Wilton Crescent, Belgravia (SOLD)
Situated within one of London’s most elegant crescents, Wilton Crescent is a beautiful grade II listed townhouse. Rarely for this part of Belgravia the main house is offered together with it’s original mews house and incorporates two garages, a private enclosed garden and a roof garden.
Whilst the property has recently been internally refurbished, the amount and quality of living space could be significantly enhanced to meet those with aspirations to live in a more contemporary fashion.
The main house is grade listed and spread across six stories. The house features 5 bedrooms, 2 drawings rooms, 3 reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room and terrace area. The lower ground floor also includes a wine store, vault, dining and utility rooms. Currently the property does not have a basement.
The Mews House comes with 2 garages, 2 bedrooms, a reception room, kitchen, dining room and bathroom. Access to the mews house is via Belgrave Mews.
Janine Stone & Co visited Wilton Crescent and made the following observations:
“Listed homes like this are naturally challenging to lay out because their narrow facades often lock-in where you can and can’t place rooms. However the lower ground floor and basement present opportunities for this home to feature all the necessary spaces for contemporary living.”
- On a listed building most of the opportunities for design alterations will exist on the lower ground floor. By creating openings from this floor into the garden a versatile family space can be created.
- Digging out a basement for this property would allow the inclusion of other spaces, such as a media room, gym and entertainment space.
- For the first time an undercover route between the main house and mews house could exist, via the addition of a basement.
- The subterranean space that exists between the two buildings, would even allow for a pool and sauna to be installed. Natural light could be brought into this space via a flat panel light well built with the garden landscape.
To assist interested buyers of this property understand their development options, Janine Stone & Co. has been asked by Savills to provide concept and development consultations. It can be arranged for these complimentary consultations to be take place at the property or in our London studio. Janine Stone & Co. will provide guidance on architecture styles, refurbishment and planning considerations, in addition to helping interested parties to develop their early design ideas, into floor plans with estimated project costs and timelines for realisation.
Should a successful acquisition take place, we would be happy to take these initial concepts, through to a full concept and subsequent planning, design and build phases.
