New build over four levels along a private gated street in the heart of London’s Belgravia
List of the day
Location: Belgravia, London
Price: £17.5 million ($22.78 million)
This unusual new build on a private gated street just off Hyde Park features four floors arranged around a central atrium with a 35ft ceiling, glass roof and rooftop terrace.
“The house is brand new,” said listing agent Edward Thomson, of Strutt & Parker/Luxury Portfolio International. “It has never been inhabited.”
“It’s a very unique house – it’s almost 60 feet wide,” he said. “In London, nirvana is certainly a house that is lower and wider than normal Victorian architecture, which is tall and narrow.”
During the construction of the Grosvenor Crescent Mews house, the builders were able to excavate a new lower ground floor, which houses a dining room, cinema/lounge, wine cellar and gym with shower.

From the front door you enter a large hall, with the garage on the left. A gallery to the right overlooks the dining room on the lower level. The eat-in kitchen is also on this level.
The second floor houses a large reception room, with a bedroom and an office on the other side of the landing. All bedrooms have walk-in closets as well as full bathrooms, Mr. Thomson said. The second floor bedroom also has a terrace.
The third floor houses two more bedrooms, including the master suite. Both have access to the roof terrace.
At the top of the house, the central elevator opens to a wall of glass and the roof terrace. “It faces south, so you have sun all day,” Mr Thomson said. “It’s awfully quiet up there.”
The 4,779 square foot home features four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and two partial bathrooms.
Facilities include a large glass elevator that serves all levels, a mute server from the kitchen to the entertainment areas below, a cinema room with a bar, a wine cellar, a gym, a garage and a off-street parking at the front of the house, a terrace on one of the bedrooms and a roof terrace.
“You’re right next to Hyde Park Corner,” Mr Thomson said. “It’s an incredibly central location. Hyde Park is just 100 meters away.
“The house is literally nestled behind two of London’s most famous hotels, the Berkeley and the Lanesborough,” he said.
Other nearby attractions include Grosvenor Square Gardens, Belgrave Square, the Grenadier Pub and the shops and restaurants of Knightsbridge.
