The latest in property developer Christian Candy’s long portfolio of London homes, 80 Holland Park is a collection of 25 super-prime residences within one of the capital’s most sought-after locations. A collection of one- to five-bedroom apartments, penthouses and townhouses, they all come equipped with every mod-con you would expect: a 24-hour concierge, a private cinema, an abundance of outdoor space and a world-class gym and wellness center.
Marrying the area’s classic Victorian architecture with contemporary accents, the residences are deeply considered. Completed in 1879, the original Holland Park villas featured white stucco facades, creating an architectural set piece. The new additions to the area – 80 Holland Park – are an elegant reimagining for modern living.
Bordering Holland Park to the north, this particular area of London is vibrant. Combining peaceful local living with the benefits of city life, the neighborhood has everything you could need right on your doorstep: local cafes and independent stores, yet great connections to London’s best shopping districts, restaurants and cultural hubs.
New to the market, award-winning London-based interior and design studio Laura Hammett has unveiled a 3,600-sq-ft penthouse. One of just four penthouses within 80 Holland park, they embody refined British luxury.
Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the park and neighboring villas and flood the home with light. As the only one with direct park views, the designers took this as their inspiration. Using foliage, earthy color palettes and large windows which provide treetop views they were able to bring the outside in.
Arranged over two floors, the top level houses the main living spaces. A white gloss kitchen with a terrace flows seamlessly into the living room, completed in a warm neutral color palette accented by rich metallic bronzes. There is also a dining room with a bespoke round dark timber table – perfect for hosting friends at dinner parties or enjoying quiet family meals.
A statement staircase with a bronze mirrored wall leads to the lower level where the four bedrooms can be found. The master bedroom is generous and feels like a calm oasis. The four-poster timber bed and natural textures are a nod to nature that runs throughout the penthouse. The other bedrooms are similarly designed, with rich pops of color accompanying neutral tones.
Future homeowners can also gain access to an array of extraordinary amenities within 80 Holland Park. Designed with a specific focus on wellbeing, residents can enjoy a 55-ft pool, steam room and a state-of-the-art gym designed by Olympic triathlete Tim Weeks.
When creating the homes, long-term sustainability was considered from the start. Committed to responsible design, two million recycled yellow stock London bricks were used in the walls and foundations, silent lifts to reduce sound pollution within the apartments, and EV car charging points which encourage homeowners to make the switch to electric. These low-maintenance and low-impact homes also use solar PVs which reduce grid electricity.
