Avenfield House was built in 1959-1961, to the designs of Irish architects Herbert Willis and William Kaula. The mansion block replaces seven separate homes, some of which were badly bombed during the Second World War. Herbert Willis and William Kaula formed an architectural partnership in London from 1914 until 1938 and were involved in several architectural masterpieces around the city, including the rebuilding of Grosvenor Square in 1926.

Accessed from both Dunraven Street and Park Lane, the apartment’s master bedroom offers charming views of Park Lane. Residents of this apartment will also benefit from 24-hour porter and lift services.
The kitchen is fully fitted with Siemens appliances, with smart black quartz marble work surfaces that match the black quartz flooring and complement the light grey splashback and kitchen cabinets. The kitchen transitions into a living and dining area, decorated in tones of greys and white. Two large windows provide the space with an abundance of light, creating an airy and open atmosphere.
The master bedroom features silk grey carpets and fashionable furnishings in tones of maroon and black. There are bespoke fitted wardrobes covering one wall of the room, providing ample storage space for residents and two large windows giving the room plenty of light.
The property’s bathroom provides black quartz flooring and grey marble tiles to the walls. The white gloss appliances and storage spaces complement the mirrored features around the space. A blue LED light feature sits below the bath, giving the bathroom an ultra-modern vibe.
