WhatHouse? Awards 2015 winners – Oakmayne Bespoke, Best Apartment Scheme
Posted 27 November 2015 by Keith Osborne
Luxury development 10 Soho Square is this year’s winner of Silver for the Best Apartment Scheme category and it comprises just five apartments set behind a Grade II listed façade.
This boutique project by Oakmayne Bespoke echoes the combination of address and specification of its previous Prime Central London developments, Cornwall Terrace and Verge Mayfair. At a starting price of £4.25m for a two-bedroom property, the new apartments at 10 Soho Square have been spared no expense or attention to detail. The final penthouse is now for sale at £4.95m.
David Walliams presented the WhatHouse? Award to the Oakmayne team at the Gala Luncheon at the Grosvenor House Hotel last Friday (20 November).
Martin Lent, CEO of SCM, the development manager for Oakmayne Bespoke, says: “We are proud and delighted that 10 Soho Square has been awarded Silver at the WhatHouse? Awards 2015. This is the third development by Oakmayne Bespoke to win one of these prestigious awards in recent years; setting them amongst some of the finest properties in the UK.
“We are hoping that our newly launched scheme, The Fitzbourne, will have the same success at the 2016 WhatHouse? Awards.”
The WhatHouse? Awards judges said of the company’s achievement:
“[We applaud] the grand, long, lateral living spaces, with plenty of room to seat eight at a dining table as well as accommodate a good-sized, German-engineered kitchen and a pleasing and comfy zone for relaxation.
“Also worth noting are pocket sliding doors to divide the kitchen from the rest of the living area, remote controlled blinds and heating system, an en suite bathroom with each bedroom, waterfall showers, underfloor heating and terrific operations via Creston, Sky and iPads.
“Added soupçons are wardrobes that instantly light up and where every inch of space is used; tiles running all the way up walls and classic brown marble in bathrooms; televisions in every room; and witty and effective interior design by Lambert and Browne, evident not only inside the apartments but on staircases and in all the communal parts of the building.
“Overall, the contemporary finishes blend artfully with the older skeleton of the edifice, providing cheeky but classic apartments that come with a year’s membership to private concierge club Quintessentially to cater to a purchaser’s every need.”
