Country houses for sale

The new London apartments bordering Holland Park

No 80, Holland Park is high-profile property developer Christian Candy’s most important project since One Hyde Park. Carla Passino takes a look to see if it lives up to the expectations.

Bordering Holland Park to the north, this group of 25 properties — a mix of apartments, penthouses and townhouses — reinterprets the area’s Victorian architecture in a contemporary, luxurious key. They are on the market via Knight Frank, starting from £2.6 million for a two-bedroom apartment.

The Christian Candy development’s properties have all been individually designed — some have ceilings that are more than 11ft high — and feature Gaggenau and Miele appliances in the Bulthaup kitchens, limed-oak wood flooring and Carrara-marble bathrooms.

Every property has access to outdoor space in the form of balconies, terraces, courtyards or gardens, with the rear of the development opening directly onto Holland Park.

Matching all this are exceptional services and amenities, from the 24-hour concierge to the 55ft pool with spa facilities and a gym designed by Olympic triathlete Tim Weeks.

No 80 Holland Park is for sale via Knight Frank, from £2.6 million for a two-bedroom apartment — see more pictures, or enquire with the agent for further details.
