The elite address places the new residential complex right on the doorstep of Buckingham Palace and thereby in the very heart of London. The view out of the windows of No. 1 Palace Street is truly unparalleled as it catches the stunning façade of Her Majesty’s official London residence and the expansive Palace Gardens.
Furthermore, the royal location bestows a number of important London landmarks upon No. 1 Palace Street residents, putting them at walking distance of Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and 10 Downing Street.
Also, the close proximity to the Crown means that the stunning greenery of St. James’s Park, Hyde Park, and Green Park are within a 15-minute walk. Even though the area is popular with tourists, the vast grasslands and numerous trees of Hyde Park can provide a shelter from the buzzing streets.
In addition, No. 1 Palace Street benefits from the close proximity to the centre of the city, where all the major roads meet, as you can reach any part of London from there. It takes 34 minutes by car to reach Heathrow Airport, using the A4 and M4 routes. Also, the new complex offers a wide array of public transport options with stations such as Victoria, Green Park, Hyde Park Corner, and St. James’s Park in less than 15 minutes away.
Owing its triangular form to the corner location between Buckingham Gate and Palace Street, the residential complex is comprised of 5 mid-rise buildings named Buckingham Gate, Beaux Arts, Stafford Place, Palace Street, and French Renaissance.
Each building exhibits a certain architectural style, including Italian Renaissance, Beaux Arts, French Renaissance, Queen Anne, and Contemporary. The former is represented by Buckingham Gate. The light-coloured façade is adorned with balustraded balconies, classical columns, exquisite pilasters, and rows of narrow windows with square lintels.
Named after its style, French Renaissance is covered with big smooth grey bricks and full-height windows, accentuated by white frames and embellished with intricate black railings. The corner of the building is marked by a tower-like construction with immense crescent-shaped floor-to-ceiling windows, that provide breathtaking views.
Queen Anne architecture finds itself reflected in Stafford Place with its bright brown brick façade, streaked with white lines. The full-height windows are accompanied by thin black railings, curved in beautiful patterns.
The façade of Palace Street is streaked with rows of sleek narrow windows. The contemporary aesthetic accentuates the straight lines of the building with bronze elements. The railings mimic the form of the building with thin vertical lines.
The five buildings of the complex shelter the elegant courtyard garden, where residents can gather and enjoy the beautifully landscaped space.
Visitors are greeted by a 24-hour concierge with optional valet service. To ensure top security, No. 1 Palace Street is equipped with a CCTV system and a digital video entry system.
The ground and lower ground floors of the renaissance building feature a graceful restaurant.
To keep you fit and healthy, the complex offers a collection of top-notch facilities, including a vitality pool, a sauna, a 200 sq ft gym, 2 personal training rooms, and three general training rooms.
For leisure activities, No. 1 Palace Street has reserved a 3,500 sq ft entertainment suite, where you can find a private library, a superb 14-seat cinema, and a fully-serviced private lounge.
No. 1 Palace Street offers a collection of 74 luxurious units, ranging from one- to five-bedroom apartments. The interior of the buildings reflects their respective styles. However, the apartments also demonstrate a perfect fusion of the classical aesthetic and contemporary features, equipped with cutting-edge technologies.
