This exceptional property was painstakingly designed and rebuilt in its entirety (with the facade the only remaining original feature) by the current owner who took three and a half years to acquire the planning permission and undertake the works, including excavating the lower ground floor.
The property is divided across four floors, with 3 reception spaces, including a large reception/dining space on the ground floor, along with access to a heated garage. A passenger lift provides access to all four floors of the house with a custom built, mechanised roof opening giving access to the 620 sq ft roof terrace. A section of the ground floor has been removed to create a mezzanine, providing direct light into the kitchen below. This theme of providing direct light – whilst maintaining privacy – is a constant presence throughout the home. Such was the attention to detail, the owner spent six months acquiring permission for a single window at the rear of the property, looking back onto Eaton Square’s gardens.
The first floor reception space faces the quiet, cobbled streets of Eaton Mews South with an abundance of light entering the room through 3 sets of South-East facing French doors, each opening onto their own Juliet balcony. A home cinema with a 104” drop down screen, connected to Bowers and Wilkins speakers, allows the space to transform from a tranquil escape from city life, into a luxurious home cinema. A fireplace, cocktail bar and study area complete this versatile and charming room.
The master bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom with his and hers sinks, all finished in Calacatta Oro porcelain. This same finish is applied to the separate bathroom. The interior of the property was designed by Andrea Bizzaro whose focus means that each floor compliments the other seamlessly. At 2,334 sq ft (217 sq m), this thoughtfully deigned home presents the perfect opportunity for a family, pied a terre or London bolthole in one of the most eagerly sought out, super-prime locations in London.
