Located on the quiet, leafy and highly sought after Gilston Road, in The Boltons Conservation Area of Chelsea, the double-fronted stuccoed house is set back from the road and surrounded by a high wall to ensure ultimate privacy. The end-of-terrace property capitalises on outside space with gravelled areas to the front and side of the home and a west-facing landscaped garden at the rear, designed to allow for dining, entertaining and other uses.
Inside, the townhouse its a different experience. Accessed via a grand entrance flanked by pillars, visitors arrive into a striking hallway in which a modern white staircase is offset against glossy black walls. To the left and right of the entrance hall are a large reception room with French doors opening onto the garden as well as a large formal dining room. Both rooms maximise on natural light thanks to large windows, while combining modern colour palettes and statement materials with traditional furnishings and cosy accents.
The theme continues as you wonder upstairs where a bright and airy, yet masculine, double bedroom suite can be found alongside a contemporary wood panelled study that can also be used as a secondary sitting room. Up another level and the entire second floor is given over to an impressive master bedroom suite. Decked out in elegant shades of grey and silver, with rich accents, the sumptuous bedroom is accompanied by a large walk-in wardrobe and a spacious, minimalist bathroom with double sinks. The third double bedroom is located on the lower ground floor, which is also home to a variety of functional and entertainment spaces, including a large kitchen, wine cellar, gym, steam room, laundry and cloakroom.
So how much does a prime London real estate like this townhouse cost? Keeping in mind its seal of approval from the international arbiter of good taste? Well, unfortunately just like one of Mr.Ford’s sharply tailored bespoke suits, it’s price on application only.
