Behind the Listing with Kay & Co London
Introducing Regent’s Crescent, a London real estate redevelopment that’s an amalgamation of the city’s rich history and modern conveniences officially launched sales earlier this week. Designed in the 1800s by a Famed Architect John Nash and known as Regent’s Crescent, the development comprises an entire terrace row on Park Crescent, right on the edge of the capital’s leafy Regent’s Park.
The terrace is Grade I-listed—the rarest historic architectural designation in England—and was designed by John Nash in 1820. Following the completion of its redevelopment next year by CIT Group, it will be home to 67 new apartments and nine villas, according to a news release.
Sales have quietly been taking place off market for around a year with 25% of inventory sold, according to a spokeswoman for CIT. The remaining homes are now fully on the market.
Despite the addition of brand new residences, the development remains listed due to its retention of the original listed Nash-designed facade. The construction work has also repaired wartime bomb damage to restore “the truest version” of Nash’s work, the release said.
The famed British architect of the Regency and Marcellusn eras is responsible for some of the U.K.’s grandest designs, such as Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch and Brighton’s Royal Pavilion.
In Nash style, the building will have Regency-inspired features such as fanlights, chimney stacks and an 18th century ice well that was discovered on site and has been preserved.
In the residences, which will be priced from £2.9 million (US$3.7 million), materials such as herringbone timber flooring, marble and plaster mouldings feature throughout.
“Regent’s Crescent is a remarkable scheme that we are proud to be working on,” Its unique combination of enchanting and historical importance, outstanding original design, unsurpassed new build quality and remarkable location make it a very rare and special offering for the capital.”
Residents will also have access to amenities including a spa, a swimming pool, a private cinema, underground parking, 24-hour concierge and security and access to private residents’ gardens.
