Grade ll* listed house refurbishment

A prestigious Grade II* white stucco 6-storey townhouse in South Kensington, found off market by our search team for our international client, her young daughter and extended family.  Having experienced arduous journeys on previous projects, the client had a strict vision that the full works had to be completed in 6 months – a challenge our team relished!  

 Originally the works were intended to be purely decorative, but our client’s ideas evolved and the project morphed into a reconfiguration of the house to suit their lifestyle and large collection of artwork.  We successfully obtained a complex planning permission for the refurbishment works before the sale of the property was even completed, including discreetly disguised air conditioning units within beautiful bespoke pieces of joinery.

 We managed the period of construction, working with our Design team to complete the alteration, extensive cosmetic redecorations and the addition of a new glass roofed conservatory, which brought a new lease of life to the volume and feel of the house.
