London is home to some of the UK’s most luxurious houses, from historical mansions to modern masterpieces.
Attracting celebrities, esteemed architects, and designers alike, London is a hub for all things magnificent, high-end, and aesthetically pleasing.
Let’s take a closer look at what are, in our opinion, five of the most to-die-for homes in the capital, including three of our own developments.
One of our contemporary private commissions, this light and bright home with Swedish-inspired interior is designed for a family life of luxury.
We collaborated with the esteemed IQ Glass to bring to life the vision of a fully glazed rear wall, effortlessly merging indoor and outdoor space. With its timber exterior finish and glass that reflects the trees, it emerges from the grass like a piece of nature with a modern twist – and the Swedish timber is sustainable for that extra eco touch.
Inside, pendant lights make a statement in the kitchen and the glass staircase flows up to a generous second floor.
At 5,500 square foot – none of which is wasted – this private commission inspires with its detail and airy spaces.
It doesn’t get more dramatic than an apartment above St Pancras Railway Station.
The majestic penthouse spans 3 floors and 6000 square feet, with 3 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
Boasting high ceilings, complex beams, and gothic architecture, this is an entertaining space like no other. Coming in at £11.5 million, this luxury property is complete with a bar area, dining and music spaces, two kitchens, and even a separate annex for staff.
With an intriguing past, the St Pancras penthouse used to be the water tower for the Midland Grand Hotel. It was designed by Gothic revival architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott, and is a “piece of history,” as the listing agent Jamie Shalson Marshall said.
An apartment fit for Alexander McQueen? It’s bound to be the perfect mix of luxury and style.
Before his passing, McQueen started a renovation of the apartment at Dunraven street which sits within a Grade II listed building previously owned by English author, P.G. Wodehouse.
Aspire completed the renovation started by McQueen, executing it in style with a bespoke Gaggenau kitchen, wine cellar, and black wooden floors throughout. A magnificent chrome staircase spirals up to a roof terrace like no other in Mayfair, making for a unique entertaining space.
Dripping in statement chandeliers, this luxury property comes in at £6 million and holds the current record for highest £/sq ft achieved for a basement or 1st floor flat in Mayfair.
This row of spectacular townhouses is home to a whole host of big names and celebrities, including Victoria and David Beckham.
Their £31 million mansion contains a private gym, wine cellar, and living area for their eldest son.
With state-of-the-art appliances throughout, grand staircases, marble floors, and perfectly pruned gardens, their Kensington home is the height of luxury!
This development in Wimbledon is family luxury at its finest (if we do say so ourselves).
With a bar, wine cellar, and cinema, everything in this house is bespoke to suit the owners. We collaborated with Control4 to bring them a smart home equipped with best-in-class security so the owners are able to control every aspect of it from wherever they are.
Bespoke cabinetry and custom mouldings make this a typical Aspire property – i.e. not typical at all. Uniqueness is our forté, and it’s there in spades at Ridgway Gardens.
Here at Aspire, we don’t compromise when it comes to luxury and uniqueness. We design and create homes that meet the exact needs and tastes of the owner, using the finest materials, expert craftsmanship, and great attention to detail.
