A stunning duplex penthouse in a luxury development in London is on sale to interested overseas investors.
Located within the market-leading 375 Kensington High Street apartment scheme by St Edward, the penthouse is priced at £12.95 million ($18.76 million) and offered by Harrods Estates.
Situated in Wolfe House, the five-bedroom penthouse totals over 4,300 sq ft in size, with over 1,200 sq ft of living and entertaining space and was created through the merging of two apartments.
Set on the north side of the development with commanding views across the UK capital, complete with a wrap-around terrace, private study area and staff quarters, the apartment offers an incredible amount of accommodation.
The turnkey interior-designed apartment has been finished to the highest specification, with no expense spared. The 11th and 12th floor apartment sits above the surrounding buildings giving superb panoramic views.
Harrods Estates Sales Manager Kensington Nicholas Shaw comments: “This apartment provides excellent accommodation of over 4,300 sq ft which is incredibly rare in a development such as this. The living area is a particular highlight, with floor-to-ceiling windows, far reaching views across London and a ceiling height in excess of 18 feet, giving the best mixture of the soaring ceilings found in older properties, but with the luxury features of a new-build apartment. The property would make a perfect London family home, pied a terre or party pad.”
375 Kensington High Street features resident amenities that would rival many world-class hotels; featuring a swimming pool, sauna and steam room, cinema; gymnasium, business suite and 24-hour Harrods Estates Asset Management concierge service. Moreover, no detail has been overlooked, with the gymnasium staffed entirely by personal trainers with daily fitness classes. All amenities within the development are for residents only.
On entering the apartment, residents and guests are greeted by an imposing entrance hall, with white marble flooring complete with statement dark wood edging. The living area benefits from expanses of glazing, flooding the room with light. A stylish lounge leads to a dining area, comfortably large enough to seat twelve people for dinner whilst the adjoining kitchen is separated by innovative glass doors allowing a true ‘chefs table’ experience. Looking over Kensington High Street is the study, complete with fitted bookcases and a commanding desk.
The large kitchen is finished in a cool grey, with lava stone worktops and Asselle cabinetry. All inbuilt appliances are by Miele, whilst an American-style Sub-Zero fridge and wine cooler dominate one wall. A separate preparation room is located behind the kitchen, next to a dedicated and well-appointed staff suite with separate access. A fifth guest bedroom is located on the opposite side of the apartment, complete with en-suite bathroom whilst a guest cloakroom completes the lower floor.
Four other bedrooms are on the upper floor of the apartment including the vast master suite, accessed through large double doors and over 850 sq ft in size, interior designed in a calming and warm burnished brass colour palette. Complete with walk in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom replete with marble and Vileroy & Bosch sanitary ware, the bathroom is fitted with an Aqualux television, large ‘rainfall’ shower and night sky-inspired Swarovski pin lighting.
All guest bedrooms have walk-in wardrobes, with ‘hidden’ en-suite bathrooms designed behind mirrored cabinetry. The upstairs of the apartment is finished in a tasteful black and white colour scheme, with well-placed mirrors and accessories to maximise the feeling of space and light.
Four underground parking spaces are also included in the sale price of the apartment.
