Wetherell Properties recently launched to the private sales market one of the most impressive homes in the posh Knightsbridge area. The newly remodeled, luxury penthouse suite in Wellington Court is listed at £35 million, a reasonable price tag considering the exclusive location of this 10,000 sq. ft. penthouse. This sprawling penthouse sits atop the historic residential building, which was originally established in the 19th Century. Formerly The Second Duke of Wellington’s Riding School, this original high-profile park-side development is still the epitome of luxurious living.
Situated in of one of the most exclusive locations in the world, this lavish apartment has the largest private Hyde Park rooftop terrace of any penthouse in Knightsbridge. Neighbouring the most famous London parkland, it benefits from six individual terraces, providing exceptional views onto Hyde Park, Mayfair and Knightsbridge. The main lounge terrace spans 1,000 sq. ft. providing full views onto the park, the Serpentine River, as well as a West to East cityscape.
Prime properties in the capital city have long been a magnet for the super-wealthy looking for a safe investment asset. For those who can afford the premium prices, the fabulous residences are very appealing; especially considering the ground floor is home to the 250 capacity, members-only Wellington Club. This is a hotspot for high-profile individuals and celebrities including Mick Jagger, Bono and Rihanna. Potential buyers looking to rub elbows with the rich and famous or visit world-renowned shops such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols, will find this residence ideal.
Another of its greatest assets is the combination of elegance and tradition reminiscent of old London, alongside a modern, cosmopolitan experience. Its throwback to the roaring 1920’s Art Deco Great Gatsby style, combined with modern furnishings, deliver a classic yet contemporary elegance. Every aspect of its design speaks of its deliberate attention to providing the highest standards of quality.
Commenting on the build-work and interior design for the penthouse, Chief Executive Peter Wetherell says, “The penthouse offers one of the largest living spaces currently on the market. The interiors have been specially designed to create a sophisticated ambience, using the finest detailing, finishing and furnishings that provide unparalleled luxury in the heart of one of London’s most attractive areas.”
This is no ordinary living and eating space, but more of a super-apartment that provides all the comforts of a luxurious, private residence but also delivers the ultimate leisure experiences. The apartment features a near 27ft wide reception room with floor to ceiling bi-folding doors leading on to a grand terrace with a covered dining area for 12, sitting area with fireplace and TV. A cinema room, gymnasium, exercise area, treatment room and music room that houses a baby grand piano, in addition to the family-sized kitchen with breakfast nook, study area, and bar, make it the perfect apartment for entertaining.
The Master Bedroom suite occupies the entire South West wing of the penthouse with access to a private 145 sq. ft. terrace. His and hers walk in wardrobes and bathrooms have been designed with a masculine and feminine quality, and a shared Jacuzzi room partitioning the two. A secret access door to the kitchen is accessible from the feminine bathroom.
The West wing of the penthouse provides four guest bedroom suites, each providing en-suite or adjoining bathrooms. Each guest room is designed with bespoke interior finishings giving each its own unique character.
Of course, a life of luxury would be incomplete without the availability of full-time service staff. Located in the South West portion of the penthouse is the Staff Quarters, which come with a fully equipped service kitchen, bathroom and utility room.
On the market exclusively with Wetherell Properties, Peter Wetherell concludes, “This is arguably the most luxurious penthouse currently on the market in Knightsbridge. Located in what would have been the benchmark for Ultra Prime developments of its day, Wellington Court appeals to the UHNWI’s that prefer traditional built exteriors, combined with the finest modern interiors and finishes,” making it a rare and perfect opportunity for those wishing to join the life of unparalleled indulgence.
