This new luxury development offers a rare chance to live in one of London’s most prestigious locations
Fancy being neighbours with the Queen? Now you can, thanks to Trafalgar One, a new bespoke residential development created by renowned luxury developers BMB.
Launched in January, the development benefits from being the only residential address in Trafalgar Square and offers two, three and four bedroom apartments.
Located in the former London headquarters of railway, hotel and steamship company Canadian Pacific, the building, with its bold clock tower and classic architecture, has become a familiar part of the area’s landscape.
The building is comprised of four lateral apartments and one duplex penthouse, all featuring unrivalled double aspect panoramic views of the iconic square, Buckingham Palace and The Mall. All apartments retain many of the property’s original period features but have been extensively refurbished to facilitate the needs and lifestyles of today’s discerning buyers.
Each apartment spans across an entire floor and boasts floor to ceiling windows, allowing for plenty of light, solid wood floors with under floor heating, open plan kitchens and Creston systems to manage lighting, heating and multimedia programs.
Residents can park in an annually renewable secure underground car park, which comes with a lift offering direct access to each apartment.
Prices start at £5.5m and the development could prove a worthwhile investment. A recent report by Chesterton Humberts says prices of residential properties in prime central London are steadily increasing year on year thanks, in part, to the on-going interest in the area from international buyers looking to the capital for a safe haven to invest their money.
The central location means that prospective residents will have everything at their doorstep. The National Portrait Gallery is on the square and neighbouring Covent Garden offers esteemed cultural institutions like the Royal Opera House. Soho is close by, too, offering a plethora of options for entertainment including the theatres on Shaftesbury Avenue and a diverse selection of restaurants and boutique shops. Charing Cross station is a stone’s throw away creating unrivalled transport links, including the underground, national rail and buses, with many bike docks in the area too.
