Highs and Lows in Hyde Park

Pint-sized flat in Knightsbridge goes on sale for ambitious sum of £5,813 per square foot; it was offered for the even more crazy sum of £7,027 per square foot in 2013

 

The owners of an apartment in the edifice of vulgarity that is One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge plainly have no belief in Brexit and increased stamp duty having affected the property market given they have just put the 989 square foot space on the market for the punchy price of £5.75 million ($7.65 million, €6.58 million or درهم28.11 million).

 

Offered effectively for £5,183 per square foot ($6,900, €5,928 or درهم25,342 per square foot) by agents Strutt & Parker, the third floor space was last marketed in June 2013 with what appears to be identical interior design for £6.95 million ($9.25 million, €7.95 million or درهم33.99 million). It consists of a 26’2” by 12’10” reception room with a champagne bar, a 9’2” by 6’4” kitchen and an 18’3” by 10’6 bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and comes with a single parking space and basement storage room.

 

A similar 988 square foot apartment on the fourth floor – which had been repossessed by an Irish bank – was marketed for £5.25 million ($6.99 million, €6.01 million or درهم25.68 million) or £5,313 per square foot ($7,071, €6,077 or درهم25,980 per square foot) in September 2013.

  • Beautifully designed!!!!!!!!! Just like a 6* hotel!!!!!!!!!!!! If I had to live in London I would definitely want something like this!!!!!!!!! Price is off the scale nuts though!!!!!!!!!!!! The seller plainly is a greedy f***er!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • How planning permission was ever granted is a thing of great mystery. Someone must have been paid off.
    The excuse that it's better than the pre-existing building does not stand scrutiny.
    We must now ensure that the Barracks site design is under the control of residents rather than corrupt planning officers and councillors
