Listing of the Day
Location: Knightsbridge, London
Price: £12 million (US$17.02 million)
Burberry, Chanel, Dior and Vivienne Westwood are just a few of the many designer stores within a five-minute walk of this refurbished five-bedroom townhouse. The Grade II-listed Victorian-era home in London’s Knightsbridge also has the shopping havens of Harrods and Harvey Nichols department stores and Sloane Street on its doorstep.
This six-story mid-terrace brick house is ideal for a buyer with a serious wardrobe—the top-floor bedroom has a corridor-like dressing room with full-length fitted wardrobes on both sides, while the master bedroom has a dressing room with a wall of fitted wardrobes.
It’s not just the wardrobes that are roomy in this house, though. With more than 4,000 square feet of living space, it’s big enough for a large family to spread out in.
The owners, who are from Switzerland and use the home during the summer months, have decided to sell it because it is too large for them now that their children have grown up.
According to selling agent Tom Bond, the house was refurbished from top to bottom two years ago by its owners and is in great condition. The fully-fitted kitchen has a contemporary feel, with streamlined cabinetry and a wooden breakfast bar, while the high ceilings with cornicing and traditional fireplace make the drawing room feel grand yet homely.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom house spans 4,080 square feet. There’s a self-contained one-bedroom apartment on the ground floor.
There is a gym on the ground floor as well as a self-contained one-bedroom flat with a separate access, which could be used as staff quarters, as a graduate or granny flat or rented privately.
The first-floor drawing room opens onto a balcony overlooking the street to the front and access to a decked private roof terrace to the rear, with an outdoor seating area.

Wilton Place lies between Knightsbridge to the north and Wilton Crescent to the south and is equidistant between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner tube stations.
Another perk of the location is that Wilton Place is home to The Berkeley, a chic five-star landmark hotel featuring the sophisticated two- Michelin-starred restaurant Marcus, which is run by chef Marcus Wareing.
Belgravia with its beautiful terraces of white stucco homes and gardens squares is a short walk away.
