The Peninsula Residences London
The Peninsula Residences London – a once in a generation real estate opportunity.
The Peninsula Residences London is a collection of 25 exclusive private residences set within the new landmark – only the second the be created in the brand’s 100-year history.
Surpassing the notion of the branded residency, properties are fully integrated into the hotel building, which is fully owned and managed by The Peninsula, seamlessly fusing peerless hospitality and ultra-prime real estate to introduce a luxury lifestyle offering that has never been seen before in the capital.
The Peninsula will offer a selection of expansive one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments and a penthouse. The apartments offer a rare scale for London with two-bedroom properties starting from 2,500sqft and three bedrooms over 4,000sqft. These will be some of the last new build properties at this size in prime central London following the recent size restrictions issued by Westminster City Council in 2019, limiting new build homes to 1,614sqft. Properties offer views across the most celebrated parts of London, including the Wellington Arch, the treetops of Buckingham Palace Gardens, and to the iconic skyline beyond. All forming a backdrop to the interiors via vast full-length glazing, extending the full 3m ceiling heights in the principle living spaces.
With bespoke interior architecture by Peter Marino, the residences will feature an exclusive specification. For example, residents will be presented with the options of either open-plan or zoned kitchens. The open-plan kitchens will showcase oak cabinetry and the zoned kitchens will have copper-clad cabinetry, both of which will exhibit marble countertops and built-in appliances by Wolf, Sub-Zero or Miele.
Lifestyle and service – a peerless residential experience.
The Peninsula is synonymous with unrivalled, world-leading service and the new London residences will offer a seamless extension of the renowned hospitality, at home and away. All aspects of the address are tended to exclusively by Peninsula staff, from the concierge to housekeeping, and overseen by a dedicated Director of Residences (previously the director of resident services at One Hyde Park) and the Managing Director of The Peninsula London. Residents have access to all five-star services of the hotel, including in-residence dining from any of the four new venues, the chauffeured Rolls Royce car fleet, laundry and dry cleaning, and daily housekeeping. Most notably, the highly personalised concierge service, synonymous with The Peninsula global reputation, is on hand not only for residential needs but all lifestyle requirements – whether at home or anywhere in the world, from dinner reservations in New York to dry cleaning in Tokyo.
Properties are POA and due for completion summer 2022. Regardless of remaining very much under the radar of London’s luxury property scene, The Peninsula legacy is well established in this market and some 60% of the properties have been secured off market, largely to North American-based customers where the brand is familiar through its Fifth Avenue and Beverly Hills locations.
The London Residences feature exquisite five-star facilities, mirroring those of the hotel but with absolute exclusivity for residents, with security and privacy as a top priority. These include:
- Private access via a secluded entrance on Halkin Street. A discreet and secure porte-cochère grants access into the private residents’ lobby and lounge, while valet parking will ensure a seamless arrival experience
- Residents’ lobby and lounge with 24/7 concierge
- A boardroom available to book for meetings
- 25m indoor swimming pool
- Vitality pool
- Treatment rooms
- His and hers steam and sauna room
- Screening room
- Underground parking and drivers’ room
Residents also have private, direct access from their home to the wider destination spa of the hotel, along with the new collection of dining venues and experiences. The team also provide property management and maintenance while away for the upmost convenience and peace of mind.
Location – Belgravia
Established for over 200 years, Belgravia is recognised as one of the world’s most prestigious residential addresses, located next door to Buckingham Palace. Surrounded by the capital’s most celebrated Royal Parks such as Green Park (1 minute walk), Green Park (4 minutes’ walk) and Hyde Park (5 minutes’ walk), it is renowned for its Regency-style architecture and streets, squares and crescents. Former residents of Belgravia include Mozart, Chopin, Neville Chamberlain, Ian Fleming and Vivien Leigh. Beyond its aesthetic heritage, Belgravia is a hub for the city’s finest history, arts, and lifestyle offerings from Harrods, Fortnum & Mason and Berkeley Square (15 minutes’ walk) to the V&A Museum and Royal Academy of Arts (20 minutes’ walk).
Ever-evolving, Belgravia is also home to some of the city’s most exciting new additions, including the world-first village concept by Anya Hindmarch and a grand new private members’ club, located just next door to The Peninsula London at 6 Grosvenor Place. The refurbishment of the Grade II listed building, originally designed in 1868 by Thomas Cundy III and formerly the home of a women’s members’ club, is introducing the latest venture from Brian Clivaz – previously founding director of Home House, MD of Scott’s Restaurant and The Arts Club in Mayfair.
Next year (2022) will also see the opening of the new Cleveland Clinic – the first entry into London for one of the world’s leading providers of specialised medical care.
