A stunning penthouse once belonging to “Love Actually” and “Notting Hill” star Hugh Grant has gone on the market for a price exclusively revealed “on application.”
The three-bedroom, three-bath residence—which fully occupies the top floor of Petersham House in the heart of South Kensington—boasts 360-degree iconic views of the London Skyline and a total of 4,665 square feet, which includes 1,600 square feet of outdoor space.
With an elevator that goes right up into the apartment, the decadent pad features solid dark American walnut throughout, Calacatta marble in all of the bathrooms, and Calacatta gold marble in the kitchen. Creating a dazzling effect, double-height vaulted ceilings run through the middle of the apartment with seven custom-made crystal chandeliers running from the master suite, to the kitchen, and out to the kitchen terrace.
The interior finishes include endless bevelled mirrors in all rooms, silk satin bespoke curtains, dark wood slatted blinds, custom-built beds and silk fabric headboards. Also included are three sets of grand 3m high bevelled glass salon doors custom-made for the Penthouse and silk rug carpeting.
The accommodation includes three bedroom suites all with en-suite bathrooms. The Master suite—which includes a large walk in shower, separate bath, his and hers WCs, sinks, and bidet—opens up to a large terrace with a six-person jacuzzi, dining area, independent gym/running room, and spectacular views. There is also a separate master dressing room with fitted bevelled mirror fronted wardrobes and central island with bevelled glass fronted draws and top.
The kitchen—fitted with a custom made “Hamptons” style American kitchen with Sub Zero and Gaggenau appliances—has a raised eating area, access to the utility and comms room, and direct access to a private terrace with summer/winter veranda that has an outside kitchen, TV, surround sound, and touch control electronic blinds to enclose the space as an additional entertaining room.
