A Kensington residence complete with the most impressive range of security features comes to the market for £13.75 million
Estate agents Knight Frank and John Taylor would do well to seek out gangsters and Russian tycoons in the marketing of a 6,453 square foot house in South End, Kensington, W8 as it boasts all manner of security features.
The eight storey residence – four floors of which are underground – includes 2 panic rooms with 4” bullet proof steel doors, a 4” bullet proof front door, two separate security systems, bullet proof front windows and shatter proof windows throughout. The double stacking garage features a 4” bullet proof door also and in addition there is a vault with an 8” steel door, two category 3 steel safes, two steel ammunition safes and a steel gun safe for 24 guns.
With 5 bedrooms, 5 reception rooms and 6 bathrooms, the house also features an indoor pool that turns – at the touch of a button – into an integrated dancefloor for upto 60 dancers, a gym, sauna and steam room. Naturally, there’s a lift serving seven floors, category 6 cabling, a home cinema room with a 3D projector, a 1,600 bottle wine room with storage for 3,100 cigars and a bar on the lower third level.
Basically, here, indeed, is a home perfectly equipped for someone with a spare £13.75 million who needs to be holed up for a number of days at a time. Perhaps a call should be put out to Guy Ritchie: This place would make just the perfect location for a Lock Stock sequel.
