Luxury in Knightsbridge


If you thought that being able to find a luxury penthouse in Knightsbridge was a thing of the past, you may be pleased to know that you can reconsider.

The property

Sherwoods have recently announced the availability of a superbly equipped and high-quality penthouse in Basil Street, Knightsbridge, London SW3.

Built above a portered mansion block, the penthouse was constructed in the early 21st century and as a result, benefits from all modern construction and insulation techniques.   That includes under-floor heating and comfort cooling.

The penthouse has three bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a roof terrace providing spectacular views over the rooftops of London.  The principal suite bedroom also has an integral dressing room.

Entry to the property is via a secure and dedicated lift directly to the penthouse suite with an added bonus being the designated underground parking nearby.

The large and spacious reception room and fully-equipped ultra-modern kitchen are both extremely well lit by natural light and also have sweeping views.

Being just a stone’s throw from Harrods and close to all the other legendary attractions of London’s West End, this property stands out prominently as being a very rare opportunity.


Long known as being one of London’s most desirable residential areas, Knightsbridge offers a number of immediate attractions:

  • it’s close proximity to the bubbling commercial life of the West End;
  • easy and fast commuting into the adjacent City of London with its tourist and major financial centre commercial attractions;
  • close-by access to the road and rail network for leaving town and gaining rapid access to the countryside to the South, North and West of London;
  • ease of access to Heathrow through the west London road and rail networks;
  • superbly located for areas such as Theatreland and the other West End recreational areas including shopping;
  • a cosmopolitan and sophisticated culture.

Properties of this calibre in this area are typically highly sought-after.

The quality of this property and its unique location make it ideal both for high net-worth residential purchasers and as a potential commercial investment opportunity.

Annual financials
