One of the most recognisable addresses in London, formerly home to the American Embassy, No.1 Grosvenor Square offers the idyllic residential setting for the privileged few

In today’s world, the luxury property market is reaching whole new levels of opulence. From Paris to New York, no longer is just a concierge and private parking enough to satisfy those looking for the ultimate in luxury. However there’s one new address set to compete with the best of them – No.1 Grosvenor Square in the prestigious London Mayfair district.

One of the London’s most recognisable addresses, formerly home to the American Embassy, the prominent historic building has been reinvented as residential, with Eric Parry Architects overseeing the architecture, plus Glenn Pushelberg and George Yabu, founders of Yabu Pushelberg, in charge of design. The property is perfectly situation on London’s grandest square, just around the corner from Bond Street and Mount Street, meaning you’ll be a stone’s throw away from the city’s finest restaurants, shopping, museums and so much more. Fun fact: The square has been home to many influential characters from history, including Samuel Johnson, who collated one of the first English dictionaries, and the celebrated British playwright Oscar Wilde.

Replete with luxury amenities and new technologies, the property’s elegant west-facing façade benefits from casts of light from dawn till dusk, while the interiors boast exceptional ceiling heights and grand balconies with sweeping views across London, offering the idyllic residential setting for the privileged few. Think colourful hand-painted wallpaper, antique French Art Deco side consoles, bespoke art displays and rooms geared towards entertaining, the result is a warm and enveloping space that comes packed with personality. In other words, the perfect home.

And it doesn’t stop there. No.1 Grosvenor Square has recently opened the Residents’ Club & Spa, housing a private gym, cinema, swimming pool and spa, defining the property’s strategic move towards health, wellbeing and holistic living accelerated by the pandemic. Exclusive to residents, not only will they enjoy thoughtful little touches (your favourite smoothie will be waiting for you on arrival at the spa, for starters), the spa’s world-class therapists provide everything from massages and facials to wraps and body scrubs – we HIGHLY recommend the full body Ayurvedic massage, but therapists are trained in everything from acupuncture and shiatsu to pre- and post- natal treatments – that are out of this world.

Elsewhere, a residence management, bespoke international travel itinerary creation and the booking of exclusive entertainment options across London, plus private office for business and family matters are also available. What more could you ask for?
