Built in the early 18th century, the Georgian-style houses in one of London’s one most exclusive enclaves, Connaught Square, still top the list for ultra rich buyers. The stately and graciously proportioned classical brick buildings with picturesque white stucco accents around a private communal garden in the square are marked by understated elegance. And according to Forbes, a 200-year old, 4,319 square-foot Georgian property in Connaught Square has recently been put on the market.
Despite its age, the exquisite property has been carefully preserved over the years to ensure it upholds its grandeur while also providing seamless living experiences. Priced at $9M, this sumptuous architectural masterpiece is spread over six floors and boasts seven opulent bedrooms and four bathrooms, among other amenities.
Full of character throughout, the unique building features balconies in the front and rear of the property while the third-floor terrace showcases fascinating city views.
The ground floor boasts a stately reception hall, a kitchen embellished with granite countertops, a family room, a centre island, and a living room with a fireplace that sets a welcoming tone for the entire space. While the open design and high ceiling on the first floor make this luxury property a perfect mix of modernity and regality, the herringbone floors, a ceiling medallion, and the dentil crown moulding add elegance to the dining space.
Moving on to the second floor, the primary bedroom, plus an en-suite bathroom and private dressing space, occupies it entirely, whereas the upper floors are occupied by office rooms and additional bedrooms. A separate entrance, a well-equipped gym, two storage spaces, and a bedroom on the lower-ground floor ensure the property epitomises resplendence. The residents of this building get exclusive access to the picturesque private communal gardens.
One of the largest Georgian properties in Connaught Square, this grandiose townhouse is among the few mansions that haven’t purchased the freehold. Owned by Church Commissioners for England, the land can be leased for 94 years for roughly £2,200 a year.
The square is adjacent to Connaught Village, one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods and cultural “hotspots” in London, famous for luxury retail outlets, vibrant nightlife, and world-class dining.
Famous for the archetypal Georgian terraced houses and serene central gardens just a few minutes from Hyde Park, Connaught Square has been the home of many renowned residents, including solicitors, prime ministers, TV presenters, and more.
With notable people living in Connaught Square, the demand for luxury property management services such as The London Management Company is also getting a push in the area. A high-end residential property management service ensures a client’s property is managed and maintained to the highest standards.
Designed by the renowned architect Thomas Allason, Connaught Square was redeveloped following the 19th-century architectural trend of incorporating green space into residential areas. Built across the Hyde Park Estate, Connaught Square was laid out for building in 1821, and the construction of most houses was finished by 1828.
