Leading developer St Edward has launched a new concept in modern living, a split-level Show Home from the prestigious Cityhouse Collection at their flagship Kensington Row development. This will offer discerning buyers the unique opportunity to experience first-hand the convenience of development living with the traditional comfort of a split level home.
Designed by renowned architects Squire and Partners, the Cityhouse Collection comprises of just 14 stunning split level homes. The overall aesthetic has been inspired by the classic mews houses that are synonymous with the Royal Borough, creating luxurious contemporary homes that perfectly combine traditional and modern architecture.
The homes belonging to the exclusive Cityhouse Collection are located within the architecturally impressive Thomas Earle House building. The Cityhouse Collection offers spacious one to three bedroom split level homes, ranging in size from 1,022 sq. ft. to 2,013 sq. ft. each with a private sunken garden ranging in size from 69 sq. ft. to 295 sq. ft. providing a relaxed and peaceful living environment.
Unlike many new build developments offering lateral living, these homes have a feature glass staircase leading down to elegant bedrooms and bathrooms on the lower ground floor. Invoking the atmosphere of an urban oasis in the city, Kensington Row has dedicated 17% of its 1.3 acres to green space.
The show home has been conceptualised by leading furniture and interiors specialist, Julia Palmer Interiors. Spanning 1,620 sq. ft., the two-bedroom split level apartment has a spacious open plan living area with a large adjoining kitchen featuring a stone peninsula and Küppersbusch integrated stainless steel appliances.
A unique design element of this home is the spacious hallway with a striking glass staircase leading down to the two large bedrooms, bathrooms and study that occupy the lower ground floor. The master bedroom features a dramatic bespoke headboard with gold and teal textured furnishings alongside a bespoke walk-in wardrobe and a luxury en suite bathroom featuring bespoke stone, veneer vanity units and polished chrome finishes.
The overall feel is that of a sleek yet calming sanctuary within the home. Residents will also have direct access to their own private sunken garden, a peaceful area to relax and unwind al fresco. Throughout the home, high ceilings and full length windows are a striking feature that not only flood the space with light but also offer direct access onto the landscaped courtyard.
Inspired by the classic mews houses within Kensington, the interiors of the show home have been expertly appointed with a neutral, colour palette complemented by elegant furnishings in matte gold and teal to create an elegant yet contemporary atmosphere that will appeal to professionals and families.
Kensington Row will offer an excellent array of on-site facilities, including a private swimming pool and treatment rooms alongside a state-of-the-art gym, fitted with the latest sporting and work-out equipment. For entertainment, there is a private cinema for the sole use of residents and a concierge service attending to residents' every need.
Buyers at Kensington Row will be able to take advantage of the wealth of shops on their doorstep, from high-end department stores such as Harvey Nichols to the boutiques at nearby Sloane Street and the designer shopping of Bond Street. Also in easy reach of the development, is world famous Harrods and Kensington Church Street, a renowned hunting ground for antiques connoisseurs.
The development is ideally located for international travel and is served by both superb rail and air connections. High Street Kensington Underground station, a short distance from Thomas Earle House, is only three stops from Knightsbridge and five stops from Bond Street. In addition, there are convenient transport links to Heathrow, Gatwick, City Airport and St Pancras International station which provides Eurostar services to mainland Europe.
