Abode2 Property Showcase



Whilst living in a hotel suite might seem like an extravagant luxury to most, a newly-available rental opportunity on one of London’s most desirable streets will allow the tenant to live a very similar lifestyle. On the market with prime specialists Russell Simpson, the newly-listed one-bedroom mezzanine apartment, located in the highly exclusive Lancaster Gate, has a similar layout to a hotel suite and is available to let at £950 per week – half the price of a typical five star hotel suite.

Retaining all of the charm of a luxury hotel room, 55 Lancaster Gate can be rented for less than a five star suite, with the monthly rent amounting to at £4,116.67 per month which is over £1,000 cheaper than renting a suite at the nearby Grand Royale Hotel, Bayswater for one month (£5,220). The monthly rent is also vastly cheaper when compared with some of London’s finest hotels; a one month stay in a basic suite at The Connaught, Mayfair would total £30,600 pm, whilst a similar room at The Ritz would cost £77,700 pm.

Designed in the style of a five star hotel suite, 55 Lancaster Gate includes a bedroom suite on the mezzanine level, as well as a decadent library, whilst the ground floor features a drawing room, kitchen, bathroom and restaurant-style inverted booth, which acts as a quaint dining area.

55 Lancaster Gate is set within the walls of a charming Grade II listed white stucco-fronted building in one of the UK’s most desirable postcodes. An elegant communal staircase leads up to the 980 sq. ft. apartment, which comprises an open-plan drawing room, kitchen with high-end appliances, master bedroom, with walk-in dressing room and bathroom suite. The apartment is filled with natural light through resplendent floor to ceiling windows, while relaxed soft furnishings and an original brushed marble fireplace create a relaxed yet refined atmosphere.

The property is also decorated by tastefully-chosen art throughout, and many period features from the building’s construction in the 1870s remain, including ornate plaster mouldings on the ceiling.

Regularly featured in lists of the UK’s most expensive streets, the terraces which form Lancaster Gate were designed by John Johnson, who was also a key figure in the architecture of Alexandra Palace. The stuccoed buildings are in an eclectic classical style featuring English Baroque details, with French detailing.

Attracting a number of high-profile residents, including Tony Blair, Bayswater also played host to the Football Association’s head offices until 2000, while other buildings are also used as international embassies and hotels. Historically an affluent area, Londoners nicknamed the nearby Christ Church as ‘the thousand pound church’, due to the large sums collected from local congregation every Sunday at its peak popularity.

Tenants at 55 Lancaster Gate will benefit from everything Zone 1 has to offer, with Hyde Park on the doorstep. Lancaster Gate and Queensway underground stations (Central line) a short walk away. From there, Oxford Circus is a six-minute tube journey, Holborn takes ten minutes and Bank fifteen. Locally, the area is thriving, with the Whiteleys Shopping Centre approved for a luxurious redesign, quick access to Oxford Street and Mayfair, as well the museums and Royal Albert Hall through the park.
