1920’s glamour with the penthouse at 12 Charles Street in Mayfair
Luxury developer Rigby & Rigby have created a 1,800 sq. ft. two-bedroom penthouse at 12 Charles Street in Mayfair, with Art-Deco and contemporary inspired features.
Currently on sale through leading Mayfair estate agents Knight Frank and Wetherell, the penthouse fuses Art-Deco and Art-Nouveau style finishes with contemporary and modern elements, in a stylish and luxurious, newly refurbished residence. Between the 1890s and 1910, Art-Nouveau architecture and design, later Art-Deco (1920s) were in vogue.
Peter Wetherell, CEO of Wetherell, said: “The penthouse at 12 Charles Street embodies the opulent style of Art-Deco and Art-Nouveau, with gold trim panelled walls, marble floors with bronze inlay, and glass-blown wall lights. This property provides the perfect Mayfair home for a young couple or astute investor.”
From the spacious hallway and inner foyer, lacquered, full height doors open into a spacious reception room, with heated marble flooring finished with bronze inlay. There is a coffered ceiling with feature in-lay, low hanging chandelier and adjacent Art-Deco wall lights and mirrors to reflect the light throughout.
The open plan entertaining area consists of kitchen, dining and living space positioned over dark, bespoke parquet flooring. The kitchen is beautifully crafted with Calacatta marble feature wall panel, worktops and island, complete with chrome basin and Gaggenau appliances. The storage within the kitchen is concealed behind bespoke cabinets.
The dining area comes with a six-seat dining table with custom-made feature bronze chandelier above. There are four large windows and a coffered ceiling allowing in an abundance of light, creating the perfect setting for entertaining. The living area contains a feature marble fireplace with high-gloss lacquer polished backdrop. Guests can relax and enjoy entertainment with the integrated 55 inch LOEWE ultra HD screen, with Sonos surround sound.
The master bedroom and guest bedroom are positioned at opposite sides of the penthouse, both have fitted wardrobes and luxurious en-suite bathrooms.
The master bedroom is decorated in a neutral colour scheme and contains a bronze inlay panelled feature headboard with Art-Deco style nightlights. The en-suite bathroom features twin cantilevered washbasins, stand-alone oval bath and glass panelled walk-in shower. The residents will benefit from state-of-the-art Toto washlet – a Japanese made electronic WC. The mirrors come with vanity lighting and there is also heated towel rails.
The separate study home office provides the perfect place to work and has a maroon palate, with bamboo effect walls, high gloss lacquered desk and cabinets.
Residents can enjoy the security of a 24 hour uniformed concierge and video entry system. Accessible from the ground floor there is a tranquil communal courtyard garden including koi-carp pond.
