The ultimate London pad – living the high life in the world’s most captivating city.
For many, a central London apartment is the ultimate real estate goal. Owning a home in one of the world’s most exciting cities is an aspiration and undoubtedly carries a certain cachet. However, with a city the size of London, knowing what and where to buy can be something of a minefield. Thankfully, the stunning new Landmark Place development presents the perfect solution.
The luxurious apartments at Landmark Place, presented by Barratt Homes, are located just by Tower Bridge. The vistas are striking, with the River Thames and the Shard included in the breath-taking views of the iconic city skyline. The superb apartments provide the perfect London base for those looking to get the very best out of life in the city, whether as a fulltime home or as a stylish pied-à-terre for occasional use.
Life at Landmark Place is about far more than just its location, though. The newly dressed show home, prepared by Alexander James Interior Design, presents a tantilising glimpse of the lifestyle that’s on offer at this exclusive development.
Interestingly, the interior design mirrors the heritage of the area and of the site itself, perfectly blending ancient elements of life in London with ultra-luxe modern pieces. Nods to history include the extensive gin collection, the antique glass of the dining room light fitting and the TV unit that contains artisan panels made by the oldest vellum producers in London.
The show apartment also delivers some outstanding contemporary touches. The limited edition Damian Hirst butterfly print in the lounge area is a prime example. Ralph Lauren, Jaeger, Lulu Guinness and Vivienne Westwood pieces have also contributed to the overall effect, which oozes contemporary urban elegance.
“The luxurious tone at Landmark Place flows beautifully from the living room to the terrace,” comments Stacey Sibley, Creative Director at Alexander James Interior Design. “It’s offset by the backdrop of the world’s most captivating capital. Autumnal greys and mustard tones create an earthy base, while items like the nest of coffee tables bring forth the elegance of golden hues – perfect for capturing and reflecting the sunlight streaming through the floor to ceiling windows and balcony doors.”
The dining area is equally impressive and makes for an outstanding location to entertain friends. With the Shard in full view, the architectural backdrop speaks for itself. Meanwhile, the Alexander James team has used the soft curves of the pendant light above the oval glass table to balance the urban skyline with the comforts of home.
The study presents a fabulously modern feel, while also honouring London’s industrial past. Metallic finishes and a stunning feature desk from young designer Adam Collins bring to mind London’s old railway arches in the most contemporary of fashions.
The light-filled master bedroom also exudes a wonderful sense of luxury and comfort. The sumptuous bedding and textured cushions create a superbly inviting feel, while deep navy blue tones and golden elements in the amber cushions and the brass of the lamps add a sense of warmth and restfulness. In the background, the textured effect and contemporary gridlines of the feature wall somehow blend natural elements with a supremely urban edge.
“From the moment you step inside and begin exploring Landmark Place, the show home can’t help but charm,” continues Stacey Sibley. “This is more than just an apartment – it’s a representation of an entire lifestyle.”
It’s a lifestyle that resonates with those with a taste for the finer things in life. The contemporary style captures the very best of London living, yet without sacrificing the heritage of the fascinating city spread out all around it. This is a home where you can instantly imagine living – it’s elegant but inviting, with a sophisticated style that can’t help but turn heads.
Perhaps one of the most interesting achievements of the Alexander James Interior Design team, when it comes to the overall finish of the show apartment, is its attraction to a range of buyers. It offers the comforts of a full-time home, alongside the convenience of an occasionally used pied-à-terre. Such versatility is ideal for those with busy careers that see them travelling frequently – it can serve as a permanent base in one of the most prestigious and well-connected areas of London, or as an easily accessible bolt-hole whenever scheduling commitments permit. Either way, Landmark Place presents a stunning lifestyle choice for those with a flair for elegance.
Homes at Landmark Place are priced from £892,500 to £5,470,000.
