This historic London mansion has been transformed into a boutique apartment building.
After an extensive five-year makeover, a London mansion that’s been home to a veritable who’s who of London’s well-to-do has been transformed into a boutique apartment building with prices starting at £1.25 million (US$1.74 million).
Formerly home to the likes of Lord Arthur Hobhouse, a High Court judge; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s solicitor; and Oswald Vaughan Lloyd-Davies, a surgeon whose clients included members of the royal family, the Marylebone property’s six apartments hit the market Tuesday with listing agencies Aston Chase and Beauchamp Estates.
The units comprise a four-bedroom duplex designed around a central courtyard garden; an “ultimate bachelor pad,” with high ceilings, a balcony and a terrace; a pair of two-bedroom apartments; a three-bedroom spread; and a one bedroom home, according to a news release from the London-based brokerages.
At £7.25 million, the four-bedroom duplex is the building’s priciest offering.
The lengthy renovation—led by developer DAO Estate and architectural practice MWAI—involved the preservation of the building’s period details and the addition of contemporary features, the release said.
It “strikes a perfect balance between sophisticated contemporary living and the retention of the distinctive and beautiful character of this historically significant Georgian building,” Alessia Mosci, director at MWAI, said in the release.
All homes are fitted with bespoke kitchens with granite or quartz stone countertops, bespoke flooring, bathrooms with underfloor heating, state-of-the-art home entertainment, and restored or reinstated Georgian moldings, cornices and neoclassical fireplaces.
The development “represents a great opportunity for discerning purchasers seeking high quality accommodation in Marylebone,” Mark Pollack, co-founder and director of Aston Chase, said in the release.
As well as being available as separate units, the development is also available in its entirety, for a guide price of £20 million, for a buyer looking for sizable central London home, rental income, or a combination of the two.
