A high end Belgravia house which has recently gone on the market would make the ideal blank canvas for displaying a purchaser’s art collection.
The house on Wilton Crescent was originally built in 1821 as two separate houses and then merged into one in 1982. The current layout offers around 8,400 sq.ft. of space. To create the mega-mansion, the architects inserted connecting doors on all floors, creating lateral living space on six levels. The layout makes it ideal for a use of scale, such as creating a personal art gallery or health and leisure complex.
Becky Fatemi, Managing Director of selling agents Rokstone, commented: “Wilton Crescent is one of the finest homes to come to the Belgravia market in many years, it’s quite simply ‘the Picasso Mansion’ ideal for showcasing artwork. Not only does it offer vast living space for a family, but it’s very rare to find a home in Belgravia with such expansive lateral living space above ground, created from the joining of two properties. There’s less than half a dozen mega-mansions in Belgravia and Knightsbridge, and Wilton Crescent offers a mega-mansion as one palatial trophy home.”
This kind of property shows how important layout and design is to buyers in this market. While lesser buyers might look for space alone, mega-mansion buyers look for properties that will showcase their particular high end lifestyle.
