The Lady Builder acquired this basement apartment in a very run down condition – there was an exposed concrete floor, broken windows, sockets hanging off the wall and huge cracks in the walls.
The apartment sits in Queen's Gardens in the prestigious Bayswater area of West London, a minute's walk from Hyde Park. All the buildings in this area are listed and so there were strict building regulations to abide to, but there was a huge amount of potential in the space (650sq.ft).
Finished to a high specification, this contemporary apartment includes engineered oak flooring, underfloor heating throughout and in-build ceiling speakers in every room.
Accessed via its own private entrance, the apartment has a bright reception/dining room with a limestone fireplace and study area. The kitchen features granite worktops, a boiling hot water tap and build-in Miele appliances. The bedroom suite at the back of the apartment features a walk-in wardrobe and ample additional storage—always a priority to city dwellers. The luxurious bathroom has a powerful rainforest shower head and an aquavision television at the end of the bath.
The apartment was decorated with neutral Farrow & Ball colours to appeal to a wide range of potential buyers. and furnished with stylish products from a range of brands such as Osborne & Little.
