Super-prime development outfit Wilben has unveiled its latest project – the reinvention of a Grade II listed second-floor apartment on Knightsbridge’s Pont Street.
The firm, which recently delivered a stonking £32m townhouse on Belgravia’s Chester Square, has turned the 2,750 square foot space at No. 38 into something pretty special, with direct lift access leading out into a circular atrium/reception lobby, a 32-foot reception, kitchen/dining room, and three chunky bedroom suites.
Brothers William and Benjamin Samuels, who run Wilben, tell us they personally created the spec for virtually every one of the apartment’s fittings and furniture pieces, from the chandeliers to the chairs, to ensure a properly unique finish…
William Samuels: “38 Pont Street is undoubtedly one of the best lateral apartments on the London market right now. Post-Brexit, buyers are looking for the ‘wow’ factor – and this apartment has it in spades. From the elegant atrium to the spacious bedrooms through to the great outlook and outstanding location, the property makes for an ideal investment opportunity and a really cool home.
“Having been commissioned by a private client to undertake the development management of the property, we have been responsible for every detail. This has included all design and construction through to the final presentation of the property which has been finished off to the highest specification.”
The asking price has been set at £11.95m, a rate of £4,345 per square foot.
