MAGNIFICENT REFURBISHED KNIGHTSBRIDGE HOUSE
This Grade II listed house was built in the 1830's to a design by the renowned English architect George Basevi (1794-1845) who worked in the neoclassical style. Basevi was Surveyor to the Trustees of Henry Smith's Charity, who worked with the builder James Bonnin to develop Egerton Crescent, Pelham Crescent and Thurloe Square. Built of traditional brick construction behind a painted stucco fronted elevation, the house is arranged over basement, ground and 3 upper storeys. It has an Ionic pilastered doorway and an ornamental balcony at first floor level which enjoys magnificent views over the private gardens of Egerton Crescent to which this house has access.
The house has been completely refurbished and designed by the award winning British interior designer Katharine Pooley. It has a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room on the raised ground floor overlooking the rear terrace and garden, which opens onto an informal reception room at the front of the house. On the first floor, there is a magnificent drawing room which spans the full width of the house and overlooks the private gardens in the Crescent. The dining area is located on the first floor, behind which is an additional sitting area overlooking the rear garden. On the second floor, there is a study on the half landing, the master bedroom suite with en suite dressing room and lavishly appointed en suite bathroom. On the third (top) floor there are 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The basement floor provides a 4th bedroom suite with en suite shower room, utility room, cloakroom and a fantastic sitting/TV room which opens out onto the rear garden.
The charming and settled rear garden faces south east and has been impeccably landscaped with traditional Yorkstone paving stones, renowned for their hard wearing and durable qualities. There are a variety of mature trees, judiciously interspersed with herbaceous borders containing perennial flowering shrubs and plants.
