Regent’s Park redevelopment of a regency mansionMonday, 13 August 2012 11:25
Where: 10 Cornwall Terrace, Regent’s Park
What: The Paget House
This week’s luxury property is an impressive redevelopment with a more impressive past resident.
The Paget House is located in Cornwall Terrace in Regent’s Park, a coveted location with views of the parkland.
This magnificent residence was once home to philanthropist Lady Muriel Paget, wife of Richard Arthur Surtees Paget.
Ms Paget is recorded at the residence of this specific home from 1901 until 1902.
If her name sounds familiar it is because of her tireless work for the sick and poor.
Lady Muriel Paget was appointed honorary secretary of the Southwark Invalid Kitchen and helped to provide food for those too poor to afford it.
She then went on to set up a hospital in St Petersburg, Russia during World War I to care for wounded soldiers.
She played a major role in developing field hospitals and food kitchens in the Ukraine, and established numerous hospitals throughout Eastern Europe after the war.
She was awarded both the OBE and the CBE for her philanthropic works and became a well-known figure in the UK.
While the home’s grandeur remains from Ms Paget’s time it has undergone heavy refurbishment to create a stretch of offices and eight beautiful homes.
The home pictured has stunning views of Regent's Park making for a leafy outlook from most rooms.
The house retains some of its original classical features such as ornate ceilings and fireplaces.
But the interiors are modern featuring light tones, patterned furniture and feature artworks.
As a Grade I listed regency mansion it was once also occupied by members of nobility, admirals, generals and titled folk such as Blackwood House, Siddons House, Paget House, Silk House, Stanley House, Carruthers House, Boswall House and Lethbridge House
This means the home has plenty of great talking points when guests are over and allows residents to own a piece of history.
During the redevelopment the Crown Estate permitted the creation of lateral space within this terrace.
This means the home has its own a passenger lift, garage and a separate mews flat with additional garaging.
The home has an entrance hall, reception room, dining room, several bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a stunning modern kitchen.
For added luxury there is also a spa area and media room.
Paget House, one of the remaining Cornwall Terrace properties, is for sale for through Beauchamp Estates, visit the website for more information.
