From Duke’s Townhouse To Dazzling Apartments

24.03.21

Abode2 takes a peek around the grand townhouse in Mayfair's historic Park Street, originally the London home of James Hamilton, the 3rd Duke of Abercorn, which now, thanks to Neil Choudhury Architects, is a brand new residential development providing magnificent luxury apartments.

The late-Victorian townhouse on Park Street was originally built in 1891-94 to the designs of architect Sir Robert W. Edis under the auspices of the 1st Duke of Westminster. The five-story red brick façade has deep multi-story bay windows, pillared entrance portico, Dutch style gable and elegant stone and terracotta detailing.

Built behind the retained period façade, the residential development provides six brand new two bedroom, two bathroom apartments, ranging from 875 square foot up to 1,478 square foot in size, with one apartment per floor over lower ground, ground and four upper floors. The apartments are approached through an elegant entrance hallway with a passenger lift to all floors.

Each apartment has a spacious reception room with Oak timber flooring in a Nero finish, flume feature fireplace and feature lighting, with some of the apartments incorporating a deep bay window. The reception rooms provide for a spacious living area and dining area. Located off the main reception room is a fully fitted designer kitchen with sleek white fitted units, white-stone corian worktops, integrated appliances and a breakfast bar.

All the apartments have a principal bedroom suite with ensuite bathroom and a guest bathroom/shower room and in a selection of the apartments the second bedroom has an ensuite shower room.

The apartments have been finished to a high specification with features including home automation systems, air-conditioning and Banham CCTV security. The apartments are all available for immediate occupation and can be rented furnished or unfurnished.

Located on the highly sought-after Western side of Mayfair, close to Hyde Park and Park Lane, Park Street is the longest street in Mayfair, running from South Street to Oxford Street and connecting with Mount Street, Mayfair’s local high street. House building on Park Street was originally started in the late 1720s and was completed in the late 1770s. However, the Northern end of Park Street (which contained the Duke of Abercorn’s townhouse), along with much of Green Street which intersects it, were redeveloped between 1891-94 by the Grosvenor Estate to provide a range of grand late-Victorian red brick or terracotta backed townhouses under a masterplan devised by architect Sir Robert W. Edis. Park Street and Green Street remain two of Mayfair’s most popular addresses due to the size and grandeur of the late-Victorian properties on both streets.

The apartments on Park Street are available to let priced at £1,150 per week for a two-bedroom apartment on either the ground or second floor, or at £1,200 per week for a first floor or larger lower ground floor apartment.
