Providing the latest of an exciting new generation of new-build luxury homes in London’s St John’s Wood, leading developer Almax Group have launched 1A St John’s Wood Park, a boutique apartment building designed by Richard Lavington of award-winning architectural practice Maccreanor Lavington providing nine apartments including six laterals, two duplex penthouses and a grand garden duplex residence: for sale via sales agents Aston Chase and Savills.
St John’s Wood is renowned for its wide leafy roads, proximity to Regent’s Park and its highly sought after Regency white-stucco villas and red-brick Victorian and Edwardian mansion buildings. Using local architecture for inspiration Maccreanor Lavington designed 1A St John’s Wood Park as a contemporary reinterpretation of an Edwardian mansion block, resulting in the first new apartment development to be built on the east side of St John’s Wood since Rosetti House on Ordnance Hill was constructed some thirty years ago.
With quality and attention to detail rarely found in a new-build development, the elegant, modern apartment building is now finished and ready for immediate occupation. Features include a striking glass and brick façade with stone detailing, deep bay windows with full height glazing, apartments benefitting from light filled open plan interiors and contemporary specification accessed by a striking entrance foyer with concierge, the foyer design inspired by a boutique hotel.
1A St John’s Wood Park provides six two and three bedroom lateral apartments, ranging from 772.8 sq.ft. (71.8 sq.m.) up to 1,121.6 sq.ft.

(174.8 sq.m.), and finally a grand four bedroom garden duplex residence which is 2,185 sq.ft. (203 sq.m.) in size with private front and rear gardens and a lower ground floor courtyard. Selected apartments have been dressed and interior designed, providing buyers with a turn-key home for moving into immediately.

These outstanding homes provide both a home and excellent long-term investment.”
Zach Madison, Director at Savills (St John’s Wood) says: “The apartments at 1A St Johns Wood Park provide quality alongside value-for-money, and are a good long-term investment since new-homes values and demand in St Johns Wood is anticipated to rise over the next few years as pipeline projects come to fruition on Hamilton Terrace, Avenue Road and St John’s Wood Barracks. Historically the local marketplace has been dominated by period properties with many buyers having to refurbish in order to create a modern home, this is why the new-homes market is always highly anticipated when new launches like this take place.”
1A St Johns Wood Park has a passenger lift and staircase to all levels and is complete with bicycle storage for residents and off-street parking. The lateral apartments are priced from £1,650,000, the penthouses are priced from £3,690,000 and the grand garden duplex residence is priced at £4,495,000.
