Imagine emerging from the garage of your new London townhouse in your new Porsche and giving a cheery wave to your new neighbours.
That is the tantalising prospect facing the purchaser of one of the most exciting properties we have brought to the market in recent years. Connaught Square, just a short walk from Marble Arch, has long been one of the most exclusive addresses in London, which is what drew the likes of Claudia Winkleman and the Blairs to buy properties here. But the luxury Georgian townhouse which we are offering for sale for £10.25 million, is special even by Connaught Square standards.
“It is rare for a house to come on the market in Connaught Square with the mews house incorporated into the property,” says Martin Bikhit, MD of Kay & Co. “The property has not just been sympathetically restored, but also boasts a lift.”
The Grade II-Listed property dates back to circa 1827 and has just received a multi-million pound renovation overseen by a leading building consultant holding the Royal Warrant. Specialist restoration works in the property have been carried out by A&M Restoration and Conservation, another Royal Warrant-holder, which has supervised works in Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and other Royal properties.
For connoisseurs of decorative arts, it is the attention to detail in the property that really catches the eye. From the Murano chandeliers by renowned lighting specialists Bella Figura to the bespoke silk wallpapers, done to designs from the V&A, every room oozes class and sophistication.
Other stand-out features of the five-bedroom property, located on the most desirable side of the square, include a magnificent first-floor drawing-room, underfloor heating, an integrated garage and a swimming-pool. The new owners will also enjoy access to the square’s beautifully kept residents’ garden.
As for that Porsche in which the new owners of the house can imagine themselves driving around the West End, it is thrown in with property. A 2016 Porsche Cayenne S E-hybrid, the car was purchased fifteen months ago by the present owners of the property, who have also installed a charging pedestal for electric cars.
The Porsche makes the perfect complement to a truly 21st-century property and, your new neighbours might even gasp in admiration as you sweep past.
