This $45m London Penthouse has a 45-second Commute

Property of the Week: Holland Park Gate encourages a balanced and sustainable way of living.

By Ellys Woodhouse

For those who struggle to leave the office, we might have found the perfect pad for you. Introducing the Penthouse at London‘s Holland Park Gate, a luxuriously designed residence that has been thoughtfully designed to promote a balanced and sustainable way of living. 

The £35m (approx. $44.5m) penthouse property crowns the top sixth and seventh floors of the Holland Park Gate development, above the iconic Art Deco proscenium arch for which the site is known. The 5,500-sq-ft apartment features floor-to-ceiling windows on both levels and a 2,033 sq-ft terrace, offering sweeping views of Holland Park and Kensington.

Situated on the ground floor of the development – or just a 45-second elevator ride, but who’s counting? – the owners will find a purpose-built private office space. Designed as a private space to work that is within the development but outside of the home, the office space is intended to promote a healthy lifestyle for residents. A similar size to the cabinet room at 10 Downing Street, the private office space has been built to hold board meetings, host leadership teams or even house a small corporate headquarters.

Located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Holland Park Gate is a mere moments away from renowned green spaces such as Holland Park, Kensington Palace Gardens and Hyde Park – ideal for moments when you need to touch some grass.

Housed in a former Art Deco cinema known as the Kensington Kinema, developer Lodha made a considered effort to ensure Holland Park Gate will preserve the iconic proscenium façade design of the original theatre. 

Inside, however, Lodha brought a focus on elegant design, impeccable craftsmanship and a commitment to excellence to the property’s interiors. Blending timeless elegance with modern luxuries, the Penthouse boats prime-grade European oak flooring and Italian marble stone worktops in the kitchen  – rather fitting since London’s own Design Museum is only across the road.

After a stressful day, residents can destress and decompress with access to a state-of-the-art health club and spa, designed by Milan’s renowned Piero Lissoni – whose work can be seen at London’s Hotel Cafe Royal. With a 25-meter pool, treatment rooms, a gym and a kids’ play area, the amenities are as impressive as they are extensive.

And when the commute requires you to go beyond the confines of your residential block, Holland Park Gate’s prime location ensures ease of access. Liverpool Street Station and the City of London are within a 30-minute commute via nearby Earl’s Court and High Street Kensington Underground stations and international travel is equally convenient, with Heathrow Airport just 30 minutes away.
