Property Pick: Arlington Residential, St John's Wood

For Sale: Abercorn Place, NW8

If it’s modern grandeur you’re after, look no further. This six-bed neoclassical villa offers oodles of elegant living and entertaining space and it’s all been beautifully refurbished, mixing old and new with aplomb. The house, set over four floors (and believed to be one of the earliest built in St. John’s Wood), boasts a grand drawing room, feature fireplaces, a library and even a cinema room – they wouldn’t have had one of those in 1815. A commodious family residence in which to spread out in style.
