Sale of the century
Think shopping, think Oxford Street. That’s what London does, lured by the flagship stores, the famous brands and the freedom to browse long into the evening. But beyond the hustle and bustle lies a home of priceless peace and quiet. North Audley Street II is a tucked-away treasure, where the swoosh of shopping bags gives way to a happy sigh of satisfaction. Light and bright, cool and comforting, here you’ll find home in the heart of the city. Selfridges could hardly be closer, while the mild airs of Hyde Park are, of course, always on offer.
Born in Trinidad, your host is an entrepreneur with interests in everything from beauty salons to events venues. In his spare time, you’ll find him firing down aces on a tennis court.

With the US embassy one way and Selfridges the other, this is London’s fast-beating heart. But step inside and you might forget. All is calm and collected, starting in the graceful sitting room. Formally furnished, the ceilings are high and the plasterwork sophisticated. Subside into the deep sofa or period armchair with a glass of something cool, or glide over to the window and soak up the busy scene below. The kitchen is shiny in the deepest mahogany, and you’ve a trim table for four.
Elegance enfolds the master bedroom, from the white walls to the tufted headboard and the impressively stylish twin lamps. But before you embrace the crisp linen, indulge yourself in the ensuite. With a shower, roll-top bath and oodles of our White Company toiletries, you’ll want to take your time…
It’s fair to say you won’t be short on things to do, or buy, around here. The boutiques, the restaurants and the cafes start as soon as you get downstairs, while Oxford Street is simply a shopper’s paradise. Dine in Soho, see a show in theatreland or get away from the fray with a picnic in Hyde Park. All are within the shortest of strolls from your front door.
