DOUBLE TROUBLE: IDENTICAL MANSIONS IN KENSINGTON
A pair of identical newly-built townhouses have come on the market with John D Wood and Savills, each priced at £13.5 million. The homes, on Campden Hill Road – one of London’s most prestigious addresses – have been designed by the acclaimed architectural firm Michaelis Boyd and both have kept the appearance of an elegant Victorian townhouse to stay faithful to the area’s heritage.
Despite the period appearance, the new homes in Kensington, which mirror each other, incorporate the highest standards of modern construction including geothermal heat pumps. The houses spread over 5,500sq ft and five storeys and has been designed by Honor Riley Design, which has created a timeless look.
Natural light floods through the windows and the glass walls, bringing the outside in and complementing the natural materials such as oak, bronze, brass, stone and Carrara marbles that have been used throughout the properties.
There is an impressive 12m indoor swimming pool with Sky shower and steam room, a relaxation area with a built-in bar, media room, master suite with a separate dressing area and en-suite bathroom with twin showers and a free standing bath.
The kitchen is a contemporary white handle-less design by Bulthaup with a Carrara marble work surface. Each house has seven bedrooms, including an impressive master suit that takes up one of the floors, five bathrooms and three reception rooms in total. The gardens have been designed by the Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal Winner Philip Nixon.
