80 Park Lane Apartment, London: GBP 4,000 per Week

Park Lane may be the most expensive street on Monopoly, but private residences on this most famous of London streets are actually rare as hen's teeth.  That's why aspiring property moguls should make a bee-line for this remarkable apartment.  Part of a grand mansion block, this three-storey, 3,540 square feet apartment uniquely has its own private entrance on Park Lane, which is very handy for discrete entries and escapes. 

What the agent says: "Meticulously designed for luxurious city living this property can be accessed via its own entrance on Park Lane or via the main building entrance located on Park Street.  Once inside you are greeted by a spacious hallway and an imposing Bespoke glass staircase connecting all three floors, leading downstairs to the vast reception room perfect for entertaining with its high specification and open plan kitchen with white gloss units and integrated Miele appliances.

Stairs lead up to an opulent master bedroom suite on the upper floor which has a large dressing area, ample cupboard space and oversized master en suite with a walk in shower and separate bath.  In addition there are also lovely views of Hyde Park with its own private West facing terrace spanning across the width of the property.  The apartment also benefits from two further en suite bedrooms rooms, one on each floor of the apartment."

What we love:
The extensive (and spectacular) use of glass on floors, ceilings, partitions and balustrades to create a space full of light.  Skirt-wearing guests should be warned.

What we would do:
This apartment is destined to be a party pad.  We would go for a glamorously dark and seductive design scheme and turn the basement into a disco lair. 

The apartment at 80 Park Lane is being marketed by Wetherell.

With such a unique space one should put caution to the wind and go for a distinctive design scheme.  Statement pieces such as the Toadstool sofa from Missana, the Mafalda armchair from Moroso and the Mini Clay occasional tables from Desalto would work a treat.

 
 

Make a grand impression with lighting.  The Lucky Eye OLED wall light / mirror from Blackbody would look spectacular in the hallway.  Add a cluster of Twee.T suspension lights from Casamania and a few Lampscapes floor lights from Frederik Roije for a touch of drama.

 
 

For the most glamorous party accessories look no further than Ghidini 1961.  The Here (Thimble) ice bucket, There (Pushpin) candlestick and Knotted Cherry container are all made in solid brass for an extra luxurious touch.
