This spacious penthouse apartment sits atop Hampshire House, a striking sandstone building right beside London’s Hyde Park, on Hyde Park Place. The newly refurbished building dates from the early 20th century, according to the home’s agent, Joe Le Beau, so that the benefits of a brand new home can be enjoyed within a charming period building.
Hyde Park Place is rich in historical significance, with Charles Dickens having lived a few doors down on the same street at No. 5 Hyde Park Place in early 1870, according to Mr. Le Beau, so that his daughter Mary could be in town for the “London Season.” This apartment, located at No. 12 Hyde Park Place, still shares the exact same view over Hyde Park that Charles Dickens would have enjoyed while writing “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,”: his final novel before passing away a few months after its publication.
