Eaton Square penthouse, Eaton Square, Belgravia, , SW1W9AA, London, England
3 Bedrooms | 3 bathroom/showerrooms
Penthouse duplex apartment, facing south from the best location on Eaton Square, with a new lease of 900 years to be granted. This is the origional Thomas Cubit designed Regency building on the square with high ceilings and beautiful period features throughout including an early 1800s marble fireplace. The building has a lift and access to the private gardens, across the road opposite.
The building is grade 11* listed and was the first part of Eaton Square constructed from 1827 by Thomas Cubitt with a south facing view over Eaton Square. It has unusually high ceilings on both of its floors for an upper apartment within Eaton Square. Eaton Square is London’s most prestigious address and in 2016 was nominated London’s most expensive place to live. The six adjoining, tree-planted, central gardens of Eaton Square are Grade II listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. A teenis court is provided for the residents.
The front of the building is distinguished from its neighbours by classic Corinthian Columns extending to a third-floor parapet. Many internal period features such as fire places, cornice, panelling and the communal stairwell banister rails are still intact. The apartment is presented in a reasonable decorative order having been extensively refurbished to a high standard in 2004, and has a spectacular drawing room, with timber floor, across the south facing side of the apartment, with views onto Eaton Square gardens. The drawing room has an origional (restored), ornate marble fireplace. A separate formal dining room also has a gas fired fire place and wood panelled walls. The main bedroom on the top floor runs right across the front of the building with views onto Eaton Square and has a gas fired fireplace. The wood panelled ensuite was designed by Christiansen and has an art deco skylight. The upstairs corridor is also flooded with light from a stairwell skylight, and a second bedroom enuite also has a skylight. Both of the other bedrooms on the top floor are ensuite.
Former notable residents include Christina Onassis.
