Luxury residences fit for royals at The Park Crescent in London – in pictures
Amazon Property next month will launch The Park Crescent development, London’s only royal crescent that was transformed provide 20 two- to four-bedroom ultra prime residences with five-star hotel style concierge.
Six of the residences are being transformed into an arts exhibition, with works from renowned artists including Marc Chagall, Joan Miro, Savador Dali, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Damien Hurst on display during the launch event on October 6. The art exhibition is timed in conjunction with the Frieze London Art Exhibition, which runs for a week starting October 3.
The crescent traces its origins back to 1811 when Prince George, then Prince Regent, commissioned John Nash to create a master plan for a royal residence located on the crown estate lands of Regent’s Park.
The completed royal crescent eventually became London’s most sought after address to exiled royals, aristocrats, business tycoons and high society.
The crescent was damaged during the Second World War, but was restored and rebuilt during the 1960s to mirror the original Nash design.
Many properties eventually became office premises until 2013, when Amazon Property purchased The Park Crescent and decided to convert the royal crescent as one of London’s most prestigious residential addresses.
The residences range from 1,429 square feet up to 4,127 sq ft in size with ceilings up to 3.8 metres high. Each has a spacious double or triple volume reception room overlooking the private gardens and Regent’s Park.

Other facilities include access to a fleet of professional domestic staff providing services such as housekeeping, butler service, chauffeur and maintenance staff on hand 24/7.
