There’s no denying that London is one of the most attractive cities in the world. What’s not to like? An abundance of luxury designer shops, Michelin star restaurants and bars, outstanding public and private schools, fantastic transport links for local and worldwide travel as well as a thriving diverse culture. Given that London dates back to the Romans, it’s also steeped in history and there’s no shortage of historic buildings, monuments and museums. Home to the Royal family and the UK Government, it’s no wonder that the rich and famous want to make London where they reside too.
Whether it’s an apartment, a townhouse or a mansion, the cost will reflect its location just by having a London postcode. Prices of high end properties will be eye-wateringly steep, located in prestigious neighbourhoods with good local amenities. It’s not just celebrities, city bankers or the aristocracy with their ‘old-money’ who seek luxury homes, it’s international clientele who are helping to drive the market not just for a home but as an investment opportunity and status symbol.
The high end, ultra-modern, multi-million pound, luxury home is most sought after to match their jet-set way of life. The wish list includes penthouses that have glorious views of the capital, or vast, first‑floor apartments with high ceilings and several bedrooms. High tech gadgetry, concierge service, security, safe parking, gym facilities and plush décor are also high on their agenda.
Numerous luxury apartment blocks are being built in the city. Once reserved for residential districts such as Mayfair, Kensington or Chelsea, luxury apartments are now being sought in other areas such as Canary Wharf and Shoreditch, where opportunities to live, work and play are all within one exciting location.
Whether is a new build or an older property, wealthy property buyers will expect only the best when it comes to interior design. Dyfed Richards has been privileged to supply and fit high end specialist wood flooring to some very prestigious residencies in London.

In Kensington, Dyfed Richards supplied and fitted a 100mm x 10mm fumed Oak with an Oil finish. A stunning floor, its fabulous colour was accentuated by the use of white paint on the walls, and contemporary furniture.
