Property prices in London are often extremely expensive – the average property in the capital can easily cost over £550,000, which makes climbing up the property ladder a difficult proposition for the average person. Considering this high ‘average’ price, it’s no wonder that some of the most expensive houses and flats in the world can be found in London.
There’s a good reason, however, why these properties (costing millions of pounds) are so expensive; they are centrally located, offer some of the greatest views, are covered in luxury, and offer the finest of living standards. Still, are these properties really worth their values? Here’s a look at the most high-end properties for sale in London.
Beau House, St. James’s, SW1
This three-bedroom apartment will cost you about £15 million – it has two floors and was decorated by the famous artist Oliver Burns. This 4000-square feet place with its wonderful terrace offers a magnificent view of the city landscape.
One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, SW1X
If you’d like to spend a little more, you might want to reserve about £19 million for a place right next to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It’s a two-bedroom, three-bathroom property with three reception rooms.
Herbert Crescent, Knightsbridge, SW1X
Add another million (for the price of £20m) and you can avail yourself of a luxurious place with a passenger lift to allow easy access between 6 floors, 7 bedrooms, a private patio, and a swimming pool.
South Bank Tower, Southwark, SE1
There is a grand place in the South Bank tower, floors 39 and 40, which houses a stylish penthouse indeed. With a double-height living room, a levitating dining table, and a private garden terrace, this property will set you back £25 million.
Avenue Road, St. Johns Wood, NW8
The next step on the ladder is a property in North London, with the size of 11,157 square feet. It has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as a swimming pool and gym studio. And film lovers can enjoy the private cinema room. Price? £40 million.
And, finally, you can take it another step higher – if you’re willing to pay a cool £55 million, you may want to consider a seven-bedroom, six-bathroom, three-reception area townhouse located on Eaton Square, Belgravia, SW1W. Not only does it also house a roof terrace or offer a retractable roof, or include a winter garden, it also prides itself with its luxurious swimming pool in the cellar. It’s the height of luxury – at a hefty price, of course.
But if you don’t have that amount of cash to splurge on property, never fear. Thanks to commercial property experts like Commercial People, you can still easily find the property of your dreams, whether it’s in Birmingham, Plymouth, Liverpool, Inverness, or the heart of London itself.
