The former royal residence, located in Eaton Square, Belgravia, has reportedly gone up for sale for the first time in the last three decades for roughly £39.5M.
This notoriously stylish and magnificent residential garden square was home to some of the members of the Greek royal family through the mid to late 1940s, reported the Evening Standard.
Inside the Belgravia Trophy House
The grandiose trophy home is one of just 12 freehold houses facing the garden on Eaton Square – one of the most exquisite and exclusive postcodes in London.
Once exiled Princess Katherine and her husband lived in this palatial house for years before they left Eaton Square and eventually moved to Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
This sumptuous property is spread over six floors, standing on 10,600 sq ft of land, and comprises six majestic bedrooms, opulent reception rooms, and a gymnasium among others.
Even though it’s not a true royal palace, the ornateness of the building, the lush gardens, and the grandeur it upholds are worthy of royal designation.
The residence got a wistful refurbishment around two decades ago by the prolific interior designer Nicky Haslam who is renowned for transforming the interior of a property into a unique, timeless environment.
Originally built by Thomas Cubit between 1825 and 1826, this place of Greek royals amazes visitors with its elegance.
Boasting a hacienda-like courtyard, spacious corridors, and high ceilings, this stupendous property is now recognised for blurring the line between regency and modernity.
The resplendent property features a formal stucco and brick façade with a portico supported on Doric columns.
The ground floor includes a stately reception hall embellished with an inlaid marble floor and Corinthian columns, a formal dining space, and an arboretum with direct access to a garden terrace.
In addition, the cluster of magnificent reception spaces on the first floor presents a dizzying range of hosting options.
The majestic master bedroom suite encompasses the entire second floor while the upper floor is occupied by three additional bedrooms and a study.
The well-furnished gym, wine cellar, utility room, guest bedroom suite, and laundry room on the lower-ground floor ensure the property upholds its unique resplendence while also offering all modern conveniences.
The mews house, which connects to the main home on the lower ground level and occupies a storeroom, a garage, multiple reception spaces, and three ensuite shower rooms, can be extended into more five bedrooms if required.
Adorned with chandeliers, gilded ceiling coving, decorous marble fireplaces, wall panelling, and parquet flooring, this upscale trophy house is synonymous with ultra-luxury.
