London’s Mayfair postcode is one of the most desirable addresses in the world and a gorgeous penthouse apartment has just been awarded for its revolutionary redesign at the Society of British and International Design’s International Design Awards. This apartment was declared the winner of the prestigious “Residential Design over £1m” category at one of the most highly regarded awards ceremonies on the design industry calendar.
The penthouse apartment is within the historic Greybrook House, a former piano showroom and a building designed by Sir John Burnet, the architect responsible for designing sections of the British Museum as well as other major buildings across the capital. The building can be found on Mayfair’s Brook Street, one of the most exclusive addresses in the city and just minutes from some of the world’s finest dining and shopping destinations as well as global landmarks such as Bond Street, Grosvenor Square and Park Lane.
This stunning penthouse apartment has been designed and reimaged by global luxury real estate brand, Fenton Whelan, a design agency also based in Mayfair that specializes in restoring and enhancing heritage buildings across the capital.
The newly enhanced apartment skillfully balances modern designs with Art Deco-era ambience and sophistication to create one of the most elegant homes in the capital. Fenton Whelan’s redesign has provided a Grade II listed building with a contemporary twist, with the creation of a spectacular private rooftop terrace boasting views of the world-famous London skyline, perched above the city’s bustling streets.
Entertainment spaces abound throughout the apartment. Visitors will be greeted in the main reception area with all eyes immediately drawn to the central hanging fireplace feature which completes the room. This open-plan space is perfect for both dinner parties as well as more casual drinks, with a spacious dining area adjoining the luxuriously comfortable lounge. The classic sophistication of the bar area also provides an ideal focal point for guests and only adds to the opulent atmosphere of the penthouse.
The apartment’s master bedroom is secluded within the property, tucked away from the rest of the penthouse to ensure tranquility, even if there are guests staying. There is a large en-suite bathroom, complete with a grand bathtub that is the perfect spot in which to relax. In addition to the master bedroom, this gorgeous penthouse apartment boasts four luxurious guest bedrooms, each boasting marbled en-suite bathrooms and five star levels of comfort and opulence.
This large penthouse is surely one of the most spectacular properties in London and showcases exactly what can be expected from the winner of a prestigious award.
Those looking to secure their own piece of historic Mayfair should consider two or three bedroom homes, which are typically priced between £1.5 million and £5.25 million. There is also a great deal of variation in the cost of property within one of the world’s most sought-after postcodes with the price per square foot ranging from £2,200 up to £4,400. These numbers indicate that Mayfair property is not just available to the super-rich and there are opportunities which cannot be missed on apartments throughout the desirable W1 postcode.
