RENT OR BUY A PIECE OF 19th CENTURY HISTORY AT ONE OF LONDON’S FIRST MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENTS

09.05.19

Harrods Estates are currently marketing two newly refurbished three-bedroom apartments in one of Knightsbridge’s most iconic developments; Park Mansions. The building dates back to 1897 when it was one of the first mixed use developments in Knightsbridge. Whilst one of the apartments is available to rent for £1,600 per week, the second property is on the market for £2,750,000. According to the latest Land Registry statistics*, the average property price in Knightsbridge is £3,185,546, whilst the average rent is £2,400 per week. This makes the residences at Park Mansions a very attractive option for buyers and renters alike.

Knightsbridge has been long established as a one of the key locations in central London for wealthy property buyers who appreciate the area’s world-class array of shops including the Harrods store as well as Hyde Park, Michelin-starred restaurants and renowned cafés. Well-respected schools and universities are within a mile radius of Park Mansions, including Hill House International Junior School, Francis Holland Girl’s Schlool, The Knightsbridge School, The Royal College of Music and Imperial College. Those seeking cultural experiences favour Knightsbridge for its abundance of cultural landmarks such as the Royal Albert Hall, Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and the Science Museum.

Shaun Drummond, Sales Director for Harrods Estates comments: “With so many lifestyle offerings on its doorstep, the development’s location, in the centre of Knightsbridge, is very highly sought after. The apartments at Park Mansions seaminglessly combine history with 21st century living. Whilst the building benefits from modern conveniences such as 24 hour porterage, security monitoring system and passenger lifts; the apartments themselves offer generous proportions with high ceilings, parquet flooring and large bay windows, which has helped to maintain their historic charm.”

The rental property, Park Mansions, is a stunning three-bedroom, three-bathroom lateral apartment. It has an abundance of natural light creating a spacious feel with wooden flooring and a neutral colour palette throughout. A top of the range kitchen opens out to a double reception room, with study and an extra room supplying ample of space for entertaining and relaxing.

Purchasers can opt for Park Mansions, which is a spacious three-bedroom apartment, featuring two en-suite bathrooms and a separate shower room. Located on the sixth floor, this residence has been meticulously refurbished throughout. 1,025 sq. ft. in size boasting a spacious reception room which incorporates a bespoke kitchen with high specification appliances, concealed behind folding pocket doors.

Following Park Mansions’ creation by architects Frederick Yeats Edwards and Robert Clarke Edwards, the development housed 40 shops as well as over 100 one- and two-bedroom apartments, which were occupied by soldiers and those seeking close proximity to Knightsbridge’s flourishing businesses. Throughout the centuries, Park Mansions has stayed true to its mixed-use past as the building’s groundfloor is currently home to Burberry.

The area surrounding Park Mansions used to be known as High Road in the 1860s, which had a reputation of being the least salubrious place in Knightsbridge. A succession of music halls, beer stores, oyster saloons and taverns could be found, with nightly meeting places for disordly men and women. It is a great contrast to the well-respected and high-profile image that Knightsbridge has today.
