One Hyde Park Apartment is UK’s Most Expensive Home

By Paul Joseph

A luxurious London apartment has earned the distinction of becoming the most expensive home in the UK after being valued at an eye-popping £160 million.

Located in upscale Knightsbridge, within the ultra-exclusive building One Hyde Park, the home is spread across the top two floors of block B of the famous development, and features an array of lavish facilities, including two wine cellars, two underground parking spaces and balconies overlooking the park.

Among the plush extras to be found elsewhere in the property are a swimming pool, sauna, gym, golf simulator, and valet service.

There’s also 24-hour security courtesy of SAS trained staff, panic rooms and bulletproof glass, along with in-house maid service, room service courtesy of the next door Mandarin Oriental, same day laundry and dry cleaning.

Images reveal that the flat also offers enviable views of London thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows, while the colour palette is muted in a style that’s typical of luxury hotels.

The £160 million recorded price exceeds the previous UK house price sale record of £140 million for Park Place, a stately home near Henley-on-Thames.

The flat is currently owned by Nick Candy, who developed One Hyde Park with his brother Christian, which was completed in 2009.

The previous One Hyde Park record selling price was £140 million for the penthouse in block A in 2014, and the £137 million sale of a triple-storey penthouse in 2011.
