The period façade conceals this private house at the quiet end of Charles Street with interior design by Bill Bennette; newly built and virtually detached, the house covers seven floors and boasts fantastic entertaining space, a swimming pool, cinema, two roof terraces and a master bedroom suite that occupies the entire first floor.
The elegant reception room on the ground floor opens onto to a 216 sq ft patio and the reception room on the lower ground floor leads on to a striking double height dining room and adjoining bespoke kitchen.
The lower part of the house offers a swimming pool complex with steam room, gym with shower room and a media room.
There is also a maid’s bedroom with shower room on the ground floor with its own side entrance to the house.
The master suite with dressing areas, study and his & her bathrooms occupies the entire first floor whilst three guest bedroom suites are situated on the second floor.
On the third floor a central pavilion opens onto two roof terraces totalling 866 square feet, the south elevation of the house and the pavilion are clad in 4,080 individual bespoke folded aluminium leaves in varying shades of bronze that ‘mirror an established Virginia Creeper’.
With over 8,500 square feet of accommodation and over 1,000 square feet of outside space this astounding house is quite exceptional, with Westminster Planning Committee describing it as ‘striking’ and ‘raising the bar for design within the borough’ and needs to be seen to appreciate the quality of architecture, design and finish.
