The fascinating residential complex at 107 Queen’s Gate in London, totally renovated by the Eav’s Group, is just waiting to be inhabited. For its first residential project, the young real estate development firm offers refined luxury properties and personalized services for the most demanding citizens of the world. This objective is achieved by means of apartments with an exceptional level of quality, in the heart of South Kensington, not far from the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal Albert Hall. The advantages also include a prepaid membership at Equinox, one of the area’s most luxurious fitness clubs, and a full year of concierge services, ranging from organization and reservation of travel to logistics and personal shopping.
As Jonathan Eav, founder and executive director of the firm, explains: “This property is both a magnificent home ready for the entry of a demanding client, and a good investment for those who want to add something exclusive to their own portfolio.” Inside a Victorian building dating back to 1874 constructed by Sir Charles James Freake, part of the city’s cultural heritage, the flat of about 185 sqm has been conservatively renovated to provide the highest standards of contemporary living.
Air conditioning, floor-based heating and technological bathrooms are combined with a timeless, elegant and unique style driven by contrasting colors, materials and motifs. Everything has been custom designed for spaces of extraordinary volume – the ceilings are nearly four meters high – flooded by abundant natural light.
Floors in marble mosaic and wood form a setting for finely crafted furnishings mixed with more modern pieces. As in the living area, placed in front of a bow window, containing an evocative full-height bookcase in matte gold-color brass, modern sofas with an organic form, wall paneling and a splendid marble fireplace.
Entering every room, one has a vivid sense of ample space, even in the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The latter have a well-designed layout that makes them airy yet intimate, outfitted with double washstands made to measure, bath fixtures by TOTO and Villeroy & Boch, invisible television screens hidden behind the mirrors, and floors made with marble tiles.
The design is also outstanding in the kitchen, featuring appliances by Gaggenau, a Liebherr wine storage unit and kitchenware from the Gifu collection of Sebastian Conran.
For the artworks that enhance the spaces, Eav’s Group has decided to support rising talents, commissioning the pieces to measure. They include a work by the British artist Jo Charlton: a stylized depiction of trees, with characteristic gold leaf to add warmth and luminosity.
