A stunning three-bedroom penthouse sitting on a landmark site in Camden offers potential buyers the chance to live like they're in a movie with the property bearing a striking resemblance to the Manhattan lair of Wall Street movie tycoon Gordon Gekko.

For £3.35million buyers can snap up the 2,653sq ft duplex apartment in The Glass Building on Arlington Road - which comes with an expansive rooftop terrace and sweeping views of the London skyline.

Designed by renowned award-wining Piers Gough CBE who has dubbed himself a 'movie set architect' the penthouse sits on the top floors of The Glass Building, built from 2000 to 2001, which is based on a series of interlocking bays with six storeys of curved facades created from slightly green-tinted floor-to-ceiling glass.

The glass walled Manhattan lair of Gordon Gekko, brilliantly played in 1987 and the 2010 sequel by Michael Douglas, was created by movie production designer Kristi Zea and set decorator Diane Lederman.

Kristi Zea described Gordon Gekko's lair as a 'wonderful, dramatic, understated and modern, a power and success statement for the owner' and the same could be said of the Camden penthouse.

The property has a vast reception room which echoes Gekko's Manhattan pad, combining full-height glazing in thin black steel frames with polished plaster walls and pale engineered oak flooring which creates a dramatic modern living space.

A double-height living space creates the feeling of a Manhattan loft style apartment with spectacular light-filled rooms.
