Some of the most desirable homes in London come with two keys: one to a flat and one to a communal garden. Despite the name, communal gardens are semi-private spaces, exclusively for the use of residents in surrounding buildings. Offering the atmosphere of a public park with the privacy of a secluded estate, communal gardens are a rare amenity afforded to premier properties such as this three-bedroom flat in Mayfair.

Covering two levels, the 2,300-square-foot home features direct walk-out access to the Green Street Gardens via a patio terrace. Views of the garden can also be taken in from a second-story balcony in the primary suite, complete with a walk-in wardrobe.

The first floor encompasses an open-concept double reception room with a dining area adorned with a fireplace. Mirrored on the other side of the level, a fireplace centers the main living area. French doors with transom windows brighten the space and frame sights of the gardens.

Wide-plank wood floors run throughout. Cove lighting surrounded the inset borders of the central ceiling. Set apart, the kitchen further distinguishes itself with a sleek, ultramodern design. Upstairs houses the three en-suite bedrooms, as well as a study.

Should the private gardens be insufficient, the Mayfair flat is located a block from Hyde Park and around the corner from Grosvenor Square. Also in proximity are many of London’s most revered restaurants and shopping.

About the area: Mayfair, known for its historic architecture, green spaces and luxury shops and restaurants, has long been one of London’s most desirable areas. The housing in Mayfair reflects a preference for refined living, with historic streets such as Park Lane, Grosvenor Square and Berkeley Square being especially popular. High-end shops and boutiques on Mount Street, South Molton Street, and Bond Street are another draw, while dining options include a number of Michelin Star restaurants. While synonymous with wealth, Mayfair retains a cozy village feel that makes it an attractive spot for both residents and visitors.
