Brand new release of exclusive London mansion block homes

November 06, 2019

Berkeley Homes will unveil an exclusive collection of new homes at Asquith House, a contemporary interpretation of traditional mansion block living, at their landmark London Zone 1 development, West End Gate, W2.  

A 18 storey red-brick building, Asquith House has been uniquely designed by renowned architects Squire and Partners. The overall aesthetic is inspired by period mansion block living that is synonymous with Marylebone and Mayfair and has been reimagined into stunning modern lateral homes designed for the 21st century.

The building is ideally located within this striking development with direct views of the city or the stunning landscaped gardens, which include a linear water feature and lush greenery.

Due to complete in 2022, Asquith House comprises a selection of Manhattan, one, two, three and four bedroom apartments.

The lateral apartments at Asquith House have been thoughtfully designed with spacious open plan interiors that elegantly flow into each other for entertaining and relaxing. The building’s unique exterior and location has informed the character of its interiors. Homes boast sophisticated design and sleek luxury finishings including herringbone patterned wooden flooring.

Each home offers floor to ceiling windows that harness natural light whilst capturing expansive views. The majority of homes also include private balconies or terraces, a traditional feature of period mansion blocks and providing residents with outdoor space to relax.

A stand out feature of the development is the on-site amenities and leisure facilities. Two dedicated floors have been created exclusively for residents’ use in The Westmark building, which is located across the landscaped gardens from Asquith House. The 20m swimming pool features a fluted ceiling with ambient lighting providing picturesque views of the landscaped gardens. Residents can also take advantage of the dedicated spa area with relaxing loungers, sauna and steam rooms, alongside a fully equipped gym with personal trainers available for bespoke fitness programmes.

All residents have access to a 24-hour concierge on hand to deliver a seamless living experience. A private dining room complete with catering facilities is available for dinner parties and business meetings, alongside a 24-seat private cinema ensuring all residents have exclusive access to state of the art entertainment on their doorstep.

Located in the heart of Zone 1, West End Gate is positioned between the tranquil waterways of Little Venice and the stylish mansions of Marylebone. Renowned for its timeless charm and refined lifestyle, it is considered to be one of London’s most desirable places to live with a unique combination of fashion, culture and entertainment whilst retaining a friendly, village atmosphere.

West End Gate offers exceptional transport links and is ideally located for easy access to central London and across the Capital. For underground travel Edgware Road station, served by the Bakerloo, Circle, District and Hammersmith & City Lines, is just a two minute walk from the development. National Rail stations are less than 10 minutes’ walk with both Marylebone and Paddington Station providing quick and easy access beyond London. From December 2018 Paddington Station will be served by Crossrail. Transport links are also excellent for international travel with journey times of 24 minutes to Heathrow Airport by train*.

With over 760 acres of parkland available to explore at nearby Regents and Hyde Park, as well as the oasis of tranquillity to be found at Little Venice, West End Gate residents are able to enjoy the best of central London living with the added benefits of green space.

Simon Howard, Sales Director, Berkeley Homes Central London comments: “Asquith House brings a unique proposition to the area as residents can enjoy the traditional, period mansion block values in a contemporary apartment. They will also be able to take advantage of the facilities that come with a luxury residential development whilst living between the heart of the West End and Little Venice.”

Asquith House is scheduled to complete in 2022. Prices at Asquith House start at £650,000 for a Manhattan Apartment.
