Notting Hill’s largest and most lavish newly-built mansion has gone on sale for £25 million.
The 8,700 sq ft palatial property has a 21 metre swimming pool and a “James Bond” parking system, where cars are transported on hovering fully automated robotic platforms from the ground level to the basement.
Inspired by a Greek temple, its features include deities carved in limestone in friezes, a copper Triton weather vane on the roof and a pool with a classical frieze based on Dance to the Music of Time.
The new mansion, called Havona House, is located at 57 Pembridge Villas and is the largest newly built house to be constructed in Notting Hill in over a decade.
The double fronted, three storey stucco façade has a central entrance portico with Corinthian columns.
Inside, traditional Georgian architectural detailing has been combined with smart house technology and large open living spaces.
It features bespoke lighting, by award winning glass artist Esther Patterson of Curiousa & Curiousa, and a Pedini designed kitchen with integrated Brazza and Miele appliances and Subzero fridge, Subzero freezer and wine fridge.
Automated floor to ceiling glazed doors in the family living room open onto the 750 sq ft rear garden.
The sub-basement, meanwhile, contains a luxurious private spa.
Konstantinos Diamantopoulous, owner of Albert Bridge Properties, said: “Combining classical architecture with modern specification and Feng Shui principals, this unique family house is set apart by the quality of the specification, which incorporates fully automated driverless parking, and the abundance of entertaining space.”
Becky Fatemi, managing director of Rokstone, added that Havona House sets a benchmark for quality in the Notting Hill housing market by introducing a Mayfair level product into the marketplace.
“There is a sustained demand for large family houses in Notting Hill and the local marketplace is being transformed by new ultra-prime luxury residences, which in turn are generating premium values and sales deals,” she said.
