These beautiful homes have recently been carved out of one of London's most iconic buildings—Ten Trinity Square.
The magnificent London landmark that is Ten Trinity Square—long standing proud in Tower Hill in the heart of the City of London—has recently been redevoloped by the Reignwood group into a luxury hotel and 41 of the most exclusive private residences. The iconic building, which overlooks the river features homes ranging between one and five bedrooms with sumptuous living areas, accessed by a marble-clad lobby and private elevator entrance.
The illustrious Grade II listed building has a rich and fascinating history being constructed nearly a century ago for the whopping price tag of a million pounds—which in those days represented a mind-boggling amount of money—for the Port of London Authority. Designed by Sir Edwin Cooper, and opened by the then Prime Minister David Lloyd George, the grandiose building also hosted the inaugural meeting of the 1946 General Assembly of the United Nations, an event from which certain relics have been discovered during the recent renovations. Unfortunately the beloved property was badly damaged during the blitz in World War II however is now meticulously restored to its former glory after a stint being occupied by Willis Faber ltd.
The celebrated heritage of this grand building will live on in the lavish interiors which have been inspired by the extraordinary neo-classical exterior architecture of the building. Offering phenomenal views of the Thames, Tower of London and Tower Bridge, the residences will be fully-serviced and cared for by Four Seasons. A company renowned for its exceedingly high standards in the luxury service sector. Residents will also benefit from complete access to the elite and exclusive facilities and amenities of the world-class hotel.
The four-year long renovation of the building has beautifully preserved many of the quintessential and recognisable internal features of the original design with an impressive attention to detail in maintaining the integrity of the landmark. The properties feature carved walnut panelling, high ceilings and ornate cornicing throughout which is set to cement Ten Trinity Square as one of the most coveted addresses in the capital.
This rare opportunity to purchase elegant and spacious homes within such a revered London landmark truly does seldom occur and offers opulent city living and superlative luxury at close quarters with arguably the most important financial district in the world.
The state-of-the-art properties exquisitely intertwine contemporary and traditional features ‘in a vision that links, explores and expresses the cultures and achievements of peoples all around the world’. Although this may depart slightly from the typical country homes we often feature here at Country Life this imposing structure with its great tower and grand Portland stone rotunda is just too historically important to ignore and embodies the spirit of an area that is becoming increasingly embraced as a vibrant, sophisticated place to live.
