Millionaire entertainer’s former home enters market for £18.5 million
A townhouse in central London that once belonged to “Lord of the Dance” Michael Flatley has gone on sale priced at £18.5 million.
The Georgian era home in Knightsbridge has eight storeys and was recently extended and refurbished using art deco style by acclaimed design studio 1508 London. From silk wallpaper to its own gym and cinema-room the lavish property boasts a host of opulent features.
Flatley, who holds a Guinness World record for tap dancing and is credited for reinventing Irish folk dancing, lived at the six-bedroom property between 2005 and 2015. Born to Irish parents in the US, Flatley’s shows grossed over £800 million and his personal worth is said to be close to £233 million.
The London townhouse has Grade II listed status and includes many innovative elements such as a large five-person elevator, air conditioning and sumptuous underfloor heating throughout for optimal comfort all year round.
Designed for luxury living, the master bedroom on the property’s fourth floor presents impressive views of the select neighbourhood from a roof terrace connected to its en suite. Staff quarters are situated on the lower ground floor along with the main kitchen fitted with Gaggenau appliances built in and multiple wine stores.
No expense has been spared on the recent renovation with the seven bathrooms decorated in marble and detailed with gold taps. The interior colour scheme is subtle off-white with a selection of rich cremes while bespoke chandeliers offer lighting to original artwork in the surrealist style.
