Price: £24.5 million (US$32.4 million)
This modern two-story penthouse is tucked away on a quiet street in affluent Knightsbridge, with easy access to its many shops and restaurants as well as Hyde Park.
Along with 5,417 square feet of bright interior space, the apartment boasts 1,600 square feet of outdoor space on open-air, entertaining-friendly roof terraces.
“This really is a proper penthouse,” listing agent Simon Barnes said. “It’s at the top of the building, and it has proper ceiling heights, proper floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace.”
“It’s quite unusual to find an apartment like this in central London,” he said. “You really are in the heart of things.”
The apartment is on the fifth and sixth floors of the modern Cheval House on Montpelier Walk, which is north of Brompton Road in the center of the Knightsbridge section of London.
The iconic Harrods luxury department store and the Victoria and Albert Museum are right nearby, and the apartment has stunning views of the Brompton Oratory, a large neoclassical Roman Catholic church.
“This is a relatively small building,” with only eight flats, Mr. Barnes said. “It’s not one of these big impersonal apartment buildings.”
The apartment has a large master bedroom suite on the fifth floor, with a private terrace, his-and-hers dressing rooms and en-suite bathrooms. The three large reception rooms are on the sixth floor.
“The kitchen has good ventilation and great natural light,” Mr. Barnes said.
“You get uninterrupted sunshine all day long,” he said. “You’re not so high up that you can’t use the terraces.”
The 5,417-square-foot apartment has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. There is also 1,600 square feet of outdoor space on roof terraces.
The property has a gymnasium, direct elevator access to both floors, underfloor heating, air conditioning throughout and private parking for two cars.
“You are right in the heart of the shopping district of Knightsbridge,” Mr. Barnes said. “You are close to all of the theaters, close to all of the restaurants.”
Bordering the large and beautifully kept Hyde Park, Knightsbridge is an affluent area with grand Victorian homes and leafy garden squares.
“You can walk everywhere—you don’t really need a car,” Mr. Barnes said.
“It’s a two-minute walk to Hyde Park,” he added.
