Park Crescent: the glorious return of a Nash masterpiece
Park Crescent may be one of the most architecturally striking streets in London, yet it had an inauspicious start in the 1800s. Things went from bad to worse when it was bombed in the 1940s and rebuilt in the 1960s, but now a new scheme aims to restore it to its original Regency glory.
Behind the Nash façade the homes are spacious and modern. The principal properties include the Grand Crescent apartment (flat No 29) on the first floor, with a vast sitting room, ceilings more than 4m high and six arched windows overlooking the park. The four-bedroom, 4,500 sq ft home is on the market for £19.5 million.
In the lobby there are residents’ libraries and lounges, while in the basement there is 9,000 sq ft of amenities, including a 20m swimming pool, gym, spa, private cinema and business lounge. There is also a 24-hour concierge and security.
