Rightmove can be a great place to find houses of your dreams and create aspirations, and with many houses available it can be hard to know what to work towards. So to give both those who like to browse and dream and those looking for a new house a helping hand, I have compiled a list of the top 5 luxurious homes in London on Rightmove:
Upper Grosvenor Street – £54,500,000
This stunning 12-bedroom house is what dreams are made of. It is one of Mayfair’s original Mansions and it is a Grade II listed townhouse which was constructed in 1732. However, it was extensively refurbished in 1908 by Ralph Knott, who particularly liked to adopt an Edwardian baroque style in his work. The house has since been restored to its original appearance but has incorporated many modern features. There is an abundance of space throughout and you will find an ‘L-shaped’ drawing room on the first floor and this also leads onto a large terrace and a dining room on the ground floor. The dining room can seat 20 guests and many parts of the house accommodate a large family or visitors, so if you like to entertain you will be able to do that comfortably in this house. Additionally, the master bedroom occupies the entire second floor and includes a private and secluded roof terrace. There are also 4 other principle bedroom suites in the main house. Further bedrooms are found in ‘Mews House’ which can be found at the rear in Culross Street and it has its own drawing room/kitchen, gym and garaged parking with spaces for 2 cars. Moreover, the house has one of Mayfair’s largest private swimming pools and also features a gym/fitness studio, separate spa pool, sauna, and a private screening room. Upper Grosvenor Street sits between Grosvenor Square and Park Lane and is an exclusive part of central London. This fantastic location offers residents a close proximity to Hyde Park, world class shopping malls and 5* restaurants. For more information click here.
