Located across from Holland Park and the esteemed London Design Museum sits a Grade II Listed six-storey townhouse on Earls Terrace. The home, located within a West London celebrity hotspot, comprises five bedrooms, six bathrooms, four reception rooms, a 90-foot rear garden and private underground parking. It also features a spectacular Grecian-inspired spa complex on the basement floor, complete with a 10-metre swimming pool and steam room.
Benefiting from access to the expansive private communal gardens of Edwardes Square, the grand home on Earls Terrace is currently on the market for £10.25m with leading estate agents Russell Simpson and Knight Frank.
Bertie Russell, Director at Russell Simpson said, “It is rare to find a Listed home of such proportions complete with a dedicated spa complex, whilst it is becoming increasingly rare to find such basement space in light of recent restrictions. Therefore, this home has an allure to buyers looking for a home with real period charm and character coupled with the modern luxuries that are now so in-demand.”
The home itself is an imposing townhouse with a raised ground floor sitting room, dining room and kitchen. A pretty wrought iron staircase leads from the kitchen down to the 90 ft. south-facing garden, where there is a patio, and a wooden gate in the rear wall that leads out to Edwardes Square.
On the first floor is a grand drawing room with three floor-to-ceililng windows and impressive 14-foot ceiling heights. A bookshelf-lined study at the rear then leads out onto the first floor terrace overlooking the garden and Edwardes Square. The master bedroom occupies the entire second floor, complete with walk-in dressing room and master bathroom. Situated on the top floor are three family bedrooms with two bathrooms.
The lower ground floor comprises a large family room with private rear garden. A further guest bedroom, which could be utilised as staff quarters, is also located on the lower ground floor.
Some of the standout features of the home are the exceptional wellness facilities situated on the basement floor, including the private spa area, complete with 33 foot (10 metre) swimming pool, lined with Grecian-style semi-columns and a steam room. In addition, there is underground parking for two cars accessed directly from the house as well as 24/7 security, CCTV cameras and an onsite porter service.
Residents of Earls Terrace benefit from access to the Grade II Listed 3 acre private gardens of Edwardes Square. The communal gardens were laid out in 1812 and have attracted a number of well-known residents, including the author Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson, popular British comedian Frankie Howerd, Harry Potter author JK Rowling and pop superstar Madonna.
Situated in one of London’s most sought-after areas, Earls Terrace is within easy access of Holland Park, Kensington High Street, as well as being close to Hyde Park and the museums and galleries of South Kensington.
