A Right Royal Residence

If anything should be ‘fit for royalty’, it’s your house; forget humble abode, when it comes to home, nothing less than a Royal Warrant should suffice. Of course, we’re being flippant, but with this gem of a property, you’ll get the next best thing.

Built in the early 1800s by Sir Ambrose Poynter, for almost 125 years this Gothic pile in St. Katharine’s Precinct served as a grand grace-and-favour residence for senior clerics and members of the Royal household, before being privately purchased in 1948. It’s now on the market for the first time in over 25 years.

Offering a massive 6,000 sq ft of living space, the five-bedroom Grade II* listed house has been lovingly renovated by Oakmayne Bespoke. Luxury finishes include Crema Marfil marble stone flooring, a Pedini designed kitchen with Gaggenau and Miele appliances, and a bespoke master dressing room featuring Macassar Ebony sliding doors and fully fitted wardrobes with faceted lead crystal handles. With the huge ground floor entertainment room, incorporating a bar, media room, gymnasium steam room and sauna, this is the sort of place we could hole up in and quite happily never leave (especially given the recent weather).

£15 million, long leasehold. Joint sole agents Beauchamp Estates (020 7722 9793), Knight Frank (020 7586 2777), Savills (020 3043 3600)
