RARE VASTU SHASTRA HOME HITS THE MARKET ON HISTORIC PONT STREET

Luxury London developer One Point Six London has launched a beautiful three-bedroom lateral apartment, with a unique layout, on the historic Pont Street. The £4.75 million home has been designed to incorporate Vastu Shastra, a 5,000 year old interior and architectural design practice, which is a must-have among Indian buyers. The ancient design principle – similar to the Chinese art of Feng Shui - includes elements of traditional Hindu and Buddhist customs, which are believed to improve the health, prosperity, happiness, and peace of mind of inhabitants.

Translating as ‘the science of architecture’ the ancient practice analyses four key elements of a property’s layout, including the entrance, bathrooms, bedrooms and the kitchen. The third floor home at 49-51 Pont Street has been classified as 80% Vastu compliant, which is well above the London average.

49-51 Pont Street is North facing which is one of the most desirable compass directions of properties from a Vastu compliance perspective.  The entrance hall to the apartment is in the East 4 quadrant, which is one of the best points of direction, this is said to bring prosperity and strengthen the social connections of the residents.

The Kitchen is South East facing, which is well-located in the principles of Vastus Shastra, whilst the Master Bedroom provides supportive elements with the bed facing North West. One of the guest bedrooms faces South East, which is a direction of Power and Confidence according to the report. The natural colours used for the fixtures and fittings, light coloured walls and matchbook marble in the bathrooms is compatible from a Vastu perspective, bringing a sense of prosperity and clarity.

Providing 1,360 sq. ft. of accommodation, the apartment has been completely reconfigured to utilise space and extract maximum value. The home, formerly comprising two bedrooms and two bathrooms, has been reshaped to provide a master bedroom suite with walk-in dressing room, guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing room, as well as a third guest bedroom, guest bathroom, enclosed kitchen and open-plan living / dining room.

Fixtures and fittings include Miele kitchen appliances, controlled light systems, comfort cooling systems and an ethanol fireplace, whilst the building is serviced by a porter and a lift reaches all floors.

Caroline added: “When we first purchased the apartment it was laid out in a very old-fashioned style, which simply wasn’t compatible for today’s living standards. There’s a real demand for an even bedroom to bathroom ratio from buyers today, which we’ve managed to achieve by restructuring the layout, allowing us to bring modern luxury whilst maintaining a period feel to this fantastic apartment.”

The street itself is one of the most notable in London, just moments from Harrods and Sloane Square, it is best known as the location of Oscar Wilde’s arrest in 1893. The famous author, actor and playwright was taken from his popular place of residence, Room 118 at the Cadogan Hotel, and charged under accusation from the Marquess of Queensberry. He was later found guilty and sentenced to two years hard labour.

Located on the corner of Pont Street and Sloane Street, the Cadogan Hotel has long been popular with high-profile guests. One of the most famous is Lillie Langtry, an American born actress who took up permanent residence in the hotel when her apartment block was absorbed by the establishment’s expansion. A close friend of Oscar Wilde’s, Langtry became embroiled in a Royal scandal when her three-year affair with King Edward VII (then the Prince of Wales) was exposed by her husband in 1879.

This exclusive apartment at 49-51 Point Street is on the market for £4,750,000, which includes all furniture and artwork, as well as one year’s complimentary property management services from quintessentially.
