The new number ten

The best advice to give to any London tourist is to look up, lest they miss out on our outstanding architecture. Not just eye candy for out-of-towners, it’s worth remembering the Capital’s spectacular skyline and iconic buildings belong to us, too. But, have you ever wandered around say, Trafalgar Square, fantasising about what it’d be like to actually live in one of these grand, historical structures? We know we have.

For some lucky buyers, that fantasy will soon become a reality when Ten Trinity Square – one of London’s most cherished landmarks – will transform into the finest residential address in town, featuring 41 fully-serviced apartments, a distinguished private members’ club and (OK, one for the visitors) the home of London’s Four Seasons Hotel. The Grade II-listed Beaux-Arts building – in case you have had your head down while passing – is the handiwork of Edwardian architect Sir Edwin Cooper, and boasts soaring Corinthian columns and grand porticos. We think you’ll agree, not your usual bullet points in a sales spec. It also happens to be located Thames-side, next door to the Tower of London, in fact, giving a whole new meaning to the term noisy neighbours – those ravens don’t half squawk. But still, talk about a location to die for!

If, like us, you love a home steeped in history, you’ll be able to fill your Napoleonic boots with No. Ten’s fascinating past. Promising to deliver contemporary luxury while paying homage to the building’s rich history, we think we may have just found the summit of London living.
