The Thackeray Estate and Argent Design are delighted to launch ‘ONE Brompton,’ their premier development under the ONE brand. ONE Brompton is a characterful, four storey, Victorian building on the corner of Old Brompton Road and Cresswell Gardens which has recently undergone a four year renovation.
Retaining the original façade the property has been re-mastered to provide 17 bespoke high specification 1 and 2 bed apartments as well as an elegant lateral penthouse, one of the finest in London, with prices starting from £895,000. Where ONE Brompton stands out is in its design. Argent has focused on utilising all the spaces efficiently, crucial in the conversion of heritage buildings, whilst ensuring maximum luxury. With a background in yacht and private jet design, where everything has a place and clever storage is essential, Argent create a holistic approach to turn-key property with a consideration for storage and elegance throughout.
Founder Nicola Fontanella comments on the inspiration behind the design “we understand that buyers today are willing to sacrifice oversized rooms for a fantastic location. As such, we have used intelligent design techniques, from our experience in designing yachts and jets to ensure that luxury, comfort and the latest requirements for modern living are delivered in the ONE Brompton apartments.”
The kitchens in each apartment are bespoke to ensure space efficiency and maximized storage including cupboards under the breakfast bar and in the utility cupboard, clever shelving for items such as cleaning products, golf clubs and suitcases. In the bedroom sleek, full height storage units mirror both sides of the bespoke beds with trademark ‘prayer niches’ incorporating a shelf, USB ports and subtle reading lights. Furthermore, storage under the bed, full height wardrobes and bathrooms designed with recessed cabinets behind the mirror and shelves in the showers for essential shower amenities are also included. Made to measure sofas have been fitted throughout the show apartments, media walls ready for residents to plug in TVs and hit the Netflix button, not forgetting a mirror and console unit in the entrance as residents arrive home to drop keys and post.
At street level, a smart entrance and elegant planting similar to what you might find outside Annabel’s or George’s of Mount Street complete the experience. Inside residents will be greeted by a concierge and beautifully dressed corridors with bespoke alabaster lighting for a welcoming and sophisticated experience on every floor – all features you might expect to find in properties of a much higher price point, akin to a 5 star hotel. When the day is done you arrive home to find that the on site concierge has unpacked the Ocado shop, collected your dry cleaning and made your dinner reservation locally in one of the many popular restaurants.
Interior design throughout is neutral but luxurious with a nod to the heritage of the building and a focus on quality, single signature materials such as Serpenggiante marble tiles, engineered oak timber, Tabu Vaneer cabinetry and Nero Assoluto Granite bathroom wall tiles and kitchen worktops. Quality technology and appliances have been used at every touch point including video controlled entry systems on the front door for each apartment, Miele appliances, low-energy dimmable multi source lighting system, Caple wine coolers as well as underfloor heating and full air conditioning.
The building provides a mix of unit types, with thirteen suites, three 1-bed apartments, one 2-bed lateral apartment and one 2-bed duplex apartment. On the top floor an exquisite penthouse, commands the full floor plate of the building with direct lift access, a master suite with dressing room, two further ensuite bedrooms and three roof terraces with pretty views of the Boltons and back streets of South Kensington.
ONE Brompton is perfectly positioned just minutes from the boutiques and popular restaurants of Brompton Cross, King’s Road, Knightsbridge and the Fulham Road. Local highlights include the new Daylesford Organic at Brompton Cross, Blakes Hotel and other independent retailers such as the renowned Parson’s Nose butcher, acclaimed Spanish tapas restaurant Cambio de Tercio just a stone’s throw from the property, Brad Pitt’s favourite Indian restaurant Noor Jahan and Nam Long renowned for its ‘Flaming Ferrari’ cocktails.
Robert Adams, Residential Development Partner at Knight Frank comments, “ONE Brompton Road is a rare offering for this part of the capital. The beautiful period building is located within reach of all that London has to offer, notably, Harrods and London’s great museums. The boutique and discreet scheme is an ideal pied-àterre or centrally located bolthole for savvy investors and owner-occupiers. With a
stunning penthouse with real wow factor on the top floor, the development has something to offer a wide range of potential buyers.”
