A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire the freehold of one of the last grand residences to be built on this scale in Central London.

http://search.knightfrank.co.uk/ken100161

Located between Kensington Palace and Holland Park, this wonderful mansion enjoys a grand and tranquil outlook over its own private walled garden of around one acre (in excess of 4,000 square meters) and includes a detached staff cottage, extensive parking and space for a tennis court.

The mansion was built in 1915 by the celebrated architect Edward P. Warren (1856-1937) who was famous for designing many of the most prestigious college buildings at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, as well as many monuments and grand residences throughout England.

The owner was Colonel Grove-Hills, the most prominent astronomer of the time who occupied the position of President of the Royal Astronomical Society.

It remained almost unchanged in private ownership until the early 1950s when it became an Ambassadorial residence. It continued as a diplomatic residence until January 2001, when it reverted to the freeholders the Phillimore Estate.

In that year the property was purchased freehold by the present owners who have spent seven years pursuing, and successfully obtaining, planning permission to redevelop the property into an extraordinary mansion unequalled in Central London.

  3. 3. A COUNTRY MANSION THE HISTORY A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire the freehold of one of the last grand residences to be built on this scale in Central London. Located between Kensington Palace and Holland Park, this wonderful mansion enjoys a grand and tranquil outlook over its own private walled garden of around one acre (in excess of 4,000 square meters) and includes a detached staff cottage, extensive parking and space for a tennis court. The mansion was built in 1915 by the celebrated architect Edward P. Warren (1856-1937) who was famous for designing many of the most prestigious college buildings at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, as well as many monuments and grand residences throughout England. The owner was Colonel Grove-Hills, the most prominent astronomer of the time who occupied the position of President of the Royal Astronomical Society. It remained almost unchanged in private ownership until the early 1950s when it became an Ambassadorial residence. It continued as a diplomatic residence until January 2001, when it reverted to the freeholders the Phillimore Estate. In that year the property was purchased freehold by the present owners who have spent seven years pursuing, and successfully obtaining, planning permission to redevelop the property into an extraordinary mansion unequalled in Central London.
  4. 4. IN CENTRAL LONDON THE OPPORTUNITY The planning permission allows for a total of approximately 30,000 square feet (approximately 3,000 square meters) of built up area including a main house with 8 guest bedroom suites and 2 staff bedroom suites. There are a further 3 bedrooms in the separate staff cottage, a tennis court, a garden pavilion and enclosed garage in the garden. The grounds are entered by driving through the main gates past the guard house and up a carriage driveway to the main mansion. The entertainment areas include several living rooms as well as a spa, a 25 metre swimming pool, a bar/nightclub, gym, sauna, steam room, cinema, squash court, wine cellar, wine tasting room and much more. There is no property in central London that can offer the same scale of luxury and facilities. Work has not yet begun on the property and the new owner would be able to design the interior exactly to his or her standards and taste. The property is offered for sale (Freehold) with full planning permission. The present owners have already assembled the full professional development team including budgets and time frames. The new owner can engage the same team to develop it to his or her exact taste and requirements. The images in the brochure illustrate how the property can potentially develop in accordance with the planning permission. Clearly the new owner may chose a completely different course of development while still keeping within the planning regulations.
