Of lavish proportions, Number One Walpole Mayfair
is arranged over three floors, with its own street level private entrance, and internal lift. A statement of style
and prosperitywithin this historic setting, the vast apartment, whch is set over 9000 square feet, is designed on
the grand scale of 18th Century opulence and is ideal for formal entertaining.
The impressive main entrance hall is paved with marble beneath an ornamental canopy of gold and crystal
which adds a touch of theatrical magic. The marble extends throughout the apartment, whose floors are
linked by the dramatic sweep of curved staircases.
This ground floor is as much about functional living as it is about style, comprising a formal drawing room, a
palatial kitchen with all the latest high spec appliances, a formal dining room and private study. The winding
stairs lead fluently to the first floor which is exclusively dedicated to the vast and sumptuous master suite,
whose bedroom, his and her bathrooms and dressing rooms, as well as a private reception room, occupy the
entire level. Two further generously sized en-suite bedrooms are located at lower ground level, where a private
cinema, gym and adjoining bar are also to be found.
Order, balance and symmetry are key to this majestic apartment, offsetting flamboyant grace notes within
a restrained classical context. These qualities are combined with the latest in home technology to ensure an
elegant interplay betweenmodern-day living and a classical aesthetic. High ceilings lend themselves to gilded
medallions, cornices andmouldings to add the splendour and detail of texture that is painstakingly applied to
every plane. In this setting, furnishings themselves become ornate pieces of art. Voluminous windowdressings
of high quality silk, taffeta or velvet complement the upholstery and ornamentation, adding their own tactile
appeal. Gilt mirrors andmasterly lighting lend the finishing touches, to reflect and enhance this magical world
of opulence and dynamic design.
