One of the joys of London property is the variety you’ll find just around the corner, or even next door. It’s what keeps the capital fascinating and property peeps on their toes. It also makes the process of securing two identical, neighbouring mansions nigh on impossible, especially in Kensington.
As such, this proposition on Campden Hill Road is something of a one-off. Replacing a disused single residence, the two identical new-build semi-detached townhouses each have six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a double reception room, cinema room, steam room and 12-metre length swimming pool, all set across 5,778 square feet and six floors.
Each also packs a 1,000 square foot SW-facing garden designed by CFS Gold Medal Winner Philip Nixon.
Demolishing anything on this handsome street must have been a big shout, but these new additions blend in very successfully with the neighbouring Victorian facades. The spec is super-high and involves Bulthaup kitchens with Carrara marble, Lutron multi room scene lighting, Cat 5e and 6 wiring for computer network/telephone exchange, Sonos multi room sound systems, eco friendly Air Cooling, 200-bottle wine storage, ground source heat pumps and underground parking (by separate arrangement).
And as for the buyer profile? Sounds like a shoe-in for a big Middle Eastern family…
Alan Russell of Russell Simpson: “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.”
Both houses are on the market with Russell Simpson for £12.75 Million each.
