Dive Into Tranquility… Cleveland Square, London W2


As soon as one dips a toe into this luxury four-bedroom, five-bathroom apartment on Cleveland Square in leafy Bayswater, this exceptional home reveals some singular features which sets it apart from its neighbouring stucco-fronted properties. Boasting a xxmetre indoor swimming pool, a generous family/media room and a private vault; this is a property which is set to make waves.

It is easy to understand why the property marketed at a guide price of £ 5,750,000 and offering a footprint of 3,898 sq ft is expected to garner a lot of interest. Set across a lower ground, ground and first floors, the apartment feels like a spacious family home with room for each family member’s interests.

Deserving of extra attention is the property’s 7.5m heated indoor pool – which enjoys a shower room and steam room besides the sea of tiled stone encasing the pool, of whichcan be used as a ‘jet pool’ to create a current, make laps more challenging. This stand-out feature is an exquisite way to start the day with a refreshing splash or to wash off the day’s toils. In fact, Sport Englandcredits swimming as one of the best all-round activities: it keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body. It also builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness as well as helps to maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart and lungs.

Indeed, central London has experienced a revival in indoor pools in recent years; the private members club, The Nedopened its subterranean marble-clad 20 metre indoor pool in 2017, whilst a short distance from Cleveland Gardens is the hidden gem that is Porchester Spa– a sumptuous barrel vaulted tub with accompanying Turkish baths. Furtherstill the colonnaded opulence of the Royal Automobile Club'sPall Mall swimming pool is rumoured to be where the Queen learned to swim.

Take a step outside of the property and potential residents will see that Cleveland Square dates back to 1855 and stands as a fine example of one of London’s iconic garden squares. Today, the present garden has play areas, bedding, a privet heddge, and yet for those brave enough, the property is a short distance from Hyde Park’s open swimming lake,The Serpentine.

Shaun Drummond, Sales Director at Harrods Estates commented,“This property epitomises how to get the most out of luxury London-living with its exceptional features. However, it is also close to excellent transport links such as the Lancaster Gate tube and Paddington station, but also has the largest of the Queen’s royal parks on its door-step, all 142 hectares of Hyde Park to enjoy.”
