Lined with handsome neo-classical stucco-fronted properties, Chester Terrace was designed by one of the leading 19th century architects, Decimus Burton, who was also responsible for designing Kew Gardens’ famous Palm House and parts of Buckingham Palace.
Set within the terrace is this palatial Grade I-listed home, which has one of the most sought-after settings in all of London and a rich history dating back to the inauguration of the road in 1825.
Overlooking Regent’s Park, there are few better views than those afforded from four of this property’s five storeys, as well as a stunning roof terrace, where plant life around the edge affords privacy when entertaining guests.
When it comes to family living space, there are no less than four reception rooms, including an elegant dining room, a cinema room and a double reception room on the first floor, where there are tall sash windows, dark parquet floors and a large carved fireplace that forms a striking focal point for the room.
While this home retains much of its period grandeur following a high-quality renovation, there are lots of contemporary mod cons that strike the perfect balance between practical and beautiful.
These include Gaggenau appliances in the chic bespoke kitchen that has grey units and marble worktops, as well as a lift running through all the storeys and three hotel-style bathrooms – one of which is an en suite adjoining the second bedroom.
In addition to this, there’s a classically designed en suite with his and hers sinks in the master bedoom and a dressing room, while on the lower ground floor there are staff quarters.
Although there is no garden, the roof terrace, park-facing balcony – which overlooks Chester Terrace’s grand Corinthian arch entranceway – and landscaped residents’ gardens at the front of the property more than make up for this and there’s also an integral garage and storage vaults.
