Further to the housing market being restarted, Wetherell have been instructed to sell an elegant £3 million two bedroom 1,266 sqft apartment which opens directly onto the West End’s largest roof garden, a 120 ft long turfed 9,600 sqft green space, located directly above London’s famous Gagosian Gallery.
Perfect for outside relaxation in this age of COVID-19 and safeguarding, the second floor apartment is being brought to the market for the first time in 15 years, located in Grosvenor Hill Court, the iconic nine storey modernist apartment building, situated directly above the Gagosian Gallery.
Fronting onto on Bourdon Street and Grosvenor Hill, the tower and double height podium below, were built in 1964-1968 by legendary Mayfair developer Edward Erdman to designs by Bryan & Norman Woodwood Architects, starchitects loved by PM Harold Wilson. Grosvenor Hill Court was designed to bring 60s cool and contemporary flair to historic Mayfair.
Accessed from a spacious entrance hall, the cleverly designed modernist apartment has a large 26.3 ft long reception room which spans the entire width of the apartment with large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the landscaped roof garden. A door from the reception room provides direct access onto the 0.22 acre roof garden which is arranged with lawns, walkways and seating areas.
The large roof garden is perfect for relaxation, outdoor entertaining, sunbathing, pilates, outside gymnasium/exercise and is even large enough for golf practice since the large residents-only green offers a unique driving range with over 1,066 square yards of teeing areas, fairways and putting greens.
Extremely bright, with large windows throughout, the apartment has a fully fitted separate kitchen, a master bedroom suite with built-in fitted wardrobes and ensuite bathroom, and a second bedroom and guest cloakroom/powder room.
Located directly below the apartment and the roofgarden is the podium containing the world-famous Gagosian Gallery, opened in 2015, and designed by Richard Rogers’ Caruso St John Studio led by Adam Caruso.
Located on the apartment owner’s doorstep, the 18,000 sqft Gagosian Gallery has 16 ft (4.8m) high ceilings and provides two 60 ft (18m) long gallery spaces and two smaller interconnecting areas, with cutting edge LED lighting design by Arup, designed to showcase the world’s most famous artworks. As part of the 2015 gallery opening, the podium exterior was remodelled by architectural practice TateHindle, creating strikingly refreshed ground level facades.
Peter Wetherell, Chief Executive of Wetherell says: “In this age of COVID-19 and safeguarding buyers are wanting homes with an abudance of outside space where they can relax, exercise and socialise whilst maintaining safeguarding and social distancing. Opening onto the largest roofgarden in London’s West End, this unique apartment at Grosvenor Hill Court is the only home in Mayfair where you can walk out directly onto a green which is large enough for relaxation, socialising and a range of leisure activities.”
Grosvenor Hill Court has a gated entrance with a smart entrance foyer with concierge, communal areas, porterage and two passenger lifts. Located just off Berkeley Square, and between Davies Street and Bond Street, the apartment building is ideally located for the boutique shops, Michelin starred restaurants and galleries of Mayfair.
The apartment is presented in excellent condition priced at £3,000,000 (long 174-year lease) with a service charge of £2,385 per quarter for the communal facilities and residents-only roofgarden.
