The £4,250 pw apartment is set within a ‘pioneering’ new development near Lord’s Cricket Ground.

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.”

Ellie Goulding Lists $7.7M London ‘Mews House’ After Returning from Country Quarantine — See Inside!

Ellie Goulding’s stunning London home has been listed for sale for $7.7million. Nestling on a cobbled street in the upmarket Marylebone neighborhood of the British capital, the 2,961 sq.ft. architect-designed home is arranged over five floors and combines traditional brick walls and parquet flooring with a range of modern touches such as a mezzanine floor, lightwells, and a series of dramatic, floor-to-ceiling windows.

It also has a rich history: known as a ‘mews house,’ it was originally built in the 19th century as a stable for horses and to provide living space for stable-hands and carriage drivers in the rooms above. Mews houses can be found all over the UK and were generally built close to the grand townhouses of major cities like London and Edinburgh. Almost all are garden-less.



The “Love Me Like You Do” singer — who released her fourth studio, Brightest Blue, in July —returned to the mews home after social distancing with her husband, Caspar Jopling, at their cottage in Oxford amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It was quite nice to have that escape and be in my own kind of world for a bit,” Goulding, 33, told PEOPLE in July, about the slower pace of life in Oxfordshire, adding that it allowed her to “think about my weaknesses and flaws but also my strengths and powers.”

“I’m still a little bit insecure, but I’ve got more love for myself than ever,” she said after her return to the busy streets of London. “I’ve learned things about myself that I perhaps would never have learned in the world I was in with touring and working as hard as I did.”



The lower ground of Goulding’s home provides plenty of space and style, thanks to its elegant lightwell and state-of-the-art kitchen designed with muted silver cabinets. It also has a double-height ceiling and windows which stretch all the way to the ground floor.

A dining area that seats eight and a casual living room area are nearby, as is the basement, which houses two bedrooms opening onto an outside patio, a shared bathroom, and a utility room.



Goulding’s three other bedrooms are found on the first and second floor, which is reached via a modern spiral staircase. Both have en-suite bathrooms, with the main bedroom providing views onto the historic cobbles below. “The modern interior of the home alongside its location in one of Marylebone’s most sought-after mews streets makes it a very unique offering,” says Mark Pollack, co-founder of Aston Chase realty which is listing the luxury home.



“The design is ideal for a London professional looking for an oasis in the heart of the Capital.” Better still it’s just a stone’s throw from the high-class shops, restaurants, bars, and boutiques of Marylebone High Street, while the leafy surroundings of Regent’s Park and the department stores of Oxford Street are no more than a five-minute walk.



Prime London Agencies Making Hay While The Sun Shines

Aston Chase in top form with £175m in sales over the past five months.

Boutique firm Aston Chase joins other boutique operators reporting a bumper run of deals, after chalking up £175m worth of sales in the last five months alone…

As new data reveals the extent of the post-lockdown sales boom in PCL, we’ve been hearing of more agencies making hay while the sun shines.

The priciest postcodes to the north and north west have been among the top hotspots for£5m-plus deals this year, and NW1-based Aston Chase has reported achieving £175m in sales since government restrictions were eased at the end of May

The boutique firm has chalked up an impressive tally of 30 deals in the last five months alone, and has another 15 placed under offer.

Highlights from the recent flurry included the former home of hair tycoon Lesley Clarke home in St. John’s Wood (asking £11.95m, above), former BoE Governor Mark Carney’s £5.5m family house in South Hampstead (below), and chunky properties on Greenaway Gardens and Avenue Road – both of which achieved close to their £14.5m asking prices.

Hamilton Terrace

Apartments sold included a duplex on Hamilton Terrace (for just under £4m), and a new-build on St Edmunds Terrace (£2.85m).

Unsurprisingly, buyers have been displaying a penchant for larger homes with outdoor space since the pandemic took hold, and 60% of the recent sales have gone to UK nationals. International buyers have been notable by their absence, although the team managed to seal a deal on a £7.35m house on Hamilton Terrace entirely via WhatsApp and Facetime in one of the handful of sales involving a long-distance purchaser.

The firm’s rental department has also had a good year. Transactions were up between April and October (50 compared with last year’s 34), with top-notch family homes in St John’s Wood and Regent’s Park continuing to command between £6,000 and £7,000 a week.

Mark Pollack, Director and Co-Founder at Aston Chase told PrimeResi: “Aston Chase have secured an impressive number of sales and rental transactions in recent months and although there was much uncertainty surrounding the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been overwhelmed by the demand and volume of sales. The market is now showing some signs of slowing down as we approach the end of the year partly due to pent up demand having been satisfied. Nevertheless, we predict a further likely surge in prime London residential property transactions when foreign buyers, most notably from Hong Kong, India and elsewhere in Asia, are able to travel following restrictions being relaxed.

“Although a threat of a no-deal Brexit and tax hikes remain, the COVID-19 pandemic has put a lot of things into perspective for people who now want to prioritise their family life. The majority of the population have realised that COVID will be with us for the immediately foreseeable future and this is the new reality. Consequently, instead of putting everything on hold, buyers are now acting with a lot more urgency to secure their dream homes and spacious properties in London with good outside space remain in strong demand.”
