The principal rooms of the former Central London County Court are now a £6.75 million luxury home


Ultra-prime residential developer Amazon Property have transformed the Central London County Court at 14 The Park Crescent into The Turner and have unveiled a brand new 2,186 sq.ft (203.1 sq.m) three bedroom residence with 12.5 ft (3.83m) high ceilings to principal rooms and a private 219 sq.ft south facing garden terrace.

The new garden floor apartment at The Turner benefits from access to eight acres of private gardens with tennis courts and other amenities and use of the exclusive state-of-the-art Park Crescent Club leisure facility located beneath the Grade I inspired listed Nash crescent. The beautiful and elegant interiors have been dressed by Amazon Property’s own design team and the apartment is ready for immediate occupation, providing a perfect luxury residence for either owner occupation or premium rental investment asset.

Chris Lanitis, Director at Amazon Property says: “This interior designed and dressed garden apartment at The Turner is available for immediate occupation and is part of the only new build development in Regents Park to be awarded Grade I listed status. The apartment is newly built behind the retained Nash façade and benefits from a 24 hour concierge and has access to The Park Crescent Club leisure facility beneath the development. The club will include a state-of-the-art “one of a kind” cinema room, lounge/dining facilities, bar, gym, treatment rooms and a magnificent spa.”

Moreas Madani, Partner – Prime Central London Development, at Knight Frank says: “This magnificent garden apartment represents the very last opportunity for a purchaser to acquire a residence at The Turner at The Park Crescent since all the other apartments have sold off market prior to the launch of the show apartment. The Turner is extremely unique – being at once a boutique development with history, heritage and beauty, and a new build scheme that benefits from embassy-grade security, an exceptional amenity offering and one of the highest specifications currently available in London. The 3.83 metre ceiling heights and access to eight acres of private gardens are other distinguishing factors that offer that unique point of difference.”

The Park Crescent is London’s only Royal Crescent, designed by John Nash and built between 1812-1820 as palatial residences for family and friends of HRH Prince George, the Prince Regent and Acting Head of State.

In 1965 No.14 Park Crescent was converted into the Central London County Court with the grand rooms dealing with personal injury, landlord-tenant disputes and defamation cases, the latter including the famous Baron Aldington vs Count Nikolai Tolstoy (1989), McDonalds vs Greenpeace (1990), David Irving vs Penguin Books (1996) – the courtroom events dramatised in Denial, a 2016 Hollywood movie starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson – and the Lance Armstrong vs Sunday Times (2004) cases.

The County Court relocated to the Thomas More Building on the Strand and the vacant Regent’s Park chambers at No.14 Park Crescent were sold to Amazon Property who began the process of applying for planning consent to restore and return the Regency building back to its residential origins. The result is The Turner, a collection of newly built apartments created behind the retained Nash façade of The Park Crescent.

With its brand new 2020 specification The Turner is widely recognised as the finest newly built apartments in the Regent’s Park and Marylebone area and as a result all the other principal apartments in the building have sold early off market and at full asking prices. Amazon Property deliberately held back the ground floor show apartment until it was dressed and completed and it is now being launched to the market for sale, the only remaining opportunity to purchase a residence in the new development.

The newly launched apartment has a magnificent double volume main reception room with a 12.5 ft (3.83m) high coffered ceiling with concealed feature lighting, bespoke design statement parquet flooring, and three full height sash windows looking onto the Park Crescent Gardens.

With a cool and refined look inspired by Ralph Lauren’s Black Palms Collection, the spacious reception room has been arranged to provide a large living area with three sets of white-cream sofas and matching ottoman arranged around a central coffee table and bespoke cabinetry with recessed television/home cinema screen and shelving for object d art and accessories. There is also a 6-8 seat dining area with Ralph Lauren Suburban Safari style dining table, dining chairs and side console.

Benefitting from an adjoining six seater breakfast/informal dining area, the individually designed handmade kitchen with central island and custom designed Oak soft close cupboards and drawers with white-cream stone worktops and a full range of integrated Miele appliances and light Oak herringbone parquet flooring.

The breakfast and informal dining area opens onto the private south facing garden terrace which is arranged to provide an outside living and entertaining area with garden sofas and coffee table, the terrace is bordered by high ‘living green walls’ providing privacy and shielding against any breeze.

The principal bedroom suite spans the entire depth of the apartment and has a main bedroom, walk-in dressing area lined with built-in wardrobes and a bathroom with a sculptural freestanding bathtub and a walk-in shower with rainforest and steam shower facility. There are two further bedroom suites, each with luxurious ensuite facilities.

The apartment is complete with underfloor heating throughout, comfort cooling to the main reception and bedrooms and state-of-the-art security and Lutron/Crestron home entertainment systems.

The Park Crescent Club is a 2,300 sqft 24-hour owners-only complex offering a wide range of relaxation and leisure facilities. With a ceiling height of over 9.8 ft (3 m) the club will feature the latest leisure technology including a private cinema, gymnasium, boxing facility, yoga/pilates, beauty/treatment room, cocktail bar, dining facilities and games area, together with a steam room and sauna.

The Turner residents also benefit from a 24 hour concierge service and direct views onto and access to their own eight acres of magnificent private resident’s only gardens, known as the Park Square and Park Crescent Gardens.
