Do first impressions count? It might look drab outside, but this London block has a one-bed flat for sale for £2M

They say first impressions count and if you drove up to this block housing a one-bedroom first-floor flat for sale, you may well question the apartment’s £2million price tag.

But step inside and you’ll find a modern designer home with state-of-the-art technology that includes a ‘floating’ bed, an integrated sound system and electric blinds.

And it’s the location of this luxury apartment that really explains the hefty asking price. It is in the heart of London’s fashionable Belgravia, with Harrods just a stone’s throw away.

Thorburn House is a purpose-built building, which is described by Foxtons – the estate agent handling the sale – as ‘prestigious’, boasting both a lift and a porter.

The flat has a large open plan living area that includes a kitchen breakfast bar and separate dining area.

The property was originally a three-bedroom apartment covering 1,145 sq ft, but has since been converted into a very spacious one-bedroom one, with an ensuite bathroom and a large dressing room.

The state-of-the-art technology controls the air conditioning, heating, music blinds and lighting at the touch of a button.

The flat is in Kinnerton Street, which is close to the green spaces of Hyde Park and Belgravia Square.

It is for sale for £1,950,000, but it has so far failed to sell, having been on the market for more than a year.

And it has had a big price drop of 17 per cent in that time. It was first listed in January last year for £2,350,000, according to the property website Zoopla.

The current price remains above the £1,790,000 value of a typical property in the area, which has risen almost £60,000 during the past year.
