Mayfield launches boutique Kensington development Logan House
London developer Mayfield has launched Logan House, a boutique luxury development of 10 apartments at 1 Logan Place, Kensington, W8 6QN.
The development comprises a mix of one to four bedroom, new build apartments, each with a grand entrance hallway and outdoor terrace. All apartments have been designed to provide the very best living environments, utilising premium materials worked on by leading craftsmen, as well as top-of-the-range fittings and appliances. The latest smart home technology is also incorporated, comprising environmental, audio-visual and entertainment remote controls. In addition, Logan House is served by an underground car park and an elevator to all levels.
A concierge will be on hand to look after reception, car parking, social reservations and housekeeping, while the management team will maintain the building’s impeccable condition. Security has been an overriding consideration and woven into the architecture of the building directly, comprising the latest alarm systems, strategically reinforced entry points, as well as 24/7 monitored CCTV cameras, which all provide for residents additional peace of mind.
Joseph Mansour, Managing Director of Mayfield, said: “Few boutique developments come close to Logan House in terms of design, quality or historical importance. This new build scheme strikes the perfect balance between tradition and innovation; sitting seamlessly amongst local period buildings, whilst adding a vibrant new landmark to the street scene. The development has been further complemented through the incorporation of the latest home technologies and security systems, coupled with the finest materials and workmanship.”
The site that Logan House occupies boasts a fascinating and illustrious history. Prior to making way for this development, the site was home to the Michael MacOwan Theatre and the location of LAMDA, the oldest drama school in the UK, founded in 1861. Names such as David Suchet, Patricia Hodge, Richard Harris and Benedict Cumberbatch are all part of the rich history of Logan House. In recognition of the sites important history the building has been awarded a Blue Plaque from The Heritage Foundation which is proudly displayed on its façade.
Further along this quaint traditional Kensington Street is Garden Lodge, the former home of Freddie Mercury, the legendary leader of rock group Queen. Celebrated the world over, the deceased star now has a permanent shrine at the entrance to Garden Lodge that is routinely visited by adoring fans. Even in London, very few streets can boast such a recent colourful heritage as Logan Place.
Priya Black, Partner at Knight Frank residential development, said: “Logan House is a rare new build situated in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. New apartments within a small development are highly desirable and we anticipate buyers will be attracted by the scheme’s attention to detail and proximity to all that London has to offer.”
