Ever dreamt about owning a 3,703 square foot apartment in the centre of London, complete with the service of a five-star hotel? No? What’s wrong with you? If like the rest of us that sounds like your dream residence, cough up £11,250,000 for one of the most sought-after apartments in the capital.
10 Whitehall Place might not sound familiar, but the hotel underneath likely does. The Corinthia is legendary as one of London’s priciest, with the service to match. This private ownership penthouse sits directly on top.
Apartment 11 is clad as one might expect at this price: bespoke furniture and fittings across the board, high ceilings and a design just the right side of extravagant. Think Macassar ebony doors, Calacatta Oro marble and deep-pile silk carpets. It’s also furnished with spectacular views of the Thames, ministries and the good and great of London landmarks, but then that’s of course to be expected.
That said, there are plenty of these properties out there with the same kind of views. What makes this any different? Well, it not only has full access to the hotel, it has full service from it too. For an extra £40,000 a year service charge, the Cornithia will maintain the apartment and act as if it were another suite. Granted it’s substantially bigger, with four bedrooms and a private lift, but that just goes to show the hotel is earning its fee. It also means Apartment 11 comes with private access to the beautiful ESPA Life spa and a direct line to the concierge.
Needless to say, there are few places like it in London and fewer still for sale. If you want to snap this one up, get over to the guys at Wetherell, the estate agents trusted with taking this thing to the market. Just promise us one thing: we get an invite to the housewarming.
