You'll love this swanky penthouse...

It may not be in Notting Hill, or the sort of place you’d host four weddings and a funeral. But this luxurious South Kensington penthouse has everything you’d expect from the former home of rom-com legend Hugh Grant. From mirrored dressing rooms to roof-top hot tubs, this property – which has just been brought to the market by Alexander Millet for £8,950,000 – offers you the chance to live like a movie star in the heart of London.

Located in Petersham House on Harrington Road, the apartment overlooks Chelsea, the Thames and Battersea Power Station. Just a few minutes walk away are the stylish shops and restaurants of South Kensington, as well as excellent transport links and a great selection of schools. Meanwhile, to the north of the property you’ll find the Natural History and the Science Museum, plus the open green spaces of Hyde Park.


Inside, there’s over 3,000 square feet of lavishly decorated space: think mirrored walls, vaulted ceilings, crushed velvet, and enough chandeliers to make Liberace blush. The apartment’s crowning glory is a sweeping central reception room, which incorporates living room, dining area, kitchen and office space, and would no doubt be a great place for a glamorous party.


Elsewhere in the penthouse are three bedrooms, including a plush master bedroom suite with floor to ceiling windows framing a panoramic view of the city, and an adjoining mirrored dressing room.


Meanwhile, outside there’s over 1,500 square feet of private terraces from which to soak up the glorious vistas. Recline on the sun deck or, better yet, sip champagne in the luxury hot tub while the sun sets on London. Beats re-watching Bridget Jones’ Diary – and that’s saying something.

Fancy living like Hugh Grant? The Penthouse at Petersham House is available through Alexander Millett for £8,950,000 – enquire here
