Going up! Luxury townhouses return to vogue for the super rich
Opposite the entrance to Regent’s Park, you’ll find some soon-to-launch new townhouses that have one of the most illustrious settings in London. Along with 67 large lateral apartments priced from £2.9m, the nine new two- to four-storey mews houses costing from £5.35m through Savills and Knight Frank form part of Regent’s Crescent, CIT’s redevelopment of the iconic sweep of Grade 1 listed white stucco buildings designed by John Nash in 1820.
Exactly two centuries on, buyers can enjoy a modern take on luxurious Regency living, with a pool, cinema, and eight acres of private gardens at residents’ disposal, and newly landscaped gardens surrounding the new-build two or four-storey townhouses of up to 2,500 sq ft at the rear.
“There is enduring appeal to the townhouse, with its clear separation of entertaining and private family areas, and access to unique, private views high above the streetscape,” adds Helen Westlake, creative director at Millier, interior architects to Regent’s Crescent. “A townhouse grows with its family, with the ability to have different activities and moods on different floors. There is also the exclusivity of having an entire floor dedicated to a master suite, which makes the townhouse enduringly luxurious,” she adds.
