A couple looking for some space in their relationship can have their wish granted with these semi-detached ‘his and hers’ houses on the market with Russell Simpson for £12.75 million each.
And to avoid any arguments on picking which side, the two properties are mirror images of each other and have exactly the same amount of floor space.
The 5,778 square-foot homes each have six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a double reception room, cinema room, steam room and 12-metre long swimming pool.
The site of the semis, in Kensington, London, was previously a disused mansion, which was demolished and redeveloped into the two brand new luxurious homes. They have now been put on the market for £25.5 million together or £12.75 million each. Each house has cutting-edge homeware technology and multi-room sound systems.
Alan Russell, founder of Russell Simpson estate agency, said: ‘This is a unique opportunity to own mirror image, adjoining properties.
‘Whilst this tends to be seen more often on the continent, this is incredibly rare in the UK, with each individual property tending to have its own character. This is why we foresee overseas buyers taking an interest in these properties, either a young European couple attracted by the fascinating layout or a buyer from the Middle East who could be interested taking advantage of purchasing both for their wider family.’
The inside of both properties boasts high ceilings and and large French windows to create a spacious atmosphere. As well as the upstairs, the basement floors are also prepped for entertaining.
There are home cinemas along with a temperature-controlled 200-bottle wine storage. A pool complex features a fully-retractable remote controlled pool cover and bars plus a staff bedroom suite feature in the basement.
The houses both overlook 1,000 square foot gardens designed by Chelsea Flower Show gold medallist Philip Nixon.
