Britain’s most expensive one-bedroom flat has gone on the market for £10m.
The luxury flat at One Hyde Park has been dubbed the ultimate ‘pied-a-terre’ and is so expensive that a simple waste bin takes up £6,300 worth of space.
The lower level of the duplex apartment is the sleeping area and boasts a huge double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Upstairs is for socialising, with the area dominated by an open-plan living and dining room.
The one-bedroom apartment in Knightsbridge has now been put on the market for £9.9 million – 56 times the average house price in England and Wales, and £4.3 million more than the next most expensive one-bedroom property in the capital.
The kitchen takes up around £700,000 of space – the same amount as a large family home in most cities.
Residents get 24-hour SAS-trained security, an in-house maid service, same day laundry and dry cleaning, room service from the Mandarin hotel and a private temperature controlled wine store.
Whoever buys the flat will have to hand over £1.1 million in stamp duty. They will also have to pay £2,000 per year in ground rent along with a £32,000 annual service charge.
Simon Barnes, an independent property consultant said, “It is an amazing place and it is not like buying a one-bedroom flat. It is a very modern, high quality build; you have the Mandarin next door and the ultimate concierge.”
“The sort of person who will look at it is likely to be the sort of person who spends a lot of time in a hotel. But for £10 million you could get quite a few nights in the finest hotel suite.”
