Those looking to be a stone’s throw from the world famous Harrods department store will be delighted to learn that a new luxury apartment scheme has launched with Harrods Estates. And what’s more, it’s quite literally opposite the store.
The boutique collection, aptly named No.32 Hans Road, has been meticulously designed to support an elevated lifestyle, comprising three apartments behind a stunningly beautiful period façade in one of prime London’s most desirable locations.
The freehold building, with a gross internal area of approximately 6,153 sq ft/572 sq m comprises three luxurious duplex apartments in a new exclusive development overlooking Harrods.
Rebuilt behind the original and imposing façade to an incredibly high specification of elegant proportions and interior-designed by Todhunter Earle, seasoned specialists renowned for their sophisticated design style, Hans Road is an exceptional example of luxury living in Prime Central London.
The renowned prestige of the Harrods department store has significantly influenced the fate of Knightsbridge, with many discerning individuals seeking a home as close to the store as possible.
Shaun Drummond, sales director of Harrods Estates said, “There is undoubtedly a distinct correlation between the price of property and proximity to Harrods. In fact, we recently commissioned a research report which suggests practicality is an important factor for many buyers and tenants who are already Harrods customers.
“The convenience of living next to Harrods is one of the main reasons for their choice of location. This appears to be reflected in the way property of all sizes and style in the immediate vicinity of Harrods commands a premium price.”
The Dataloft research, commissioned by Harrods Estates, reveals that there are huge jumps in £ per sq ft values.The closer a property is located to Harrods, underlines the role it has in defining the residential market in Knightsbridge. Property which is located within a 0-15 minute walk of Harrods attracts a considerable price premium when compared to average Prime Central London residential values.
As you step inside all three of the apartments you’re greeted by a continuous feeling of luxury, flow and warmth. The penthouse, with its vaulted ceilings and spacious open plan living area, offers an attractive balance between traditionalism and modernity.
Neutral palettes of muted grey beautifully combine with champagne tones, accented by sophisticated furnishings and splashes of textured, ethnic fabrics. Warm wood, contemporary decor and a variety of modern lighting are beautifully complemented by art works creating a modern, classical feel.
Simon Barry, head of New Residential Developments at Harrods Estates said, “The project managers Dartmouth Capital, known for their highly successful Henry Moore Court Development, are delivering 32 Hans Road on behalf of CDL.
“City Developments Limited is one of Singapore’s largest listed companies and in recent years has acquired an exceptional portfolio of prime development sites and investments in Central London. CDL’s impressive track-record across multiple countries will be reassuring to purchasers of high value property.”
Knightsbridge was first developed in the late 1700’s, but is better known for the later Victorian terraces faced with the famous soft red brick, synonymous with Hans Town in the 1890’s (also known as ‘Pont Street Dutch’). No. 32 Hans Road combines period elegance with all the conveniences of modern technology, lift access and contemporary design, identified with today’s top-notch properties.
