There are few areas of the capital more prestigious than Mayfair. From the quintessentially London architecture to the movers and shakers that have always called it home, every perfectly-placed brick is a testament to the area’s iconic place in the world. Said bricks also belong to some nice properties indeed – properties like 18 Grosvenor Square.
Apartment 3, 18 Grosvenor Square looks directly across Mayfair’s most famous stretch of greenery. Designed as a perfect slice of bucolic idealism in the heart of the city, the Square is lovely any time of the year – as is, in fact, the apartment itself. Designed by Finchatton, they of sophisticated and highly-crafted design, the apartment is perfectly suited to its address.
First impressions are all-important here. A marble-floored entrance hall, replete with dark timber, polished chrome and soft wallpaper panels, leads directly to a reception area that can only be described as pure Mayfair. The main feature of the room has got to be the windows and, in particular, their view across Grosvenor Square.
If your guests decide it’s a view worth staying for, there are four bedrooms and five bathrooms to accommodate. The bedrooms are replete in warm fabrics and silk carpets. The bathrooms are just as you’d expect from an apartment of this standard, with marble, nickel fittings and plenty of space.
In fact, all that space racks up to a grand total of 3,469 square feet. That’s nearly three and a half thousand feet of residential magnificence. It’s a lot of house. It’s also a bit more than just the house on offer, too.
No. 20 Grosvenor Square, just next door, isn’t exactly your nearest neighbour; instead, it’s where you’ll find five-star amenities like a 25m pool, a full spa suite and a state-of-the-art gym. There’s even an 18-seat cinema room. It has every facility you could need, less than 10 seconds outside your front door.
There’s an additional service charge, but it’s well worth it. Unless you’re staying at one of Mayfair’s many hotels – or happen to own an entire Grosvenor townhouse – it’s the only way you’re likely to get these kinds of facilities.
