Belgravia's £30m mega-mansion goes up for sale
A mega-mansion created from the merger of two houses in London’s Belgravia has gone on the market for £30m.
The mansion at Wilton Crescent is an 11-bedroom, five-reception-room, Grade II-listed building and is being marketed by estate agent Rokstone.
Originally built in 1821 as two separate houses, the Wilton Crescent mega-mansion was created in 1982 when architects H. Larizadeh and Weber-Brown merged two adjacent houses into a single property that is more than 23 meters long.
Neighbouring houses in Wilton Crescent include the High Commission of Singapore and the Embassy of Luxembourg.
Becky Fatemi, managing director of Rokstone, said: “Wilton Crescent is one of the finest homes to come to 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.”
The ‘private palace’ boasts several floors, private parking, private balconies and terraces with views over St Paul’s Knightsbridge church, and staff quarters.
The building has been designed by internationally-acclaimed hotel designer Jinnie Kim throughout.
