London is notorious for its impressive property market – houses of all shapes and sizes can be found across the capital, including some of the most luxurious in the world. One of the most expensive areas in London in which to buy a house is Mayfair, where houses are particularly lavish in the City of Westminster.
A Victorian terraced home on the property market is a key example of this fact. The luxurious mansion, something most people can only imagine, is being sold for an eye-watering £55 million. This amount is unimaginable for most, especially in the current economic climate where the cost of living is sky-high.
The Grafton Street mansion has striking features that give it a modern yet royal and traditional feel. Therefore , it may not be surprising to learn that the home was also once the headquarters of Gucci. Famous names like Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford and Domenico De Sole have also been associated with the house.
The mansion boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms and is the last remaining townhouse on Grafton Road. The contemporary mansion has many features including a Crest automation system, which makes the house very secure, and combines period features with contemporary living. It also features high ceilings, complementing the principle reception room with its jaw-dropping light piece.
The principle suite located across the top two floors consists of a master bedroom, lounge area, kitchenette and a private study area. It also has an illuminated staircase, fitted wardrobes and striking features throughout.
The basement harbours the entertainment rooms which feature a two-metre plunge pool, sauna, shower room and a gym, accompanied with the inbuilt mirror fitness trainer plus spa lounge.
There’s no shortage of amazing features throughout this house – however , there’s also no doubt that anyone hoping to buy such a home will also have a hefty amount in their bank account, especially given this home is found in the heart of London.
Luxury properties in Mayfair are not cheap, and prices can easily reach the millions. According to Mayfair’s Foxtons, the average flat in the area can cost over £2 million and the average house price can peak to almost a staggering £12 million. Prices vary from region to area in the capital, but it’s no secret that Mayfair is one of the priciest when it comes to buying luxury homes.
