London Living Peaks at Kensington Apartment on Lancer Square

Property of the Week: Kensington's new Lancer Square development is pure London luxury.

By Bea Isaacson

Tucked at the bottom of the delightful winding Kensington Church Street, and mere seconds from the bustle of London shopping district High Street Kensington – not to mention its fantastic proximity to Kensington Palace Gardens – there is no greater address to live out the London fantasy than the newly opened Lancer Square.

You know the London fantasy we’re talking about. Café culture on the Church Street, boutique shopping on the High Street – even rainy-day walks through next-door Hyde Park have us quoting Four Weddings and a Funeral. A short ride away from the epicenter of London’s West End, it’s no wonder that Lancer Square has been the talk of town since building began at the end of last decade.

Award-winning British architecture practice Squire & Partners is at the helm of the building design, which is set around a public courtyard. Featuring a manicured lawn and a pond at its center, inspiration was drawn from the site’s history as the original Kensington Palace grounds.

And interior design studio 1508 London – previous works include nearby The Lanesborough and the London Mandarin Oriental Residences – have been recruited for the Lancer Square interior design of the showroom apartments, which seamlessly blended modern luxury with trademarks of British architecture.

All remaining units on the market are sensational, but it’s Residence 27 of Lancer Square that has particularly caught our eye. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the penthouse measures almost 3,000 sq ft in size, including a wrap-around terrace that boasts vistas over the iconic Holland Park.

The living room is large and tall, and is gracefully connected to the dining room and kitchen, the latter of which features a large island. A grand piano stylishly separates the living room, adding a touch of jazzy sophistication to the space.
