Description of Regent's Crescent
Regent's Crescent is a residential development in London W1.
The development comprises 76 new homes. 67 Grade I listed apartments and nine Garden Villas set behind an elegant façade in the eastern part of the crescent originally designed by John Nash in 1820, re-imagined by PDP.
Residents will be greeted by grand front doors featuring Regency-style fanlights, stone steps and traditional railings leading them into a double-height entrance lobby and onto an imperial staircase that sweeps down to the concierge desk and overlooks the private gardens. Other Regency-inspired features include the reintroduction of chimney stacks and the preservation of a celebrated 18th-century ice well discovered on site.
Its new incarnation will rectify wartime bomb damage to restore the truest version of Nash’s original vision alongside the exemplary modern design of the new high-specification residences and sophisticated communal areas. Regent’s Crescent also offers rare access to the 8 acres of exclusive private Park Crescent and Park Square resident’s gardens as well as one and a half acres of secluded private gardens to the rear of the property featuring lawns, mature trees and planted borders designed by landscape architects Bowles & Wyer.
Residents will have exclusive access to a range of high calibre amenities with a 9,000sqft basement including a spa, 20m swimming pool, spa-pool, sauna and steam room, private cinema, valet-operated underground parking, business centre and 24-hour concierge and security.
Access from Regent’s Park and Great Portland Street Underground stations are both within 3 minutes walk.
