Record sale at One Hyde Park, Knightbridge

Property portal PrimeResi is reporting that one of the units at One Hyde Park recently changed hands for a record-breaking £160m. This transaction would have attracted around £24m in stamp duty alone.

Completed in 2010, the 86-unit project replaced a 1950s office block called Bowater House, and took four years to build.

The Mandarin Oriental provides the residences with five-star hotel services, including gourmet 24-hour room service, while amenities range from a private cinema, business suite and wine cellars, to a 21m ozone swimming pool, squash court, golf stimulator, and virtual games room.
