Townhouse combines period features with modern luxuryTuesday, 06 March 2012 04:32
Where: Fitzhardinge Street, London
Price: £16 million
This week’s luxury property has a prime location in the middle of London.
The building is a Grade-II listed period townhouse in a highly coveted street in the city.
The exterior retains its period charm with the tell-tale white slabs along the ground level of the building indicating the luxury that lies within.
The front door opens onto a glamorous foyer with high-gloss floors and a feature fireplace.
This is the first indicator that the property has been painstakingly restored to incorporate the period pieces with the contemporary style.
Most of the rooms have high ceilings with ornate cornices and spacious layouts.
The main lounge room is a focal point of the home with a unique circular-designed sitting area.
The chandelier, like all of the light fixtures in the home, is made from Murano glass with Swarovski crystal also intricately crafted into the chandelier in the kitchen.
The master bedroom itself is the size of an average London flat.
It has a beautifully upholstered bed overlooking a sitting and home entertainment area.
Continue around the corner to the ensuite featuring marble direct from Italy.
State-of-the-art appliances have been installed but do not take away from the clean lines of the rooms.
An iPad is used to control the air conditioning, under-floor heating, audiovisual equipment and lighting.
The building also contains a swimming pool, sauna and steam room for those days when relaxation is paramount.
