    About this property

    • Situated directly opposite Buckingham Palace and comprising c.14,407 square feet, the townhouse is arranged over seven floors (with lift), offering five reception rooms, six principal bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as a spa and staff accommodation.

      Key features/rooms:

      Spa: The entire basement floor is dedicated to a sleek and superbly appointed spa, with a strong contemporary look and facilities superior to those found in most private clubs or hotels. The carefully designed configuration of amenities includes a swimming pool of almost 35 foot (10 metre), sauna, treatment room, gym, bar and his and her changing rooms.

      The entrance hallway is one of extraordinary drama and beauty, with soaring ceilings and a grand, cantilevered Portland stone staircase that graciously sweeps through the core of the building.

      Drawing Room: Two singularly dramatic, interconnecting formal spaces, complete with soaring ceiling heights in excess of 14' (4.3 m), comprise a truly impressive drawing room that is perfectly suited to large-scale, formal entertaining.

      Kitchen: The most contemporary space in the house is the state-of-the art kitchen and atrium, which occupies a substantial part of the lower ground floor. The kitchen opens directly into the atrium with access to the media room, making this an ideal family space. The extensively appointed Boffi kitchen is designed with the highest specification of Kohler, Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, combined with beautifully crafted Italian cabinetry.

      Library: Grandiose double floor-to-ceiling doors sit between the library and the dining room. Doors can be opened up to create a vast, open space that incorporates the balcony and spans almost 60' (18m) of the raised ground floor.

      Principal bedroom: The second floor is entirely devoted to the principal bedroom suite, comprising approximately 2,000 square feet (185 square metres) of private space that incorporates separate his and her bathrooms and dressing rooms.

      Bathrooms: Each of the six bathrooms has been crafted using the very highest quality marbles - Arabascato, Statuario and Calacatta. Separate his and her bathrooms are incorporated into the principal bedroom suite and seamlessly combine the grand proportions of a 19th- century design with early 20th-century glamour and state-of-the-art 21st-century technology.

      Media room: Situated just off the kitchen and adjoining glass atrium, the intimate media room is designed with family in mind. The vast 75" HD plasma screen can be enjoyed from a luxurious oversized L-shaped sofa, upholstered in Veere Grenney bespoke Veranda linen in Berber Brown. Surround sound and an electronic black-out blind complete the cinematic experience.

      Staff accommodation: Staff accommodation comprising two double bedrooms, kitchen and shower room is situated on the lower-ground floor of the house, with an additional separate entrance off Buckingham Gate. There is also a large utility room with extensive laundry facilities and ample storage.
