The most expensive property in London has gone up for sale at a meagre £54.5 million.
This price is almost 32 times more than it sold for in 2008, a much more affordable £1.7 million. The 12 bedroom Mayfair town house, which is Grade II Listed, was constructed in 1732 and underwent an extensive refurbishment in 1908 under the management of famous architect Ralph Knott.
He was world famous for his “Edwardian Baroque” style of architecture, as is evident in his County Hall in London.
He used Portland stone to re-front the building which was hailed as “extremely inventive” at the time. Since his refurbishment in 1908 it has been remodelled by The Kalyvides Partnership, a group of architects from Camden.
The stunning residence is 14,500 square foot in size and is connected to a mews house next door via it’s extensive cellars and ground floor. As it sits today the house has been restored to it’s former glory. This includes a large L shaped living area and a dining room that is capable of seating 20 people.
On the second floor are 5 bedrooms, including a master suite which has it’s own roof terrace, with further bedrooms to be found in the Mews house to the rear of the property which boasts a kitchen/drawing room along with a gym and garage for 2 cars. The main house also contains Mayfair’s largest private swimming pool with separate spa pool and sauna. All this could be yours if you have a spare £54.5 million hanging around !!
