Matthew Steeples selects five of the best ground and first floor maisonettes currently for sale in Central London
Ground and basement maisonettes are ten-a-penny in London but ground and first floor apartments of this type are much rarer beasts. Plainly more sought after due to the fact they are lighter and have higher ceilings than their partially subterranean siblings, buyers will find themselves paying a premium for such apartments. Here we choose five of the best currently on offer:
Cresswell Gardens, South Kensington, SW5 — £3.4 million
For sale through “garden square specialists” Kaye & Carey and backing directly onto private communal gardens, this 1,311 square foot apartment has three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is described as being “a very good alternative to a typical Chelsea cottage at the same price”.
Hill Street, Mayfair, W1 — £16.95 million
Ideal for a bachelor who likes to entertain and having such features as a cigar room that links a sitting room and dining room, this share of freehold apartment benefits from a 24-hour concierge and off-street parking. It also has an impressive first floor drawing room, three bedrooms and three bathrooms and is for sale through Beauchamp Estates.
Lennox Gardens, Knightsbridge, SW1X — £15.95 million
Almost like a low-built house in terms of the space on offer, the Knightsbridge office of Savills offers this 5,153 square foot apartment in one of London’s most sought after garden squares. It is cited as being “ideal for entertaining on a grand scale” and has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, two terraces and a sauna.
Chesham Street, Belgravia, SW1 — £6.95 million
Reduced in price from £7.75 million and periodically on and off the market for a number of years, this five bedroom, 3,117 square foot apartment has a single garage and a private garden. Selling agents Henry & James describe it as being an “ideal family property”.
Redcliffe Road, Chelsea, SW10 — £2.15 million
Described as being “wrapped around a central patio garden” and on the market through Savills, this three bedroom, two bathroom flat is decorated in a contemporary style. It has two reception rooms and is located just north of the Fulham Road and just south of The Boltons.
