Dream Of A Developer


The Vicarage in Chiswick, one of the luxurious London family homes of Kam Babaee, the CEO of super-prime developer K10 Group, is for sale on leafy Stamford Brook Road, a magnificent 7,075 square foot former vicarage, now a fully modernised luxury residence providing seven-bedrooms, four-reception rooms, courtyard garden, lower ground floor leisure and entertainment space, and off-street parking, available via DEXTERS.

The reception rooms and courtyard garden of The Vicarage can host events for up to 100 people and the grand house has been the site of many glamorous dinners, private parties and charity fundraisers, hosted by Kam Babaee, and attended by A-list friends, business colleagues and contacts from the worlds of property, business, music, movie/TV, politics and Royalty.

Photos of the house have been used to promote BBC2’s recent TV hit Crazy Rich Agents: Selling Dream Homes which starred Kam Babaee. Guests at The Vicarage have included British and overseas royalty and business leaders including John Caudwell, Sir James Dyson and Dragons Den stars Duncan Bannatyne, Peter Jones and James Caan. Guests from the music industry have included Simon Cowell, Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, Nadir Khayat (RedOne) and the Jackson brothers, Jermaine Jackson, Jackie, Tito and Marlon; and from the movie/TV world Antonio Banderas, Eva Longoria and Tamara Ecclestone. The larger events have always focused on helping to raise money for the various charities that Kam Babaee supports including autism charities, Children in Need and John Caudwell’s charity Caudwell Children..

Located on a large plot on the corner of Stamford Brook Road and Flanchford Road, The Vicarage, was originally built in 1886 in Victorian-era Gothic-revival style to serve the neighbouring church of St Mary’s, designed by the same architect Chas J Gladman, with the memorial stone of the church and vicarage complex laid by HRH Princess Mary Adelaide, the Duchess of Teck (1833-1897), the mother of HM Queen Mary and the great-grandmother of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

St Mary's closed in 1982 with The Vicarage then becoming a private home and the church converted into flats in 1984. From 1982 The Vicarage was owned by two families before being purchased by Kam Babaee in 1999 as a West London home for his family, his children attending the nearby Harrodian School.

In 2003 Kam Babaee engaged architect and heritage specialist Anthony Mcguire and a team of artisans to undertake a meticulous refurbishment, enlargement and modernisation of the vicarage in order to transform it onto a grand super-prime residence, one of the finest homes in West London.

British bespoke kitchen and furniture maker Smallbone, created the handmade family kitchen, bespoke cocktail bar, walk-in main dressing room, fitted bedroom wardrobes and feature architraves, doors and arched Gothic windows in the house.

The remodelling, which included the creation of a new lower ground floor, was completed in 2005 and the project inspired Kam Babaee to launch his now acclaimed property company K10 Group in 2008, the property serving as the precursor to the lavish luxury heritage restorations and new-builds for which K10 Group is now renowned.

K10 Group projects today include Doughty House in Richmond, Culross House in Mayfair, and Amberwood House in Knightsbridge. Kam Babaee is also the star of hit high-end TV property shows including BBC2’s Crazy Rich Agents: Selling Dream Homes, Channel 4’s Britain’s Most Expensive Houses, Channel 5’s Sally Lindsay’s Posh Sleepover and Channel 4’s Extraordinary Extensions starring award-winning rapper Tinie Tempah.

Behind grand wrought-iron black railings and double gates, The Vicarage provides substantial accommodation over lower ground, ground and two upper floors complete with a spacious courtyard garden and off-street parking for four cars. The exacting refurbishment highlighted both historic features, such as heavenly ceiling heights and limestone fireplaces, and reinstated or created new ones in keeping with the Gothic style.

The impressive ground-floor entrance hall has an original limestone fireplace bearing the date AD1886 and granite flooring, off the hall is the Gothic style staircase leading to the upper floors, with original stained glass windows on the landings cascading the stairwell and hall with natural light.

The centrepiece of the house is the magnificent 40ft long, light-flooded reception room, with oak parquet flooring, arched Gothic windows, an original Victorian fireplace and a high ceiling with exquisite ceiling roses and plasterwork and at one end a bespoke cocktail bar by Smallbone.

Adjoining the main reception room is a stunning conservatory, which serves as a second reception room and opens onto a wraparound courtyard garden, with statuary, fountains and an ornate Gothic folly. This glamorous space, when decked out with awnings and lighting, has been the scene of many of the parties and fundraising events for charity.

The bespoke Smallbone oak kitchen features specially commissioned wood-framed lancet-style windows: the motif of the Gothic-style arch a constant refrain throughout the home, seen in flooring detail, cabinetry and cornicing.

The ground floor is complete with a dining room/library, featuring an original fireplace and lined with bespoke fitted bookcases designed by Smallbone, and a guest cloakroom.

The oak staircase, with a landing opening onto an outside balcony, leads to the first floor which features the principal bedroom suite with a bedroom, ensuite bathroom and extensive walk-in dressing room lined with bespoke Smallbone fitted cupboards. Two further bedrooms, both with built-in storage by Smallbone, and a family bathroom complete this floor.

The second floor, with four double bedrooms (two ensuite), a kitchen/utility area and a TV lounge area on the main landing is ideal for younger children and a nanny, or as a self-contained teenage domain.

The lower ground floor provides 2,000 square foot of space and is currently being refurbished by K10 Group to provide a spa and leisure suite, home cinema and staff accommodation. An open lightwell with staircase is being created to bring natural light and fresh air into this lower level and to connect it to the courtyard garden above.

Kam Babaee, CEO K10 Group, says: “With its sense of history, grand Victorian Gothic architecture and wonderful entertaining spaces The Vicarage is one of the finest residences in West London, its superb location in Chiswick, with its brilliant schools, made it the perfect place for a family home. It is also very special as it was one of my first significant restoration projects from which K10 Group was formed. I extended the home’s footprint by adding the lower-ground floor and conservatory, while also paying homage to the home’s ecclesiastical past, and augmenting original Gothic features. It has been a fantastic family home, as well as the site of some legendary parties, supporting many worthy charity causes.”

Hannah Thelwell, Sales Manager at DEXTERS (Hammersmith) says: “The Vicarage, just moments from Chiswick High Road, offers a discerning buyer the rare opportunity to purchase one of the best houses in the local area. Its immaculate renovation showcases the work of its owner, Kam Babaee, who through his renowned K10 Group is responsible for the refurbishment and building of some of Prime Central London’s most lavish super-prime residences.”

The Vicarage is available to buy for £6,950,000.
