Spanning 28ft x 20ft, the light-filled drawing room is a glorious and traditional space, with three sets of double doors allowing easy access to a park-facing balcony – perfect for entertaining. The principal bedroom suite is positioned away from the other bedrooms allowing for privacy.

The large entrance hall seamlessly links the drawing and the dining rooms, creating a sophisticated and cohesive entertaining space. A guest cloakroom, bar and coat storage compliment the space.

Hampshire House was built in the early twentieth century and is located at 12 Hyde Park Place, W2, directly opposite Hyde Park. Hyde Park Place is rich in historical significance, with Charles Dickens having lived just a few doors down at No. 5 Hyde Park Place in early 1870, so that his daughter Mary could be in town for the “London Season.” This apartment, located at No. 12 Hyde Park Place, still shares the exact same view over Hyde Park that Charles Dickens would have enjoyed while writing “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,”: his final novel before passing away a few months after its publication.

Situated on The Hyde Park Estate, Hampshire House is positioned on the northern edge of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, two of the world’s premier city parks. The numerous boutique shops, restaurants and other leisure amenities of Connaught Village are in the immediate vicinity of the property. Oxford Street, Marylebone and The Portman Estate are also nearby with Mayfair and Knightsbridge a pleasant walk away across Hyde Park. The transport links on offer are outstanding. The Central Line at Marble Arch and the Circle, District, Bakerloo, Elizabeth and Hammersmith & City Lines at Paddington are within a few minutes’ walk, providing convenient access to all parts of Central London and beyond.

Connaught House and Wetherby, two of the best junior schools in London, are located on the corner of nearby Connaught Square and Bryanston Square respectively.
