Positioned in an exceptional central location, this two-bedroom apartment, occupying the fourth and fifth floor of a handsome mansion block on Great Portland Street, offers a calm and quiet oasis in the heart of the West End. A comprehensive renovation by Malaysian architect Ping-kern Ng puts to use every inch of the space, with a series of cleverly conceived partition walls offering a flexible division of the primary living areas.
Entrance to the apartment is from the third floor via a communal stairwell; there is not a lift in the building. A second staircase leads up to the main living area, a naturally well-lit space that has been beautifully arranged. Bespoke bookcases are built into one side of the room, a simple and stylish integrated kitchen sits opposite. An oak floor runs underfoot.
The second bedroom, or office space, is also located on this floor, screened for privacy by an adjustable partition wall that can be easily opened out to reconfigure this area of the room. The main bathroom is also located on this floor.
A second carpeted staircase leads to the master bedroom with dual aspect windows providing uninterrupted natural light to both sides of the room. An en-suite bathroom has been ingeniously concealed with a bath and sink tucked behind one wall. The eaves of the building offer a generous provision of storage space. A resident parking permit is available on application.
Great Portland Street connects the residential areas of Regent’s Park and the West End. The immediate vicinity provides an excellent concentration of celebrated restaurants and the shops and boutiques of Bond Street and Oxford Street are within easy reach. Daunt Books, The Wallace Collection and The Ginger Pig butchers are proven highlights for Great Portland Street residents.
Transport links for the area are exceptional. The street is served at the northern end by Great Portland Street station, reachable by foot in just six minutes, offering links to the Hammersmith and City, Circle and Metropolitan lines. Oxford Circus and Bond Street underground stations are less than a fifteen-minute walk away.
