The former residence of the Earl of Suffolk is available either to rent or to buy


THE PROPERTY: A Grade II-six-storey townhouse that was designed by Henry Holland, best known as the visionary architect behind the original Marine Pavilion in Brighton

THE LOCATION: A prime spot on the border of Chelsea and Harrods, just moments from Harrods, with access to the private gardens on Hans Place and Cadogan Square

THE INTERIOR: The spacious home, which dates back to 1792 and was bought by Henry Howard, 19th Earl of Suffolk, in 1904, features an Edwardian wing complete with a wood-panelled library (originally used as a billiards room) and double reception room; a master-bedroom suite with walk-in dressing room; six further bedrooms; a gym; a wine-cellar; and a garage with electric-car charging point

WHY WE LOVE IT: With a large square footage and privileged access to a peaceful garden square, this property combines an enviable urban location with a tranquil setting and a historic ambience
