Being offered to the market for the first time in 51 years is the opportunity to purchase a freehold house which has been thoughtfully divided into four residences in one of London's most exclusive addresses, in Belgravia.
Cadogan Place is equidistant from Knightsbridge and Sloane Square underground stations, and is within walking distance of a number of outstanding schools: Garden House, Hill House, Sussex House, Knightsbridge School and More House. The world famous restaurants, cafes, markets and boutiques that Knightsbridge, Belgravia and Chelsea have to offer are all within close proximity.
The house is one of the original on the street, built in the early 1800s. The property is perfectly positioned to enjoy the direct views over the beautifully-tended 8-acre private garden fronting Cadogan Place. The gardens can only be accessed by local residents and are on a subscription basis. These include sunny lawns, sculptures, a 'pollinator meadow', tennis courts and a playground. Once site of the 18th century London Botanic Garden, today it is home to some rare 300-year-old mulberry trees, as well as more recently introduced unusual plants, such as black bamboo, maples, magnolias and palms. They really do offer a sense of tranquillity in the centre of London.
When entering the house, you are greeted with charming murals and the communal stair case. The raised and lower ground floor is combined as a four bedroom apartment with the bedrooms (two en suite) being located on the lower ground. There are a further two cloakrooms, a utility room and access to storage vaults. Two of the bedrooms share a private patio and the principal bedroom has direct access to the garden. The raised ground floor offers ample entertaining space with a kitchen, front reception room, a bathroom and a grand formal reception room with a beautiful bay window at the rear which has access to a terrace.
The house also offers off-street parking for two cars, which is accessed from Cadogan Lane at the back of the house. The basement bedroom and ground floor terrace can be accessed from the parking area.
The first floor offers a one double bedroom apartment with an elegant drawing room with floor to ceiling windows, a traditional fire place and a private west facing balcony with direct views over Cadogan Place gardens.
The second floor provides a two bedroom apartment which is flooded with natural light due to the west and east facing orientations.
The third, fourth and fifth floors combine to make the fourth flat which has a separate reception room, dining room and kitchen on the third floor, two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the fourth and then a utility room on the fifth as well as access to the roof. Further benefits include a lift which runs from the ground floor to each apartment.
The exterior has been fully refurbished including a new roof. Spanning approximately 6,459 Sq Ft with the possibility to add a Mansard room (which the current owner has obtained permission for), the property is incredibly versatile and is suitable for anyone looking for long term investments or as the current owners use the property, for a family residence.
