Someone once told me that home is where your heart is. However, the price of this luxurious apartment in One Hyde Park is more heart-stopping than warming. Located in the heart of London’s most attractive commercial area, surrounded by expensive shops and fancy restaurants to serve the needs of local residents on one side and a glorious view of Hyde Park on the other, One Hyde Park is already written in history’s books as in February 2017, the world’s most expensive apartment was sold off plan for £100 million.
With residents such as the former Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, the Russian businessman Vladislav Doronin, Naomi Campbell’s partner and the Australian singer Kylie Minogue you will have anything but “bad neighbours”. This building complex is the first European Residences at Mandarin Oriental, where the residents can enjoy a 24-hour service from the hotel’s restaurants and amenities, such as spa, conference/function room, golf simulation, and library.
The apartment occupies the entire seventh floor of one of the three towers. It consists of five bedrooms, a 34ft master bedroom, with its own sitting area and private balcony, as well as a fitted dressing room and 2 bathrooms. The other four bedrooms are also en-suite and they share two more bathrooms. The living room overlooks Hyde Park and there is also a chef’s kitchen to host the staff working during your dinner parties. Finally, it comes along with an underground parking for two cars and a wine storage room.
The future buyer will also face an eye-watering £6.5 million stamp duty fee and monthly service charges. The property is currently for sale for £50,000,000 through Knight Frank.
