The ‘pioneering’ ten-storey resi tower near Lord’s Cricket Ground, designed by Simon Bowden Architecture, is one of the world’s first cast aluminium-clad buildings.
The penthouse unit at The Compton, Regal London’s recent high-end effort in St John’s Wood, has hit the rental market at £4,250 per week. The “pioneering” ten-storey resi tower near Lord’s Cricket Ground, designed by Simon Bowden Architecture, is one of the world’s first cast aluminium-clad buildings, and has been a big hit with buyers; we previously reported on the 49-unit project last spring, as it reached completion and rapidly closed in on sell-out status.
A tenant is now being sought for the marquee apartment occupying the top two floors, which has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a study and a sizeable reception with bar and formal dining area; celebrity designer Kelly Hoppen has created the “calming” interiors, working with lashing of marble and installing bespoke sofas and furnishings. The outside space should be a significant draw in the current climate – four balconies on the ninth floor, and a landscaped terrace up top – and perks include secure underground parking for two cars, a gym and 24-hour concierge.
Ben Soane, Lettings Director at Aston Chase:
The duplex penthouse at The Compton is one of the most impressive apartments currently available to rent in St John’s Wood. The impeccable design by Kelly Hoppen makes the penthouse a desirable place to live with the roof-terrace providing highly-sought after discreet outdoor space. The Compton’s location in St John’s Wood affords a close proximity to the West End and centre of town, whilst still enjoying a position near to Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill.”
Mark Pollack, Director and Co-Founder at Aston Chase:
The Compton duplex penthouse is an example of the outstanding lettings instructions we have marketed over the past months. Despite the COVID 19 pandemic and ongoing travel bans, Aston Chase’s letting activity has increased year on year. This is due to the hard work of the team in difficult circumstances and the calibre of our rental portfolio. Properties such as the duplex penthouse atThe Compton will always be regarded as an exceptional lettings opportunity due to its design and the location which will soon be further enhanced by Regal London’s luxury new offering One St John’s Wood which is set to be the best new block in North West London when delivered at the end of 2022.”
