From red-brick Victorian gems to glamorous Regency-era townhouses, period properties possess a certain je ne sais quoi that is missing from the – dare we say it – soulless superstructures of the modern era
You can keep your clean lines, fluid shapes, and metallic textures. When it comes to property, there’s nothing like some old-world charm. We want sash windows and stained glass. Give us ceiling roses, corbels, and cornicing galore. More fireplaces than you can count? Yes please. If you too are a lover of all things ornate, then you’re in the right place: this is our edit of the latest, and most sumptuous, period properties for sale in London right now.
The following is an excerpt from the above Luxury London article which features two offerings from our portfolio of stunning properties.
Regent’s Crescent, W1B
Regent’s Crescent is a slice of London history, forming part of architect John Nash’s grand vision of a Roman-inspired West End approach to Regent’s Park. After a five-year renovation, Regent’s Crescent has emerged as a 120-metre curve of glorious stucco with all the classical beauty of Nash’s design. This is an rare opportunity for buyers to acquire a lateral apartment within this landmark Grade I-listed development – the property features a 75sqm private terrace which runs the entire width of the apartment, as well as a double-height entrance lobby, 24/7 concierge, meeting rooms, a 20m swimming pool, gymnasium, treatment rooms and a private cinema.
Springfield Road, NW8
This Georgian-style house is located in the up-and-coming St John’s Wood. After 2.5 years of painstaking renovation, which included excavating a new lower ground floor to provide additional leisure, recreational and bedroom accommodation, this 522.9sqm detached residence is the perfect family home. The property comprises a principal bedroom with an ensuite dressing room, bathroom and shower room, plus five further bedrooms, reception and living areas, a kitchen/breakfast/dining room and a study. Luxurious extras include a cinema room, split-level gymnasium and two guest cloakrooms.
