Harrods Estates has announced the sale of a stunning ‘party pad’ with 2,000 sq ft of stylish entertaining and living space at Queen’s Gate, SW7.
Located in a prime central London location, this fabulous first-floor one bedroom apartment is on the market for £3.75m and sits in the show of Hyde Park and the Royal Albert Hall. Features include a spectacularly grand drawing room, a further reception room and a substantial en-suite bedroom, quietly situated at the rear of the home.
This prestigious block is just one of several on Queen’s Gate which were originally constructed as large houses. Former owners of the property include Vangelis Papathanassiou, a Greek electronic composer, credited for the musical score Chariots of Fire for the British film of the same name. He owned this property and several others in the same building. Members of the Dutch royal family and various diplomats currently reside here, confirming its status as one of the most sought-after London residential addresses.
The elaborate, 45 ft long drawing room is the showpiece of the house with its abundance of architectural features and period details such as the ornate ceilings, Romanesque pillars and two beautiful marble fireplaces with ironwork inserts. Four French windows open onto a fully-restored, west-facing balcony with black and white Victorian tiles overlooking Queen’s Gate. The building retains its original staircase and balustrade.
Shirley Humphrey, Director at Harrods Estates, comments: “This is a spacious first floor apartment in a remarkable period building near Kensington Gardens. Its spectacular grand reception room provides an ideal space for entertaining guests with its high ceilings and full-length windows opening onto the balcony.” “The property is ideally situated for Hyde Park, Kensington and Knightsbridge and would make a unique residence, particularly for someone who wants to make the most of all that London has to offer, with The Royal Albert Hall and London’s top museums practically at your doorstep.”
Queen’s Gate is situated at the heart of the capital, with London’s trio of celebrated museums, the Natural History, Science and Victoria and Albert Museums, located just around the corner in South Kensington. The Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park and other well known sights are within a minutes’ reach, with some of the capital’s most fashionable shopping, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols just a stroll away.
There are a number of prestigious schools, universities and colleges located within a mile of the development, such as Glendower Prep School, Queen’s Gate School, The Royal College of Music and Imperial College London.
The one bedroom apartment is priced at £3,750,000.
