Ever pondered where you’d be able to rent if you were very, very wealthy?
Sure, after a lottery win you could just buy a mansion in the countryside or invest in a swanky pad that’s all yours.
But are you really ready to give up the fun* and excitement** of renting in London? We think not.
So, for those with cash to burn, we present to you a one-bedroom flat in London, on the market for the bargain price of £14,083 a month (£3,250 a week).
As you’d expect at that price, this flat is in a posh part of the capital city.
It sits right in Knightsbridge, west London, meaning whoever rents the property would be right next to Hyde Park – not a bad spot for your daily jog.
Also close by is Buckingham Palace, so you could pretty much count the Royals as your neighbours, Royal Albert Hall, and the Natural History Museum.
Plus, your local high street would be home to Harrods and Selfridges. Nice.
The apartment is on the fifth floor (on the south-facing city cyde) of the One Hyde Park development, which has a communal spa, pool, and gym for residents.
The building also has a 24-hour concierge, a residents’ lounge, a library and its own cinema. You’d barely have to leave.
The flat itself is pretty snazzy, too, having been designed by Candy & Candy.
It has 934 sq ft of interior space and comes fully furnished with everything from a sizeable sofa to a sleek dining setup.
There’s just the one bedroom and one bathroom, so it’s probably best for a single person or a couple. You could probably fit another bed in there, though, if you’re really keen for a trio setup.
Fancy features include a marble bathtub, a big flatscreen TV, and floor-to-ceiling windows to let you take in the views.
Mark Tunstall Property, who are marketing the flat, describe it as an ‘exceptional’ opportunity, highlighting the building’s ‘unparalleled range of services and amenities, all managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotels’.
So, there you have it. If you have your heart set on the largest of London rents, here’s your chance.
Alternatively, you could put the £28k you’d save in two months by not renting this place into a deposit on a house. At least then you’d be able to paint the walls.
