One of the latest properties to hit London's rental market for the ultra-rich is a four-bedroom apartment at One Hyde Park, opposite the park of the same name, which costs an incredible £1.17 million to rent a year.
It's also available on a short-term basis for £22,500 per week or £90,000 per month. One Hyde Park is famous for being the London home of the prime minister of Pakistan and the president of Kazakhstan, among other oligarchs. They live there for the security and isolation it provides from London's teeming streets.
But despite having some insanely luxurious amenities — such as a private cinema, pool, spa, and golfing area — it's not the most expensive flat at One Hyde Park. Last year, the letting agent Tunstall Property managed to rent another for £45,000 per week.
Residents at One Hyde Park have the luxury of a on-site concierge, housekeeping, and valet services, 24 hours a day. The round the clock service comes at the provision of the neighbouring Mandarin Oriental Hotel, which is connected to the development by tunnel.
The third-floor flat has 4,000 square foot of living space and has four equal-sized en-suite bedrooms, one of which has been converted into a "media room."
The luxury apartment, which is let fully furnished, was developed by Candy & Candy, One Hyde Park and was designed throughout by Katherine Pooley Design.
The flat has a large Bulthaup kitchen, with natural marble floor, marble breakfast bar and built-in Gaggenau appliances. Opposite is the private dining room which is large enough to seat eight or more people.
The bathrooms are all fitted with rich cream marble, "his and hers" vanity units, bathtubs, and shower rooms.
One of the key features is the views of Hyde Park. The large living area features floor-to-ceiling sliding windows that open to a balcony.
But this 21-metre "ozone" swimming pool, is why London's wealthiest would fork out over £1 million to rent this place.
It also has spa and health facilities available for residents ...
... including a massive private gym.
There is even a squash court with a spectator seating area ...
... and a golfing simulator at your disposal, if you don't fancy leaving the apartment block.
And of course, there is a private cinema for when you want to relax.
