Opening up the rare opportunity to live opposite Buckingham Palace, this new real estate development is set to be one of London’s most sought after properties, and the only private residence to command views over Buckingham Palace Gardens. This major project by luxury real estate developer Northacre is scheduled for completion in 2019, with homes available to buy now.
The architecturally impressive Grade II listed property will be home to 72 state-of-the-art apartments, situated within a sprawling 300,000 square feet island-site at the heart of St James Park. Having been built in 1890 as one of London’s first landmark hotels – hosting guests of Queen Victoria – the historic structure exhibits a variety of architectural styles, with interiors that are now being transformed to combine this heritage with modern amenities and contemporary design.
As well as the prestige owning a residence here brings, the developer will also provide an enviable lifestyle, owing to the development’s wealth of lavish facilities and state-of-the-art amenities. A well-being space will span 6,500 square feet of the interior, and, exclusively for residents’ use, it will encompass a gym, personal training suites, treatment rooms and a 20-meter pool overlooking the property’s landscaped courtyard.
With more than 10,000 square feet of lifestyle space, the residence will be home to a cinema room, entertaining suite and library, and a restaurant for residents to dine in, in addition to the elegantly designed residences, which range from one-bedroom apartments to the penthouse. Following on from the success of Northacre’s previous developments, The Lancasters and The Bromptons, with a reputation for focusing on craftsmanship, heritage and innovation, No. 1 Palace Street is set to be one of the most desirable addresses in London.
