Aston Chase has let a 14,530 sq.ft. seven-bedroom mansion on The Bishop’s Avenue in London’s Hampstead Garden Suburb for £20,000 per week to a family relocating from Kensington, the luxurious residence located in an exclusive scheme of houses and apartments where BBC1 TV’s famous ‘The Apprentice’ series starring Lord Alan Sugar has been filmed in both 2023 and 2022.

The landmark rental agreement was awarded Let of the Year (North London) by the esteemed annual LonRes Awards 2023, which recognises the best sales and lettings deals undertaken across London.

Designed in the style of a grand Georgian residence, the recently built mansion is located within secure gated grounds, set back off The Bishop’s Avenue, and is set in landscaped gardens, designed by award winning landscape architects Bowles & Wyer and include beautiful Oak, Hazel, and Willow trees.

Leading ultra-prime London estate agent Aston Chase highlight that the spectacular mansion was built as part of an ultra-exclusive scheme of super-prime houses and apartments with 24-hour concierge by a developer who historically specialised in luxury hotel schemes.

As a result, the property provides all the amenities of a luxury resort including a spa and fitness facility including a glass mosaic lined swimming pool, a separate spa pool, a marble-clad ice chute, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and treatment room, home cinema, a clubroom with its marble-clad bar and adjoining external courtyard as well as a passenger lift serving all floors.

Aston Chase say that the tenants were formally based in Kensington and had originally looked with Aston Chase at homes in Kensington and Chelsea but were unable to find a low-built property with the security, gardens and amenities they required.

Aston Chase suggested the mansion on The Bishop’s Avenue and the family decided to relocate to North London as the property provided them with the security, privacy and hotel-style leisure facilities that they wanted from their London home. The tenants initially undertook a 12 month rental agreement via Aston Chase, which has now been extended for another year as they are so pleased with life in Hampstead Garden Suburb.

The exclusive scheme of houses and apartments on The Bishop’s Avenue has been used as the base for the apprentices in both the 2022 and 2023 series of BBC1 TV’s ‘The Apprentice’, starring Lord Alan Sugar and a host of aspiring candidates and the address has also been featured in ‘Britain’s Most Expensive Houses’ on Channel 4 TV.

Mark Pollack, Co-Founding Director of Aston Chase says: “This significant lettings deal is one of the most substantial rents ever achieved on The Bishop’s Avenue and underlines both the desirability of The Bishop’s Avenue as an internationally recognised address and the quality of the residence itself. The property provides many of the amenities ordinarily found within a luxury hotel which, along with the 24/7 security is what tempted the tenants to relocate from Kensington to Kenwood. Aston Chase is proud to have facilitated this important transaction recognised by LonRes which reflects the success of our prime lettings activity which has experienced exponential growth over the last 24 months.”

Arron Bart, Lettings Director at Aston Chase says: “This recently built mansion offers the grandeur of The Bishop’s Avenue with the amenities of a hotel, including a swimming pool, gym, sauna, massage room and cinema. The combination of luxurious, high quality interiors and leisure facilities attracted the tenants to the property. The concierge at the scheme is a fountain of knowledge and woe betide anyone trying to get past his eagle eye. The house is set within a luxury gated development which offers the ultimate in security allowing our tenants to maintain a discrete, low profile.”
