A home with a design as outstanding as its pedigree.

The accolades of this Grade II listed building include its former usage as a royal residency, the home of humourist P.G. Wodehouse, and its expert renovation by Alexander McQueen – not to mention its spacious interiors and contemporary style. Cast your eyes upwards to the third and fourth floors of this lofty red-brick property, where a monochromatic masterpiece awaits.  

Take the lift upstairs, and enter a spacious kitchen and dining room; the epitome of sophisticated homeliness. Sweeping surfaces make preparing food a breeze, whilst a stainless-steel oven and splashback adds an edge of industrialism to the space. Sip a coffee at the large island, or seat friends around the glass dining table. In warmer climes, enjoy air conditioning throughout the home, or fling open the French windows to the balcony –the quiet thrum of Dunraven Street sits just below.  

The living room is a dialogue of parallels between light and dark, hard and soft. Gilded light plays with the ornate chandelier, emanating through the trio of sash windows. A mirrored wall amplifies the sense of space, with a soothing open fireplace for when nights draw in. Stone-coloured sofas invite cosy evenings in front of your favourite film, set on smart black walnut flooring.  

There’s an understated elegance to the sleeping quarters. The master bedroom is beautifully lit through a lunette window and leads to its immaculate en-suite bathroom – its floors and walls are wrapped in glossy marble, setting the stage for an inviting free-standing bath. The guest bedroom is a serene affair, with sliding pocket doors doubling the space into a dedicated dressing area or home gym. Choose between the walk-in shower or fitted bath in the family bathroom. From the fourth floor, ascend the sprawling spiral staircase to the roof terrace; fire up the barbecue and enjoy summertime drinks on this south-facing suntrap.

    A blue plaque sits on the exterior of this home, commemorating the 20th-century humorist P. G. Wodehouse – the mastermind behind the well-loved Jeeves and Wooster stories. Many years before its renovation by the iconic Alexander McQueen, this home belonged to the grandson of Queen Victoria, Alexander Mountbatten.
