British property tycoon Nick Candy is putting his huge, 2 floor London penthouse with views across Hyde Park on the market.
The apartment is at the swanky One Hyde Park, the trophy project developed, designed and managed by firms controlled by Candy and his brother, Christian.
The home is by far the most expensive property in a city, where the next-priciest listing is £54.5 million.
Estate agencies Savills and Knight Frank are the agents, although it’s not “officially on the market”. Jonathan Hewlett of Savills said,
“This is a truly exceptional penthouse over two floors of this exceptional scheme. And, as its address suggests, it commands fabulous views over Hyde Park.”
At 18,000 square feet, it has a double-height reception room with a glass fireplace, wrap-around terraces on both floors, 5 bedrooms, 2 studies with home offices, audio-visual equipment and meeting areas, a champagne room, as well as a cocktail bar and a temperature-controlled wine room that holds 750 bottles.
There’s a games room, a home theater, gym, and an entire spa with a treatment room, sauna, steam room, massage room, plus a manicure and pedicure area. (What, no pool?!)
Last month, another penthouse at One Hyde Park – a raw unfinished space– for an estimated $150 million.
But for a quarter of a billion, couldn’t you take over two floors of The Dorchester or The Savoy? For like 100 years…?
All I can think is, in order to enjoy this, you need to be a billionaire, and if you are (except for the views) you think like…
