An apartment in Knightsbridge’s One Hyde Park has topped the list of resi sales recorded by the Land Registry in September.
The latest dataset shows Apartment A.04.2 in the world-renowned Candy & Candy development went for a cool £17.5m. The luxurious City-facing three bed featured a giant reception room, bar area, balcony and a ridiculously hi spec. The finish involved lashings of marble and limestone, golden-olive silk wallpaper, brass chandeliers and “underlying tones of dark oak, sycamore, bronze and antique brass”.
The block famously furnishes residents with a raft of five-star facilities, including 24 hour security and concierge services as provided by The Mandarin Oriental, a library, business suites, entertainment room/dining area, private cinema, games room, wine storage, fully equipped gymnasium, swimming pool & spa facilities, underground storage and secure underground parking.
Other mega-sales included a stonker on Lansdowne Road in Notting Hill (£16.5m), a property on Hamilton Terrace in St Johns Wood (£12.75m), a riverside apartment on Anhalt Road in Battersea (£10.7m), and a beautiful period house on Hampstead’s Church Row (£10.5m).
