The world’s oldest hotel company and a pioneer of timeless hospitality bring elegance and luxury to London—at the gateway of Belgravia—with The Peninsula London and twenty-six exquisite residences under the direction of award-winning Peter Marino Architects.
Each residence combines outstanding design and the highest quality with the seamless service that is synonymous with The Peninsula. The result is an unsurpassed lifestyle offering that presents itself once in a generation in the heart of London. The design is inspired by the area’s heritage, befitting one of London’s most celebrated addresses, and matching the owner’s aspiration of building a Grand Hotel at the gateway to Belgravia.
The Peninsula will offer a selection of expansive one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments and a penthouse. The apartments offer a rare scale for London with two-bedroom properties starting from 2,500 sqft and three bedrooms over 4,000 sqft. These will be some of the last new build properties of this size in prime central London following the recent size restrictions issued by Westminster City Council in 2019, limiting new build homes to 1,614 sqft.
The highlight of the location is the views across the most celebrated parts of London, including the Wellington Arch, the treetops of Buckingham Palace Gardens, and the iconic skyline beyond. All form a backdrop to the interiors via vast full-length glazing, extending the full 3 meter ceiling heights in the principal living spaces. Surpassing the notion of the branded residency, properties are fully integrated into the hotel building, which is fully owned and managed by The Peninsula, seamlessly fusing peerless hospitality and ultra-prime real estate to introduce a luxury lifestyle offering that has never been seen before in the capital.
With bespoke interior architecture by Peter Marino, the residences will feature exclusive specifications including options for open-plan or zoned kitchens. The open-plan kitchens will showcase oak cabinetry and the zoned kitchens will have copper-clad cabinetry, both of which will exhibit marble countertops and built-in appliances by Wolf, Sub-Zero or Miele.
The Peninsula is synonymous with unrivalled, world-leading service and the new London residences will offer a seamless extension of the renowned hospitality, at home and away. All aspects of the address are tended to exclusively by Peninsula staff, from the concierge to housekeeping, and overseen by a dedicated Director of Residences (previously the director of resident services at One Hyde Park) and the Managing Director of The Peninsula London.
Residents will have access to all five-star services of the hotel, including in-residence dining from any of the four new venues, the chauffeured Rolls Royce car fleet, laundry and dry cleaning, and daily housekeeping. Most notably, the highly personalised concierge service, synonymous with The Peninsula’s global reputation, is on hand for residential needs and all lifestyle requirements—whether at home or anywhere in the world, from dinner reservations in New York to dry-cleaning in Tokyo.
Residents will also have private, direct access from their homes to the wider destination spa of the hotel, along with the new collection of dining venues and experiences. The team also provide property management and maintenance while away for the utmost convenience and peace of mind. Regardless of remaining very much under the radar of London’s luxury property scene, The Peninsula’s legacy is well established in this market. Some 60% of the properties have been secured off-market, largely to North American-based customers where the brand is familiar through its Fifth Avenue and Beverly Hills locations.
The London Residences aim to bring together the most exquisite five-star facilities, mirroring those of the hotel but with absolute exclusivity for residents, with security and privacy as a top priority. For more information, visit peninsula.com
