Reception roomIf you are looking for somewhere to house your private art collection – oh, and your family – here is a contender.

Behind the original facade of a grand Victorian house a two-year reconstruction project has completely remodelled the interior into a ‘Tate Modern-style’ five- or six-bedroom family home.

The design, which included constructing a basement and installing an open-plan central concrete staircase, has produced voluminous spaces with double height ceilings and professional art gallery lighting.

The basement dining room, with an aquarium set into one of the walls, connects to a wine cellar and media lounge to create a 50ft space for showing off your art.

It’s on the upmarket and super expensive Glebe Place in London’s Chelsea, and the price is enough to give you an art attack. And that’s without the artwork. If you want any of the pieces in the house, you’ll have to negotiate for them separately. The freehold is on the market for £14m through Russell Simpson.
