Britain’s most expensive one-bedroom flat has gone on the market – for a mind-boggling £10 MILLION ($15 MILLION). The luxury pad at One Hyde Park, the most prestigious address in London has been dubbed the ultimate ‘pied-a-terre’ and is so expensive that a simple waste bin takes up £6,300 ($9,300) worth of space. It’s unfortunate that there will be no room for guests at the property, there’ll be a sitting room though, the room upstairs could be regarded as the sitting room for socialising, with the area dominated by an open-plan living and dining room. There is also a separate toilet, the one at the lower level of the duplex apartment is the sleeping area with a huge double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
The cost of the kitchen alone is about 7 million pounds, but then, the expenses do not end at purchasing the flat, a stamp duty of additional 1.1 million pounds has to be paid on this flat and this is in addition to 2,000 pounds as ground rent and 32,000 pounds as an annual service charge.
Residents will get 24-hour SAS-trained security, an in-house maid service, same day laundry and dry cleaning, room service from the Mandarin hotel as well as a private temperature controlled wine store. The building offers the use of a swimming pool, sauna, squash court a cinema and an ultimate concierge service. Talking of these figures, having deep pockets alone may not be the key needed for this property, one has to have a strong heart too to spend this kind of money on a one bedroom flat in what could be described the swankiest address of London.
