Located on Upper Cheyne Row, the studio turned 7,000 sq ft super-home is discreetly tucked away behind a sleek minimalist front exterior, unfolding onto a huge 2,000 sq ft reception room with 4m high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor area.

The four-storey home has five bedrooms, including a master suite complete with stairs up to a private study and roof terrace, a kitchen/breakfast room, TV room, family room, gymnasium and fitness studio, plus secure off-street parking for two cars.

Occupying land that was once part of the adjacent Our Most Holy Redeemer & St Thomas More Church, the home retains elements of the church’s former rear wing, perfectly blending a section of the historic Grade II Listed building with crisp modern design.

The reception room occupies the majority of the ground floor, complete with access to the East Garden and patio garden. There’s also an open-plan kitchen complete with Miele appliances, breakfast bar and full-length glazed windows opening onto a courtyard.

The first floor comprises four guest bedroom suites fitted with large roof windows, a TV room with in-built surround sound speaker and the duplex master bedroom suite.

On the lower ground floor is a fitness studio with mirror-lined wall, ballet barre and high-tech gym equipment, as well as a generous family room also on this level which could.

Historically, the street was popular with the city’s cultural set, including Leigh Hunt, who was a central figure of the Romantic movement in England in the nineteenth century, and former British Spy Greville Wynne, who played a pivotal role in shaping the events of the Cold War.

The prospective purchaser will find themselves neighbours with the likes of Dyson CEO James Dyson and Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman.

Upper Cheyne Row is for sale at £22 million through Russell Simpson on 020 7225 0277 or Knight Frank on 020 3051 2509. Viewings by appointment only
