Like any major metropolis, London has seen its fair share of luxury apartment buildings over the past few decades. From new kid in Kensington Lancer Square to the recently renovated Chelsea Powerhouse, the big penthouse culture traditionally associated with the United States has firmly and irrevocably landed in the British capital.
Yet for all the advantages of a glamorous city apartment, there’s nothing quite like the classic London townhouse. Tall, handsome and utterly unique to the city, it has come to define the city as much as black taxis and red phonebooths – and we know which we’d rather live in.
Fresh on the market is a Knightsbridge property on Montpelier Square, one of the city’s most beautiful private squares. Facing south and directly overlooking Montpelier Square gardens, this six-floor house comes in at 4,247 sq ft and benefits from an internal refurbishment and interior redesign to bring the period townhouse into the modern day.
With the redesign including air conditioning, a passenger lift and even a roof terrace, this Knightsbridge property located right in between Hyde Park and Brompton Road is perfect for those seeking a London dwelling that features all the amenities period London properties often lack. What’s more, it is perfectly positioned right in the heart of the action, whilst remaining quiet enough not to be disturbed by the sounds of the city.
And with six bedrooms, five bathrooms, three living spaces and an excellent kitchen, the property is especially ideal for families and a wide range of hosting possibilities.
The first three floors – basement, first and second – are occupied by reception and entertaining areas, and all feature access to both the atrium and the roof terrace. The third floor houses the master bedroom suite, whilst the remaining double bedrooms of this glorious Knightsbridge property are arranged on the top two floors.
“Montpelier Square is the epitome of opulence, and this meticulously refurbished residence sets a new standard for luxury living in the heart of Knightsbridge,” commented Shaun Drummond, director of residential sales at Harrods Estate.
“With a lift and AC, it offers the utmost convenience and comfort. This home boasts three generous reception areas, each seamlessly connecting to a double-height glazed atrium or a spacious roof terrace, creating an ambiance of grandeur and sophistication.”
