Story of the Home
”I am constantly looking for special properties in the best postcodes of London. There are key features a property must have for me to consider it, such as high ceilings, well-proportioned rooms, lots of light and a nice view. When I see something with all these features, I get quite excited. Even though I am a developer it is very important for me to see myself living there.
The apartment ticks all the boxes, it has very high ceilings and lots of natural light as it has windows on three sides. The three bedrooms are all doubles, so no compromising at all. The first thing that stood out about Hyde Park Crescent was the position opposite St Johns Church. The apartment spans the whole first floor of the building so feels very private and is quiet. The reception room windows overlook the mature trees on the Church green.
When I first stepped into the communal entrance hall I was surprised to see how well maintained the original features were, London has all types of architecture but it is very rare to find perfectly maintained retro 1960’s features.
The refurbishment took about 10 months to complete. The kitchen is stocked with Miele appliances and Carrerra marble work tops which finish it off perfectly. In the bathrooms I used Statuario marble tiles, Crosswater taps and Duravit sanitary ware. All high quality and hard wearing. My aim was to create a home that is both modern and sustainable for years to come.
On your doorstep is Connaught Village which has everything from retail therapy at Jimmi Choo, sushi at Kurobuta or an intimate meal at Persian restaurant Pardis. You can also pick up the perfect coffee at Hermanos. For me the best park in London is Hyde park, so having it so close is a real delight.
The area is so quiet and has a real village feel you could easily forget that you are only 5-10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the West End.
Commuting is very convenient, it is possible to walk to all corners of the West End or grab a back cab at short notice. Or if you are heading in to the City, Marble Arch Tube Station is also close by.”
