Whether for business or pleasure, London has a huge amount to offer potential residents. From the leafy streets and high-end boutiques of western enclaves such as Knightsbridge and Notting Hill to the edgier East end or the City with its proximity to London’s financial hubs and superyacht marinas, wherever you choose to buy you won’t be disappointed. Plus, with an abundance of new luxury properties under construction and the pound currently cheaper against the dollar and Euro, there’s never been a better time to invest. Here’s our guide to the hottest London addresses to buy in now…

Beach House, Hammersmith

If you are a fan of boats with oars as well as those with sails, it’s hard to think of a much more enticing proposition than the Beach House. Sitting just metres from the towering green pillars of Hammersmith Bridge, this Georgian property offers a prime viewing spot for the annual Boat Race (the bridge is often a crucial point in the duel between Oxford and Cambridge universities).

As well as its viewing credentials, the Grade II listed double-fronted family house has six bedrooms and five bathrooms. It was originally a boat house situated right on the river’s edge before the tow path was laid and the initial structure became part of the basement of the current house when it was built around 1760. It is still packed with period features, lovingly restored, including fruitwood banisters and mouldings. At the rear of the property sit mature landscaped gardens with a hot tub. To the front of the house, across the walkway, is a private river pier, where you can moor a boat for direct access to the Thames.

Beach House is listed for sale for £8,750,000 with Savills.

Mansion House, Westminster

Mansion-House-Westminster

Sitting right in the heart of the Establishment, just a stone’s throw from the River Thames, the resplendent Mansion House has a rich political history. The property, which was designed by architect Horace Field, was built in 1905 and initially served as the London office of the North Eastern Railway Company. In 1982 the Liberal Democrats (then known as the Social Democratic Party) moved in – and they didn’t pack up their filing cabinets until 2011. It was at this stage that London-based luxury developer Saigol DDC stepped in to transform the building into a seven-bedroom family home, while maintaining its historical charm.

The renovation, aided by craftsmen who had previously worked on Windsor Castle and the Palace of Westminster, incorporates a host of striking period features, such as a sweeping central staircase and ornate gilt cupola. Despite being Grade II listed, it is packed with modern amenities including an eight-person lift and a wellness area complete with a 10 metre swimming pool. As well as its dramatic interiors, Mansion House, which is 15 metres wide, has an Italian garden and roof terrace, which offers views of Big Ben, the House of Lords and Westminster Abbey.

Mansion House is listed for sale for £36 million with Knight Frank.

Wardian-Canary-Wharf

A collection of luxury apartments by EcoWorld Ballymore, Wardian London combines modern architecture with innovative landscaping in one of the city’s most lucrative business districts. Composed of two residential towers, the buildings themselves, designed by Glenn Howells Architects, will rise to 50 and 55 storeys over South Dock, with unrivalled views over Canary Wharf and the City.

Wardian London’s penthouses, the development’s most luxurious residences available in two or three bedroom duplex configurations, offer residents the ultimate oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Interiors by a specialist team of designers draw inspiration from the development’s unique eco-concept and the apartment's private sky garden. Using an earthy colour palette to give the decor an artisan’s touch, unlacquered marble, stone and brass, as well as organic timber are used in abundance throughout the open plan living areas and spacious bedrooms.

All Wardian London residents will also have access to The Wardian Club and its exclusive facilities, which include a 25 metre open air swimming pool, gym, cinema, business lounge, two restaurants, a vibrant rooftop sky observatory and a 24 hour concierge service.

Penthouses at Wardian London are listed with price on request with EcoWorld Ballymore.
