Luxury rules

With 68 billionaires living in Britain, three times as many as in 2003, homes for the super-rich have become a much bigger niche market
pause
Knightsbridge is the most expensive place on the planet to buy a home - dearer than Manhattan or Monaco - and to ensure it stays on the rich list, there is a swanky new development called The Knightsbridge.

Opulence meets cool in an apartment designed by Nick and Christian Candy, thirtysomething brothers who are the talk of London’s property scene.

Unadulterated luxury combined with belt-and-braces security is their trademark. Described as "monochrome and masculine", this winning apartment comes with James Bond gadgetry as standard, black marble flooring, Macassar ebony wall-panels, an onyx and leather bar, handpainted silk wallpaper, mirrored ceiling, specially commissioned artwork and even a self-playing baby grand piano.

Like what you see? Chelsea Barracks and Middlesex Hospital are Candy &
Candy projects in the pipeline.
