Live Like Fashion Royalty In Former London Home of Alexander McQueen

30.01.18

The former home of fashion icon Alexander McQueen, one of the most innovative and impressive British designers of all time, has hit the market for rental.

The two-bedroom London home – available through luxury boutique estate agents Rokstone - radiates McQueen’s signature style with a contemporary design and quirky features. The four-storey townhouse, facing out onto Victoria Park, was designed by Huw Burgess after McQueen purchased the property in 2002 for £700,000.

Working closely alongside Huw, McQueen spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on the refurbishment of the home and a further £120,000 on a koi garden designed by Brooke Baker. The townhouse’s current vendor has kept almost all of McQueen’s original design and furnishings, including a state-of-the-art sound system and smart home facilities that control the blinds, heating, lighting, music and television.

The ground floor of 82 Cadogan Terrace has a spacious reception room featuring brick walls, high ceilings and polished wood flooring, creating New York loft vibe with contemporary art and colourful furnishings. The ground floor also provides a gym space and wet room as well as a guest bathroom.

The open plan entrance hall on the first floor of the townhouse has 15-foot- high ceilings and leads onto the guest bedroom suite with a private shower room.  To the right of the entrance hall are floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to the open plan kitchen, designed in a contemporary and minimalist fashion with white walls and Gaggenau appliances.

The kitchen provides access to McQueen’s original garden and koi-pond. At the rear of the garden there is a relaxation room, with a speaker system and tranquil views onto the water.

The second floor of the townhouse hosts another reception room, the centerpiece of which is Alexander McQueen’s original ‘U’ shaped mustard embellished couch. The glass coffee table is positioned over a reinforced glass floor which provides views down into the kitchen below.

The wall is fitted with state-of-the-art speakers and a bespoke black mounted fireplace. Centred in the other side of the room is a Yamaha grand piano as well as African themed artwork and another wall mounted fireplace.

The master bedroom takes the entire third floor, with the bed positioned at the centre of the room so residents will enjoy the amazing view onto Victoria Park from the restored sash windows. The master-en-suite bathroom contains a freestanding white stone bathtub with a television facing and a contemporary grey stone vanity area. The cabinets and walls are oak with a polished finish and there is a separate discreet lavatory room.

The piece de resistance of the townhouse is the rooftop terrace. Accessible through an electric glass door, the terrace provides unrivalled views of Victoria Park from the fully functioning Jacuzzi.

“This townhouse provides an exceptional opportunity to live in a piece of fashion history,” says Becky Fatemi, Managing Director at Rokstone. “With almost all of Alexander McQueen’s original design and furnishings as well as the newly installed high specification, there is nothing like this on the rental market at the moment.”

Olivia McSweeney, Head of Lettings at Rokstone adds: “It is near impossible to find a townhouse that offers this level of design, technology and location. A chance to live with Victoria Park on your doorstep and with Alexander McQueen’s original décor makes the property completely unique”.

The townhouse is available to let for £1,600 a week. For more information please contact Rokstone on 020 7580 2030 or visit www.rokstone.com
