Traditional houses and split-level apartments are a thing of the past as high-rise lateral living becomes the latest trend. Award-winning developer Dandara has added two levels to the iconic Image tower in Hemel Hempstead to create a stunning collection of homes with views spanning across the region. Kevin Harper, 33, was one of the first to purchase a penthouse at the development having realised the long-term potential of his investment.

Formerly the historic Kodak Tower, the building is a well-known landmark in the area and is Hemel Hempsteads tallest building comprising 254 one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses as will also feature landscaped gardens and a range of shops and office accommodation. With breathtaking panoramic views, plenty of living space and high-specification interiors, the selection of stunning penthouses offers arguably the finest lifestyle apartments in the area.

Kevin will be moving into his penthouse at the end of the year and comments: I initially bought the penthouse at Image as a short-term investment but I soon realised that I wanted to live in it too; I have lived in Hemel Hempstead my whole life and this tower is iconic, there is no high-rise like this for miles around and the views from my penthouse on the 20th floor are going to be incredible.

This will be a change of scene for Kevin, who will be moving out of a semi-detached house into a two-bedroom penthouse. However, he is extremely pleased with the amount of living space on offer - his terrace is the size of many one-bedroom apartments in the area: I cannot wait to use the outside space; I have a 646 sq ft terrace and when the summer arrives it is going to be the perfect entertainment space. Part of the terrace will be my own private garden but I will also be having barbeques for my family and friends who have all told me they want to come and see the penthouse when it is complete.

The penthouses benefit from unique living spaces, high quality specification and compliment the trendy exterior of the building. Included is a beautifully crafted kitchen and bathrooms incorporating the finest materials and appliances. High gloss doors and laminate work surfaces compliment the chrome worktops in the kitchen and high quality Hansgrohe chrome fittings combine with the finest Italian glass tiling in the bathrooms and en suites.

Michelle Harris, UK South Sales Director for Dandara, comments: Luxury lateral penthouses like these are a rare commodity in the area and purchasers are keen to take advantage of this unique opportunity. The spacious indoor and outside space has proven to be just one of the many attractive features of the penthouses here and they have proven to be of interest to owner-occupiers and investors alike.

All apartments at Image benefit from luxury interiors and high specification finishes in all bathrooms and living areas. Stylish downlighters in the bathrooms combine with white contemporary sanitaryware and Hansgrohe fitting and in the kitchens and living areas high specification appliances and spacious interiors promote natural light throughout the apartments.

Video door entry systems, passenger lifts to all floors and a concierge service demonstrates the modern lifestyle on offer and centred round a communal landscaped piazza, a newly constructed footbridge will link the piazza to the brand new Riverside shopping centre.

Centrally located, Image is at the heart of Hemel Hempstead, located a few minutes from Riverside shopping centre and Hemel Hempstead railway station, where regular trains to London Euston take under 30 minutes. Residents at Image will also benefit from a car club and a peak hours bus service to Hemel Hempstead station for the exclusive use of Images residents.

One-bedroom apartments start from 165,000 and two-bedroom apartments from 235,000. To find out more information contact the Sales & Marketing Suite on Tel: 01442 838 120 or visit
