London is my favorite city in the world. If I could afford rent, I would love to live in London forever. London has so many things I love – museums, royal palaces, theater and most of all cricket. As reported by many news outlets in the last couple of days there is now a clear winner for the title as “London’s Most Expensive Flat” that you can rent. With 9,307 square feet of living space, One Hyde Park in the tony Knightsbridge area gets the bragging rights, with a weekly rent of £45,000 or yearly at £2.3 million (approx. $3.8 million).
For that much of rent you get to live temporary in a well-appointed 5 bedroom apartment that is part of the One Hyde Park development. It boasts magnificent views of both Knightsbridge and Hyde Park.
Apartment takes one full floor on the building divided into two wings. Its five bedrooms are located in the city wing with living and reception area located in the park wing. The master bedroom offer views over Knightsbridge, stretching from Westminster in the east to Chelsea Harbor in the west. Master bathroom features marble basins walk-in showers with body jets and rain showers. There are four additional bathrooms with same luxury features.
Even if your stay is a short one you can entertain guests on a grand scale, it has a formal reception room with a balcony that gives 180 degree magnificent view over the Hyde Park and the Serpentine. It also has a large dining room with seating for 10. For an informal and relaxed get together there is the media room and the study.
A well quipped large kitchen fitted with Bulthaup units and Gaggenau appliances offers extra dining space. There is also a separate preparation kitchen also equipped with best appliances.
As befitting such a luxury apartment building, One Hyde Park offers a list of services and amenities incomparable to any other, all managed by Mandarin Oriental. Those include spa and gym facilities, the Park Library and the Serpentine Suite.
