In the heart of London’s prestigious Belgravia neighborhood, Chelsea Barracks has once again made headlines with the sale of a townhouse that fetched a staggering £60 million GBP (approximately $75.79 million USD). This transaction not only marks one of the most expensive sales in all of London this year but also sets a record as the priciest sale to date on the street, solidifying Chelsea Barracks’ reputation as a standout performer in prime central London.
The townhouse, spanning an impressive 14,704 square feet, is a modern marvel spread across six floors and boasts a landscaped rooftop terrace. Designed by PDP London, the architectural principles of the Georgian Period were sensitively adapted for the 21st century, preserving the traditional Georgian townhouse’s integrity while infusing contemporary elements. Albion Nord, the London-based design studio, oversaw the interiors, creating a sophisticated space that harmoniously blends heritage with modern luxury.
The Whistler Square townhouse comes complete with an unparalleled package of private in-home amenities, redefining luxury living. From a state-of-the-art gym to a 39-foot-long private swimming pool, steam and sauna rooms, a treatment room, and a wine room, residents are treated to a lifestyle of opulence. Additionally, a screening room, formal reception and dining rooms, a spacious home office, private parking, and a full catering kitchen connected via separate elevators add to the property’s allure.
Nestled in the private garden is the Mews House, a freestanding residential annex arranged over two floors. Boasting a reception, entrance lobby, living room, bedroom, kitchen area, and bathroom, the Mews House provides a secluded retreat accessible from the garden, its own back entrance, or the townhouse’s spa underground.
Rupert des Forges, Head of Prime Central London Developments at Knight Frank, said: “Chelsea Barracks continues to be one of prime central London’s standout performers, attracting interest from across the globe. The substantial sale demonstrates that despite ongoing economic uncertainty London remains top of the list for the world’s global buyers. The sale is another record-breaking transaction for Knight Frank and Qatari Diar, the price paid is testament to the quality, execution and lifestyle delivered at Chelsea Barracks. Despite continued market headwinds we are seeing ultra-high net worth individuals focus in on the very best assets available in the capital.”
Richard Oakes, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Qatari Diar, expresses delight in the consistent success of Chelsea Barracks. The record-breaking transaction attests to the development’s commitment to excellent design and world-class amenities in a prime London location. With future projects like 9 Mulberry Square and 48 finished residences on the horizon, Qatari Diar looks set to continue its success in the super-prime market.
