Property Of The Week: Allen House In Kensington Unveils First Apartment & Harrods Partnership


Allen House, a handsome Edwardian mansion building has been sensitively restored just off Kensington High Street by JV partners Topland, O&D London and Residence One. An impressive two-bedroom 1,098sqft show apartment designed by Residence One has been revealed, giving potential purchasers a sense of what is to come at this highly anticipated development.

Allen House can also announce that it has partnered with Harrods to offer a priority line concierge service for future residents. Future homeowners will be able to make reservations at any of the 23 restaurants within Harrods via a private concierge service.

Due to complete in Summer this year, Allen House will comprise 45 studio, one, two and three-bed luxury residences, and two penthouses offering unparalleled views across the city’s skyline. Several apartments will have direct access to the residents’ private landscaped garden by Kinland Design, with a selection on the upper floors benefiting from their own balconies, overlooking the green space and city’s skyline.

“It’s rare that a building of this age and scale is put up for sale. Allen House offered the perfect opportunity to return a handsome historic building to its former splendour and sensitively adapt the space for elegant modern living. Later this year, the full building will be complete and residents will be able to move in and enjoy all that the area has to offer.” comments Katrina Graham, Director at Residence One.

Originally designed in 1908 by Paul Hoffman, Allen House is being given an internal makeover to reflect its charming exterior, including comprehensive reconfiguration of rooms, the addition of a new penthouse level, amenity spaces and air-conditioning in all residences. The show apartment, which gives prospective buyers a first glimpse of the residential aesthetic and quality of fixtures and fittings, is situated on the ground floor complete with custom-made kitchen, bedroom & bathroom joinery by Concept Bespoke. A cosy banquette dining space upholstered in rich olive green is located in the kitchen, with a further two-bedrooms, large family bathroom and stone-clad en-suite elsewhere in the home. Each room is dressed with bespoke furniture and art work, designed by Residence One.

Buyers at Allen House will also benefit from a 24-hour concierge, a coveted RBKC residents’ parking permit (available to 45 apartments) and a one-of-a-kind Peloton gym, as well as a meeting room and one of the largest private gardens in the area.

Rupert des Forges, Head of Prime Central London Developments at Knight Frank, said: “The redevelopment of Allen House, a landmark late Edwardian mansion building, is a particularly exciting delivery for the Kensington market in 2024. The development will provide both the local market and discerning international purchasers with an opportunity to secure a classic London mansion flat in this prime location, with the added benefit of full front of house service and a rare landscaped communal garden for their quiet enjoyment.”

Josh Ayres, Head of London New Homes at Strutt & Parker, comments: “This beautiful historic building has been crying out for a sympathetic refurbishment, and the development team at Allen House has delivered just that. The resulting homes are sure to be well received by buyers who we find are increasingly setting their sights on high quality new residences within beautiful period buildings, attracted to modern amenities alongside historical features. Allen Houses ticks both these boxes, and its anticipated launch to market has already attracted strong interest from our domestic and international clients alike.”
