If you’ve always wanted to add a little post-Betty Don Draper-style elegance to your life, here’s your chance.
For £8,450 per month, this three-bedroom “Hollywood-inspired” bachelor pad opposite Regent’s Park could be yours.
American films from the 1950s and 60s often feature the modern bachelor, a suave, carefree figure with a glamorous career and women falling at his feet. His elegant apartment, furnished in contemporary style, is a symbol of his success, style and sophistication.
The committed bachelor doesn’t like to be tied down, so the fact that this Regent’s Park pad is a rental property is ideal, leaving you ready to move on at a moment’s notice should a romantic entanglement get too tangled.
Nor does he want to be fettered by the need to wait in for deliveries so the building’s 24-hour porterage will be a boon. Whether or not the porter is on hand to participate in madcap escapades is not advertised, so viewing is advised.
The property is owned by a famous Indian restaurateur, whose restaurants are known for their themed interiors and the apartment follows suit. Each room has been given an individual design within the overarching monochrome and metallic mid-century scheme.
The hallmark of a true bachelor pad is the ability to set a seductive scene at the flick of a switch. Crystal mood lighting, flat screen TVs and iPads in each room will help create that romantic atmosphere in a flash.
The reception room features dark wood wall panelling and flooring with a contrasting white l-shaped sofa and white marble coffee table. The connected open plan dining room seats up to eight and leads onto a balcony, while a sculptural hanging lamp and floor-to-ceiling mirror provide drama.
A sleek, minimal kitchen features Miele appliances – perhaps one of your many dates would like to cook you dinner here. Should things progress to the bedroom there are three to choose from, but you’ll probably plump for the master suite, designed in regal purple and gold.
The polished marble master bathroom, featuring an illuminated onyx sink and oversized gold mirror, is the perfect location for the fantasy bachelor to hone his sharp, chiselled look to perfection – no beards in this bathroom.
Vic Chhabria, Director of Rescorp Residential commented: “This stunning apartment has been finished to the highest standards and enjoys a privileged location overlooking the Regent’s Park. With its Hollywood-inspired designer interiors, modern appliances and bespoke features, this beautiful home represents the pinnacle of luxurious contemporary living.”
Crown Court is available for rent at £1,950 per week through Rescorp Residential rescorp.co.uk
