Is this London’s most expensive student digs? Inside the £12.5 million Mayfair pad
The £4000 per week apartment on Park Lane is being pitched at wealthy young people looking for student digs
The Mayfair estate agents, Wetherell, that have 80 Park Lane (a plush property worth a whopping £12.5 million) on their books report that around 80 per cent of enquires for the 3,540 sq ft three-bedroom townhouse have come from students from the Gulf region – regardless of the fact that rent is close to £200,000 a year.
The Park Lane- which first became a fashionable residential address back in the eighteenth century – property is the only house on the prestigious street with its own private front door.
Step aside to be greeted by a spacious hallway and a stunning bespoke glass staircase connecting all three floors, leading downstairs to the vast reception room perfect for entertaining with its high specification and open plan kitchen with white gloss units and integrated Miele appliances.
Stairs lead up to an opulent master bedroom suite on the upper floor, boasting a large dressing area, ample cupboard space and palatial master en suite with a walk in shower and separate bath, natch. What’s more, the (world’s luckiest) student can also enjoy breathtaking views of Hyde Park from the private west facing terrace which spans the width of the property.
To top it off, the apartment also benefits from two further lavishly decorated ensuite bedrooms, one on each floor of the apartment (ideal for hosting guests), under floor heating, air conditioning and an on-site 24/7 concierge.
Surely the most opulent student digs ever, 80 Park Lane “will appeal to an ultra-high net-worth person from the Middle East or Asia who wants to launch themselves into Mayfair society,” says Peter Wetherell, chief executive of Wetherell. “It’s leisure living, a business base and the ultimate address.”
