A truly exceptional apartment on the 5th floor with a full length west-facing balcony, gated grounds, off-street parking and 24hr security.
Such is the demand for this building, that it is now over 20 years since an upper floor was brought to the open-market and this fifth floor apartment occupies perhaps the best position of all. With a triple aspect (East, South and
West), it has spectacular views across Kensington, Palace Green, Kensington Palace and into Kensington Gardens and is flooded with natural light. Measuring approximately 2,762sqft
(257sqm), the accommodation includes a beautifully grand entrance hall with views towards the palace, whilst on
the front there is a formal double reception room with dual aspect and a separate family/TV room, both of which
open onto the largest balcony of any apartment and looks out to the west. Going further into the property you will find the kitchen/breakfast room, two guest double bedrooms (one with
an en suite shower room), a further single bedroom, guest shower room and cloakroom whilst at the rear is the magnificent principal bedroom suite with its own sitting room and looking out over Kensington Palace and the park beyond.
Designed by the architect Durward Brown in an early Edwardian style and completed in 1905, York House is arguably the most prestigious and sought-after mansion building in Kensington. Set in gated grounds and looked after by a team of uniformed porters 24hrs a day, it consists of only thirty
apartments (all of which have the right to park one car in the surface level car-park) and is synonymous with grand period lateral living, with impressive volumes (over 3m ceiling heights) and neighbours Kensington Palace.
