As soon as you walk in, the quadruple-height, domed-ceilinged atrium testifies to its lofty ambitions, and this hotly anticipated new property in the heart of London’s luxury kernel doesn’t disappoint on further investigation. Designed by Squire & Partners, the Portland stone building complements a surrounding neighbourhood whose landmarks include The Ritz and The Wolseley, whileMartin Kemp Design is responsible for interiors in which understated luxury is punctuated with occasional flourishes such as a stunning light sculpture by Haberdashery.
Residents will also get the benefit of a 25m swimming pool, lined with colonnades and cloisters, whose tiling bears Victorian and Edwardian period designs, plus a state-of-the-art gymnasium, hydrotherapy pool, sauna and steam room. All in all it’s weapons-grade elegance without a hint of ostentation – and thus, resides at the crest of a tasteful new zeitgeist in luxury interior design.
In the communal areas such as the wellness centre and grand entrance, meanwhile, black onyx and Nettuno marbles harmonise sweetly with the Tanganika timber and dark strained oak. Lavish fabrics (including hand-woven tufted carpets in wool and silk) compete for attention with polished nickel ironmongery and art deco-inspired doors whose embossed metal detailing, upon closer inspection, gives a nod to the surrounding Mayfair streets.
Prices start at £4.25 million.
