Location: London, England
Price: £4.95 million (US$6.5 million)
In the heart of London’s affluent Belgravia district stands a newly renovated three-bedroom apartment that encompasses the third and fourth floors of a Grade II-listed freehold building.
The spacious flat’s open-plan layout benefits from a conveniently located staircase.
“What’s nice is that the staircase is where it would have been originally but they’ve made it a double-height space as you enter the flat, which is really beautiful,” said Leo Russell, sales negotiator at Russell Simpson. “There is an open-plan room for the reception space and the dining area. Plus, being three windows wide, the east/west facing orientation lets in fantastic light.”
Kapital Estates bought the circa-1890s building and remade it into three apartments, with a remodel that finished last year.
“Each of the three flats was redone very recently,” Mr. Russell said. “Structurally, it’s basically a new build, but they quite cleverly took moldings from some of the ornate cornice work from the first floor and put them into the top floor to give it the same sense of historic grandeur.
“This building also has a wide amount of space between it and the neighbors, which affords a nice sense of privacy,” Mr. Russell added. “As this is in the heart of London, that makes these flats quite special.”
