Period features meet contemporary luxury living at Aldford House


KNOWN FOR being the residential location of choice for many of the capital’s most prominent figures, Park Lane is one of the most prestigious residential roads in London (it isn’t the second most expensive street on the London edition of Monopoly for nothing). The road, which was once little more than a narrow country road with a wall separating it from Hyde Park, now houses Aldford House, a unique residential development. And if it’s history that you’re after, Aldford House has it in droves.

The building has been developed and lavishly refurbished by Fenton Whelan and a unique three-bedroom apartment in the building has become available for £8m.

The property maintains the art deco style of 1930s Mayfair but has been meticulously transformed to reflect a modern sense of luxury and comes equipped with all of the modern gizmos and interior features you would expect. Devices can be controlled by an iPad, Italian marble-flooring feature throughout and other additions include a Bulthaup-designed kitchen, Lutron lighting and Gaggeanu appliances.

On entering the building you are greeted by a 24-hour porterage and the entrance to the property itself features a large entrance hall before you meet the reception room, which is ideal for entertaining guests. There is also a vast dining room.

It benefits from impressive views created by its triple-aspect position, so Hyde Park and Park Lane can be viewed from the spacious and airy reception room, and views along Aldford Street to Mayfair Village and Grosvenor Chapel can be seen from the master bedroom.

Many of the capital’s biggest attractions are within walking distance and prospective residents will have access to excellent transport links. Hyde Park Corner, Green Park and Knightsbridge tube stations are nearby and there are a variety of bus routes and bike docking stations in the area too.
