A four-bedroom apartment destined for connoisseurs of contemporary style. A period blueprint transformed for modern family life.
An impressive, red-brick Victorian mansion block, Neville Court stands out among the tree-lined streets of St John’s Wood. Beatles fans take note. Its third-floor vantage point offers uninterrupted views of the band’s Abbey Road crossing and the namesake recording studio.
Enter through the first of two octagonal turrets – a nod to the building’s past. To one side Versailles-patterned, French oak parquet floors give way to herringbone in the light-filled living spaces. To the other, a corridor leads to the four bedrooms and a chef-standard kitchen. Twenty windows thread across the frame of the building, capitalising on the arc of the sun. Drink in bespoke Italian craftsmanship in every space. The focal points? Furnishings that double as artwork. Think Murano chandeliers, Knoll tables and Fil de Fir sculptural lighting.
Entertain friends in the three interconnected reception rooms as the late afternoon sun pours in through French doors. Pass the bread basket around the dining table or toast tipples in the lounge. The artwork here is sure to inspire – Marc Quinn and Rich Simmons paintings wow immediately. Let young adults take over the second reception room, housed within the second ornate turret. In warmer climes, move to the south-westerly facing balcony for digestifs during golden hour.
In the opposite wing, an eat-in kitchen sits behind Crittall-style doors. Sidestepping Pinterest trends, its industrial aesthetic is utterly streamlined and beautifully finished with micro-cement floor and stainless-steel Binova units. A burnt orange, exposed steel beam pops against the muted palette. Here, the Bora hob makes light work of mealtimes. In the utility, chores are kept out of sight.
As the little ones tire, four bedrooms await. Integrated storage in the bedroom and hallway leaves plenty of space to dance around to your favourite Beatles track. Four Devon & Devon, mosaic-marbled bathrooms promise maximum indulgence.
A ribbon of 20 windows offer wraparound views of the London skyline, channelling natural light from dawn to dusk.
Pared-back and neutral tones don’t dare distract from the salient artwork and statement furnishings. Sculptural lighting by Murano and Fil de Fir instantly draw eyes. The reception rooms shake up focal points between Marc Quinn and Rich Simmonds paintings. Edra sofas, Knoll tables, the list seems endless.
Octagonal turrets, period cornicing, intricate fireplace mantel, a stained-glass window and decorative brickwork keep the building’s heritage alive.
A balcony wraps around the southern side of the apartment, making the most of the village-like atmosphere in St John’s Wood.
Three reception rooms. Four bedrooms. A cutting-edge kitchen. At Neville Court, family life plays out effortlessly.
Towering over the tree-lined streets of St John’s Wood, Neville Court sits opposite the birthplace of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper.
Facing the Grade II-listed Abbey Road Studios, Neville Court overlooks one of London’s most legendary recording studios. With the instantly recognisable Abbey Road zebra crossing on your doorstep, it's hard to resist setting up for a memorable family photo here. After scrawling a message on the graffiti wall outside, head 10 minutes south and soak up the atmosphere at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. Regular fixtures will keep you at the edge of your seat. Stretch your legs after a nail-biting match at Regent’s Park or nearby Primrose Hill. On breezy summer days, pick up artisan nibbles from Panzer’s on the way. Explore the string of boutiques and eateries along St John’s Wood High Street on your way home.
