A title and a Kennedy

Former London home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ sister Lee Radziwill for sale for £9.45 million

 

Thrice married American socialite, public relations executive and interior decorator Lee Radziwill has thus far worked her way through eleven titles and styles during her eighty-two year life. She’s variously been a Miss, a Mrs, a Princess and a Dowager Princess and just as was the case for her sister, the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, her life has been a whirlwind of drama, glamour and heartache. Her former London home is currently for sale for £9.45 million ($14.31 million, €12.95 million).

The drawing room is decorated in a far more tame fashion today

 

The owner of residences in London, New York and Paris at various points, Radziwill moved to a double fronted townhouse in Buckingham Place, Westminster with her second husband Prince Stanisław Albrecht Radziwiłł (1914 – 1976) in 1959. Its interior was “fashioned” by the acclaimed Italian decorator and set designer Lorenzo ‘Renzo’ Mongiardino (1916 – 1998) and in 1966, Radziwill was photographed by Sir Cecil Beaton CBE (1904 – 1980) in the newly redecorated drawing room.

 

In 2013, Mongiardino’s scheme for the room was described by Architectural Digest as having an “Ottoman-meets-Moghul atmosphere both unmistakably hip – it was the Age of Aquarius, after all—and hypnotically sensuous” but now, after a full-scale renovation by the current owners in 2012, the decoration of the 5,360 square foot, five-storey house is far more neutral.

 

Featuring 7 bedrooms – including a master suite of a bedroom, two dressing rooms and two bathrooms that occupies the entire first floor – the house also includes three reception rooms, a roof terrace and an open plan dining kitchen that opens onto a garden designed by Lady Lennox-Boyd.

    1. Penny – you are right, the rooms were so much more human friendly before this refrigerator / haemophiliac look became the essential look

      I feel untidy and uncomfortable in this type of milieu

      Rod – you are wrong……..I promise

    2. Peer group pressure……

      It is said that a bare looking glass above a bare chimney piece is questionable at best

      I am of a different generation so admire different things, like the eighteenth century furniture, the parquetry tricoteuse, the lovely painting, the carpet, the charming ornaments, fresh flowers and the comfortable soft furniture

      Hopefully that destroyer of the carpet manufacturing towns – Llewellyn Bowen won’t win the lottery

    3. Rod
      What on earth would someone from a suburb of Melbourne know about such things?
      I suppose you live vicariously eading about interesting people in the Steeples Times.

    4. More generic white boxes. And imagine the “gracious living” of hauling one’s luggage up and down that staircase. The his and her dressing rooms and baths are properly civilized; but the master bedroom is the size of what one would find in a tiny rental flat.

    5. I love the chairs with modestly long dresses on them. Didn’t the Victorians cover chair legs as being sexually suggestive. It seems like full circle….
