House of multicoloured marble hits market at £9m
A lavish London house filled with marble is now taking offers over £9m.
Based on the north side of Clapham Common, the property is tucked away amidst streets of Victorian and Georgian architecture. Its luxury is well hidden behind a nondescript facade of sandy-coloured brickwork, supplying ultimate privacy through anonymity.
Rebecca Higgins of Knight Frank, the estate agency managing the sale, commented:
“Externally it fits in perfectly. When it comes to design it’s definitely one of a kind for this area. You wouldn’t know from the outside what an amazing house is behind the door.”
Spanning six floors the opulent property is a renovation project of Groves Natcheva, an architectural firm with a reputation for creating impressive contemporary living spaces in century-old properties around the capital. Transformed, the home features marble of green, blue and pink along with rich mahogany panelling. Large-scale windows are fitted on the mansion’s garden facing facade, allowing the gardens and water features to penetrate the rooms.
The property has been thoroughly modernised and benefits from the latest smart-home technology has to offer, including a security camera system and integrated speakers. Underfloor heating, as well as cooling, is fitted to deliver year-round comfort to residents.
With an entire floor dedicated to the master bedroom, wine cellar and a private pool the mansion could be considered the pinnacle of London luxury.
Time and the remodelling has increased the value of the house significantly; according to records for the property, it was last sold in 2007 for a comparatively modest £2.8m.
