the former Abbey Road Studios, Lord’s Cricket Ground and London Zoo.

While nearby Primrose Hill will be packed with people taking advantage of the London-wide view on November 5, you could be enjoying it from the 1,600 sq ft reception room, warm and dry.

That said, even if you and nine friends clubbed together all your entrance fees for every fireworks display in London, you’d still be struggling to meet even one week’s rent.
