A spectacular property situated in one of the most desirable London districts, this 1720s Mayfair mews house on Adams Row is on the market with Harrods Estates (at a guide price of £11,950,000) – and is just a stone’s throw away from the chapel featured in Love Actually.
Despite its central London location, the four-bedroom property’s mews position provides a secluded, sequestered setting, just a short walk from The Connaught, Grosvenor Square and Hyde Park. Built in the early 18th century, the mews would have once provided stables and coach houses for the coveted mansions in Grosvenor Square. Fast forward to today, and the Mayfair residence has been renovated to an exceptional standard, boasting sumptuous, contemporary interiors; think freestanding bathtubs, a fireplace at every corner, and neutrals enhanced with sensational pops of colour.
‘This home is one of the few remaining original mews houses on the street,’ says Harrods Estates’s Sales Manager Robert Cox. ‘Spanning three storeys, the original red brick façade and gabled roofs make it a striking heritage feature with lots of curb appeal. Once inside, it’s a plethora of ingenuity, comfort and style with every modern convenience you could imagine.’
Key highlights include a resplendent cinema room, the automated roof in the family room, the beautiful master bedroom suite and terrace, the lower ground gym and steam room, plus the private garage and car lift. Of course, the property’s Love Actually link is the icing on the cake.
‘Love Actually is one of our best-loved movies and in it, London acts as a wonderful film set as we follow the stories of some of our most iconic British actors,’ says Coz. ‘Everyone can remember the scene where Keira Knightley’s and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s characters are getting married in Grosvenor Chapel on South Audley Street – when they are surprised by their friends playing trumpets and trombones to the Beatles hit, ‘All You Need Is Love’. It’s magical to know this was filmed just around the corner from our Adams Row property.’
