Leading developer Berkeley is set to unveil a brand new collection of luxury apartments in central London's famous City of Westminster, home to the country's seat of Government and on the doorstep of royal palaces, world famous galleries and exclusive residential developments and squares.

Situated within a sought after area in prime central London, Abell & Cleland is within easy reach of the River Thames and the renowned Tate Britain. The immediate location boasts green squares and is within walking distance of Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster, Downing Street and St James' Park.

This exquisite luxury development is a sophisticated addition to the Westminster streetscape, providing an imaginative and architecturally impressive transition from the great buildings of state immediately to the north, to the more residential scale of Millbank to the south.

Paul Vallone, Managing Director at Berkeley (Urban Renaissance), said: "Abell & Cleland is without doubt one of the most eagerly anticipated developments in this much sought-after part of Westminster.

"Not many residences can rival its location, and fewer still, the quality of the design and finish which is the hallmark of Berkeley. These are some of our most luxurious homes, befitting the grandeur of the location."

Abell & Cleland comprises 206 one, two and three bedroom bespoke apartments, carefully designed to complement its iconic and grand location. It is made up of two strikingly modern separate buildings set within private landscaped grounds.

Abell House is the larger of the two buildings and upon arrival, residents and visitors will walk into a dramatic entrance lobby, opulently designed and filled with light. Triple-height glass panels allow the light to stream in, whilst contemporary glass chandeliers suspended from the ceiling add to the ambience.

Its striking design is complemented with bespoke interiors offering a new standard of exclusive living. Each apartment has been thoughtfully designed to reflect its prestigious location and features the finest luxury fittings, creating an elegant and warm living space. The use of stone, metal, marble, wood and oak features contribute to the opulent feel of the apartments.

Individually designed and high-specification kitchens fuse fine contemporary lines, modern design and outstanding outlook. Composite stone worktops, limestone or parquet flooring and top-of-the-range Kuppersbusch appliances form a fittingly rarefied and beautifully functional hub for home life.

The bathrooms are finished in marble and limestone and fitted with fine white porcelain suites. High-specification fixtures, including wiring for television in the en suite master bathrooms, recessed LED down lighters and contemporary polished chrome fittings, make for an atmosphere that is calm and relaxing.

Whilst exquisitely designed light-filled bedrooms are the perfect escape from the hustle bustle of city life with plush, soft carpeting and full height oak doors ensuring the harmonious and tranquil ambience is maintained. Some apartments in Abell House come with a dedicated dressing room between the luxurious master bedroom and marble bathroom.

A luxury leisure facility is available to all residents of Abell & Cleland comprising a full-featured gymnasium, pool, sauna and changing facilities. Residents will also be able to conveniently undertake international business by using a fully-equipped business suite at their disposal day and night, situated in Cleland House. A dedicated 24 hour concierge service will attend to residents' needs, whilst residents can also benefit from secure car parking facilities.

As well as being located on the doorstep of some of the most iconic landmarks in the country, Abell & Cleland is also close to intimate public parks, cafes, restaurants and shops. Residents can also enjoy taking a stroll to one of the many Michelin Star restaurants close by, with Westminster being home to no less than 36 highly acclaimed restaurants, including Roux at parliament Square and The Cinnamon Club.

Residents can also find an extensive range of luxury retail brands close by and can enjoy shopping at world renowned Saville Row, Burberry at Bond Street, Burlington Arcade, Old Bond Street and Chopard, New Bond Street.

Abell & Cleland is also in close proximity to some of the best schools and universities in the city, including, Westminster School, Knightsbridge School, Imperial College London and University College London (UCL).

Westminster is at the hub of London's local and national transport network. Nearby Westminster Underground Station provides access to Circle, District and Jubilee lines, and within the borough of Westminster, virtually all of London's 11 Underground lines may be accessed - as well as the river bus service at Westminster, Embankment and Millbank piers. The service, which runs along the River Thames every 20 minutes during peak hours, connects London Bridge, the famous London Eye and Tower station.
