A spectacularly designed apartment in this prominent South Kensington building.

Built between 1877-1879 in a French Renaissance style, Cornwall House is one of two magnificent free standing buildings at the tranquil western end of Cornwall Gardens. Rarely brought to market this 1,347ft2 lateral apartment has recently been fully renovated to standards befitting the address. Entering into the property the sense of space is magnified by the barrel vaulted ceilings, and the use of bold colours draws the eye right, towards the informal dining area. With washed oak flooring in all hallway and living spaces the bespoke Neptune Kitchen is skilfully demarked with hand poured concrete tiling, the same tiles found in both en-suite bathrooms and guest WC which, like these, further benefits from underfloor heating. The sweeping reception room provides ample space for living, but also a secondary formal dining area in the bay window. Both bedrooms face onto the private gardens of Cornwall House, and both provide en-suites and ample storage. Of particular note is the back printed glass splashback in the master bathroom, depicting Cornwall House in a drawing found in the RBKC archives. Further space can be found in 3 demised vaults, offering an additional 128ft of storage or the possibility to create a useable space. With Sonos throughout and plumbing and rewiring undertaken as part of the schedule of works, this property has been fully restored to its former grandeur whilst subtly creating a first class modern home.
