Newly renovated two bedroom apartment in the highly desirable area of Mayfair. This fourth-floor flat is ready to move into and allows the busy professional refined luxury with ample space for socialising, while privacy is maintained by separate en-suite bedrooms. The surrounding parks, shops, restaurants, cinemas, cultural attractions, and train and bus services also provide maximum convenience for commuting and socialising.
You are immediately greeted by the elegant Georgian exterior that echoes the historic buildings extending along Hertford Street. The luxury extends inside as Carrington House is served by 24-hour porter, with apartments reached via a lift.
The moment you walk through the front door into the foyer, you are struck by the bright and open interior, which exudes Georgian-inspired charm while still being modern and sophisticated.
On your left, double doors invite you into the generous living space the property offers, linked together by wood-effect laminate flooring, which is both low-maintenance and stylish. The long living room promises cosy movie nights in, but also lends itself to impromptu after-work parties, with enough space for your favourite furniture as well as your family and friends.
A built-in cupboard and glass shelving create storage and a place to display treasured pictures or heirlooms, while the wide casement window draws the eyes to the characterful terraced houses and the London skyline. High ceilings give a sense of airiness even in the summer months, and the resulting vertical space is crying out for pictures or artwork that reflects your personality.
Turning back towards the foyer, you will notice the perfect nook for a dining table and chairs, so there's no need to shy away from a dinner party or an intimate romantic evening. This dining area could also be a useful spot for younger members of the family to catch up on homework while within sight of the kitchen. With spotlighting above, it could also convert into desk space for remote workers to set up for the day.
Stepping into the galley kitchen, you will find all the facilities you need within reach to whip up everything from breakfast pancakes to a three-course meal. With plenty of wall units and room under the worktops for utilities, an oven and electric hob, the kitchen caters to the home cook as well as busy professionals who like to keep things simple. Classic black workshops, splashback, and black tiled floor ensure a polished feel with the quickest clean, and with spotlighting natural light from the back door, the kitchen is a bright and vibrant place to spend your time.
Across the foyer, a charmingly decorated WC with loo and basin serves the living area, providing convenience for guests.
Bedroom one is a light and airy double thanks to another casement window and has useful built-in storage. A neutral decoration scheme has scope for you to try your hand at design and transform the room into anything from a plush guest suite to a teenager's haven. With a fully-tiled en suite with inset shower, there's a definite sense of luxury, which offers privacy to visitors or occupants.
The master suite occupies the other side of the apartment, carpeted throughout offering a hint of retreat and escape from the busy world. Close the hall door on the rest of the flat and head into your personal sanctuary, stopping perhaps to hang up your jacket in the built-in cupboard in the hallway.
The bedroom itself has a ceiling-height window, flooding the master with light, as well as being the perfect place to gaze up at the stars, hand wrapped around a steaming mug of tea or a glass of wine. With soft lighting above and plenty of plugs for lamps, you can control the ambience of your boudoir to match your mood. Built-in triple wardrobes help smooth out the busy morning routine, keeping your work clothes crease-free and the bedroom clean and tidy. With room for bedside tables either side, there's space for bedtime reading material, drinks, and electronics for two.
Essential to any retreat, the en-suite offers a bath for those bubbly, candlelit moments, as well as an overhead shower for busier days. Thanks to a heated towel rail above the bath, you can reach for your towel without so much as a shiver.
An inset window allows in light and acts as a convenient store for lotions or other beauty essentials, and large white tiles add to the feeling of lightness and space. The morning routine is quick work when polishing up in front of the marble-effect sink unit with overhead mirror, which can accommodate yet more toiletries and useful bathroom items.
This is the perfect pad for any busy professional who is looking for a stylish home that provides a work-life balance in the middle of the city.
