Full description



Savills is proud to bring to the market this handsome Palladian villa that was designed in the neo-classical style by the architect Lionel Stirgess to the owner's exacting specification in 1965. The design and layout of the house is an almost facsimile of a traditional Italianate villa having elegant rooms, all of which are arranged off a central atrium. The east-west orientation of the house affords an unusually high degree of natural light to flow into the rooms at all levels which provides an ideal environment for both formal entertaining and modern family living.
The impressive and gracious reception hall at ground floor level provides a large and welcoming space in which to receive visitors. The formal reception rooms directly leading off it inter-connect to produce an unusually large area which is ideal for formal entertaining.
The upper floors contain a series of adaptable bedroom suites which could provide seven to eight in total, and again are arranged around the central atrium.
This magnificent house has been substantially extended, rebuilt, refurbished and interior designed to an extraordinarily high level of specification. The quality of fittings, fixtures and appliances are of the highest standard and include CCTV, airconditioning, underfloor heating and surround sound. Rarely does a house of this caliber come to the market in St. John's Wood or central London.


3 reception rooms, entrance hall, study, master bedroom with his & hers dressing rooms & bathrooms, 6 bedroom suites, eat in kitchen, staff flat, gym, heated swimming pool, pool house, driveway
