Situated in the heart of Queen’s Gate Place Mews, South Kensington, is a spectacular three-bedroom mews house, recently undergoing a complete boutique-hotel-style revamp. Providing over 2,382 sq. ft. of accommodation across four floors, the charming dwelling comprises a spacious reception room, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and guest WC, kitchen/dining room and utility room. There is also the potential to create space for a secure parking garage.

On the market for £4.95 million, with South Kensington specialists, Wilfords, this mews house could be perfect for car lovers, with one of London’s finest classic car showrooms, Fiskens, situated directly opposite.

Recently refurbished to increase the size of the basement garage, as well as install a modern car lift, which pops out of the floor, the showroom and art gallery has graced the cobbled mews of Queens Gate Place since the turn of the 20th Century, having housed some of the greatest cars in the world. Due to Fiskens’ popularity, this quaint and peaceful mews has long been an important figure of the world’s classic car trade.

Queens Gate Place Mews was also, until recently, home to the esteemed film director Lord David Puttnam. Best known for films such as Chariots of Fire, Bugsy Malone and Midnight Express, he enjoyed his best spell as independent director, winning ten Oscars, ten Golden Globes, twenty-five Baftas and the Palme D'Or at Cannes.

Geoff Wilford, Director at Wilfords, commented: “Queen’s Gate Place Mews is a quintessentially London mews, with its cobbled street and a grand archway as the main entrance and exit point. Whilst the majority of the buildings all retain their period facades most have been completely modernised internally with a number also having been extended significantly to create homes of mansion proportions.

“The home itself at number 25 has been designed to offer a thoughtful blend between classic and contemporary, which is perfect for an array of potential purchasers from single professionals to families and older couples looking for a city Pied-à-terre.”

The mews home is entered via a secure front door, which leads onto an open corridor. Separated by industrial-style bi-fold doors, the entrance leads onto a spacious reception room, which itself can separated via a sliding partition to create a secure parking garage.

On the ground floor is the kitchen/dining room, complete with Gaggenau appliances, utility room and guest WC. The first floor provides two guest bedrooms suites, whilst the second floor is the stylish master bedroom suite, which features an expansive walk-in-wardrobe.

The design of the home is a luxurious mixture of taupe and off-white furnishings, with a mixture of marble bathrooms, dark oak flooring and natural light flowing into each room through large windows and skylights.

Dating back to 1866, Queen’s Gate Place Mews were originally connected to large terraced houses with elegant facades facing on to gardens. The properties were often small buildings used by the servants of the house, as well as featuring horse stalls and a carriage house.

Property of the Week

Now part of the ‘Queen’s Gate’ Conservation Area, the building exteriors, cobbled streets and archway are protected to retain the history and character of the area. Now the quaint cobbled area is a popular central London enclave attracting a number of notable residents, similar to the nearby Queen’s Gate Mews, which was once the home of Guy Ritchie and Madonna, as well as featuring in a number of hit television shows and blockbuster movies.

25 Queen’s Gate Place Mews is on the market with Wilfords at £4.95 million, for further information contact Tel: 020 7361 0400  or visit: www.wilfords.com
