With the start of the new school term in London a new trend among the ultra-wealthy is becoming more and more apparent. Residences in some of the most prestigious burrows with master bedrooms, walk-in closets and balconies with spectacular views are marketed for up to £21,000 a month to the growing ranks of rich overseas students.
Potential tenants will be treated to a variety of luxuries that the infamous Fountain House is known for. Located in the posh residence that is adjacent to Hyde Park most apartments range in size from 1,600 sqft to over 2,000 sqft. Two-bedroom apartments in the same building can cost upwards of £4.5million to buy.
The exclusive location and posh interior of the pads has generated serious interest amongst the offspring of the global super-rich. All apartments have been recently refurbished by Alexander James Interior Design and exhibit spacious living and dining rooms, fitted with wood-strip floors and mood lighting. The open-plan kitchens and breakfast rooms have stone worktops, integrated German appliances and frosted glass splash-backs.
Beautifully furnished to an exceptional level of elegance and contemporary design, the residences provide plenty of space for quiet relaxation as well as socializing. The master bedrooms are fitted with deep carpets, walk-in closets and en-suit bathrooms complete with marble floors, twin basins, vanity tops, free-standing bathtub and walk-in double shower.
Some come with their own private balconies with stunning views of Hyde Park and are spread across two floors. The building itself has a 24-hour CCTV and porter service as well as entertainment areas and cosy lounge rooms.
The nine-storey Fountain House is an exquisite piece of architecture from the distant past that has been perfectly preserved and refurbished to meet the exacting standards for comfort and luxury of the ultra-wealthy as part of Mayfair’s residential revival.
