Lyons Place by Almacantar is a collection of finely crafted, high-quality apartments and townhouses, set at the meeting point of Maida Vale, Little Venice and St John’s Wood. This boutique development, set to complete in Summer 2019, will feature just 24 apartments and five three-storey townhouses. Surrounded by ample green space and some of the city’s most famous parks, canals and high-streets, Lyons Place allows for a quiet lifestyle in a coveted Zone 1 location, only moments from the heart of the city.
The first show apartment has now been unveiled, in a major milestone for the development. A beautiful 1,027 sq ft two bedroom home, with interiors by boutique design studio A.London, it sits on the first floor of the Sir Terry Farrell-designed development, with a ca. 400 sq ft private terrace looking out over a large internal courtyard.
The apartment has been designed to encompass the rich cultural and creative heritage of the area, using a natural palette with pops of colour and intrigue to create a calm and boutique feel, which sets the tone for the development as a whole.
Inspired by the history of the surrounding London villages, antique pieces have been sourced from renowned local business, Alfie’s Antique Market, and other celebrated London auction houses. The external terrace of the apartment is designed with entertaining in mind, with a bespoke fire pit and green wall creating a calm oasis that acts as an extension of the home.
Perfectly positioned at the nexus of some of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, Lyons Place sits at the heart of a bustling Prime Central London village, surrounded by the best that the city has to offer: opposite the canal and within walking distance of five tube stations, as well as world-renowned institutions such as Lord’s Cricket Ground, Abbey Road Studios, and London’s Royal Parks, Lyons Place offers village-style living in the heart of London.
The scheme has been designed by Sir Terry Farrell to provide refined London living at its very best. Apartments maximise light and space, all benefiting from outside terraces or balconies, with bright, open interiors and full height windows. Rokstone has been appointed to market the remaining homes at Lyons Place, alongside Almacantar’s in-house sales team.
Kathrin Hersel, Property Director at Almacantar, said: “Lyons Place presents a truly boutique offering, in one of the most lively and charming areas of London. Working closely with Sir Terry Farrell, and interior designers A.London, we have created a beautifully crafted collection of homes, offering buyers the chance to embed themselves in a vibrant local community, all within minutes of the city centre”
Lauren Colquhoun, Interior Designer at A.London, said: “Much like the area itself, we wanted the apartment to have real personality, allowing it to stand out within the market. We drew inspiration from the heritage of the surrounding area, designing bespoke pieces to complement our antiques and create an inviting, unique space.”
Becky Fatemi, Managing Director of Rokstone, said: “Lyons Place offers a sought-after Zone 1 location allowing residents to enjoy village-style living in the heart of London. The unveiling of the exquisite show home has been highly anticipated, offering buyers the first opportunity to immerse themselves in the scheme, and we expect high demand
