One of London’s finest town houses in one of London’s finest squares – you can imagine Aylesford was proud to be selected for this complex multi-million pound project.
This beautifully located property is Grade II* listed and therefore demanded expert, meticulous and sensitive project design and planning.
The task, which had a timeline of several years, included the acquisition of the principal house and additional mews houses to the rear; appointing a carefully selected team; completing proposals; and securing planning and listed building consent.
Our scheme provided for a sensitive restoration of the listed house and mews properties giving 31,000 sq.ft. of the highest standard of accommodation, as well as a swimming pool, garaging and staff and guest quarters.
Originally built in the 1720s, the house has a rich history. It was a private residence which was later extended in the 1850s, and again in 1910 as the office of a private bank (to which a mighty safe in the basement, with steel walls a metre thick, bears witness).
Aylesford managed every aspect of this project. This even included consulting an adviser to the British Museum in specifying an environmental control system that is suitable for antique furniture and works of art.
