Five of the best: Compact living

Living on a small scale in Central London

 

Space is at a premium in Central London, so here we share five of the best one bedroom apartments currently on the market. Prices range from £725,000 to an astounding £6,950,000.

 

B.03.3, One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, SW1X – £6,950,000

One Hyde Park reception room 550 One Hyde Park plan 550The highest priced apartment in this Candy & Candy landmark building sold for £136,000,000 so naturally even what agents Strutt & Parker described as a “the ultimate London pied-a-terre” was bound to be expensive. 989 square foot in size, there is a 26ft by 12ft reception room with a champagne bar, an 18ft by 10ft bedroom and even a car parking space. The service charge for the apartment is a not so insignificant £16,750 per annum but for that you get access to a 60 man Mandarin Oriental concierge team, a private spa and swimming pool, a squash court, an entertaining suite with spaces for canapé receptions for 100 guests and a private screening room with seating for 18 guests.

 

Cranley Gardens, South Kensington, SW7 – £725,000

Cranley Gardens 1

Cranley Gardens 2Converting a single high ceilinged room into a one bedroom flat wouldn’t normally work but the transformation of this 453 square foot ground floor apartment has produced spectacular results. As well as a bright 15ft by 13ft sitting room, there is a mezzanine kitchen with a dining area, a small internal double bedroom and what agents Marsh & Parsons call a “stylish” shower room.

 

Upper Grosvenor Street, Mayfair, W1 – £6,000,000

Upper Grosvenor Street 1Upper Grosvenor Street 2If you’re a bachelor who enjoys entertaining on a grand scale, the star attraction of this 2,047 square foot first floor apartment, which is for sale through Knight Frank, will be the 100 square foot paneled reception room with four floor to ceiling windows. For the dandy, there is a dressing room kitted out with burr walnut fittings and if you’re a studious sort, there’s a compact study/library.

 

Queen’s Gate Mews, South Kensington, SW7 – £775,000

Queen's Gate Mews 550With a private entrance and 732 square foot of accommodation, this lower ground floor flat is surprisingly light.

Shelley Court, Tite Street, Chelsea, SW3 – £1,895,000
