Is this London’s most expensive renovation?

| |

Campden HillWith 60 rooms, including 12 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 6 guest rooms, and a price tag of £75million, you’d expect something somewhat spectacular… But Number One Campden Hill in Kensington, London is on the market with the view that the new occupant will spend at least £10million on a complete overhaul of the property.

The former Uruguayan Ambassador’s home has been empty for ten years and requires a drastic renovation to restore it back to its past glory. Built in 1915, the grade II listed detached house has full planning permission to extend the grounds to 30,000ft2, making it one of the largest private homes in London.

The property photos seen on Rightmove show computer generated images to help potential buyers imagine just how magnificent the vast property could be. With a professional development team already in place along with predicted budgets and time frames, such a large renovation project needn’t be a remodelling disaster. The potential plans include a 25m swimming pool, squash court, cinema, nightclub and a spa complete with a sauna and steam room along with a separate staff cottage with 3 bedrooms. Once the renovations have been completed, Number One Campden Hill, which is  set in one acre of private garden (unheard of in London), is sure to be a stunning one-of-a-kind property in the capital.

If you like the idea of living in Kensington but can't quite afford the £75million (not forgetting the extra £10million!) check out some of these more affordable homes in the area:
