British brands with cachet and state-ofthe-art leisure facilities await buyers at Lillie Square, the new homes transforming Earls Court
WITH luxury property, the quality of on- site leisure facilities has become almost as important as the specification of homes or their location.
At Lillie Square in Earls Court, the Residents’ Clubhouse covers an impressive 18,000sq ft over two floors. It provides sports and spa options, including a 20-metre swimming pool, a sauna and a steam room. There is also a fully equipped gym, with a separate studio space for an array of exercise classes.
Cult beauty brand ESPA will staff two therapy rooms offering a range of treatments and host workshops exploring cutting- edge beauty and wellbeing trends. But at Lillie Square, leisure is not solely about fitness and beauty.
ALL THE FAMILY’S HAPPY
A bright and cheerful children’s playroom is equipped with toys and games to keep the little ones occupied. And for the grown-ups there is a residents’ lounge with a bar, plus a separate dining room that can be hired for private parties. In the circular cinema room, you can take in a movie or catch a football match with friends.
But the unique selling point of Lillie Square is the way it has joined forces with some of London’s best-known brands.
The wine cellar, where residents can store their own wine collections, will also be stocked with a range from renowned wine merchant Berry Bros. & Rudd, which will run regular tutored tasting evenings. As part of Lillie Square’s exclusive lifestyle pass, if resi- dents would like to eat at home in Lillie Square, food can be delivered straight from Selfridges’ magnificent food hall, while celebrated florist Nikki Tibbles’ Wild at Heart will run exclusive flower arranging workshops.
A FIVE-STAR LIFESTYLE
Extending the five-star offering beyond Lillie Square, the lifestyle pass also incorporates last-minute lunch bookings at The Harwood Arms, London’s only Michelin-star pub, a short walk from the development.“The Lillie Square Clubhouse is inspired by the world’s finest five-star hotels,” explains Mike Hood, Group Development Director for the scheme’s joint developer, Capco, the company behind the acclaimed rejuvenation of Covent Garden.
“Health and wellbeing is an increasing priority among busy professionals, but our buyers’ time is limited,” adds Hood.“The Clubhouse has been created as an extension to each residents’ own home, designed to ensure they have everything they could want or need, on their doorstep.”
One of London’s largest new developments, Lillie Square is designed by architects Paul Davis+Partners and inspired in style and scale by classic mansion blocks. Eventually, more than 800 apartments and houses will fill the site, arranged around a garden square designed by award-winning landscape gardener Andy Sturgeon. All just a few minutes from West Brompton station and within an easy walk of the Tube at Earl’s Court.
THOUGH inspired by period architecture, the specification of Lillie Square’s homes is thoroughly 21st century. Bulthaup kitchens, underfloor heating and comfort cooling come as standard. The first residents moved in late last year and the first phase of homes is nearing completion. The second phase is due to complete in 2020, with prices starting from £775,000.
