If the Facia Fits: 14-16 Fitzhardinge Street
Tired of seeing beloved historical architecture smashed to pieces by unsentimental property developers to make way for more glass boxes, designed to maximise the foot prints of central London real estate? High-end buyers in London are thus sure to be impressed when three of the most expansive and elegant properties in London – numbers 14, 15 and 16 Fitzhardinge Street – come onto the market this autumn. These Grade II listed single townhouses, dating from the 18th century and situated in the heart chic Marylebone are some of the most exciting properties currently under development in the capital.
Historically home to the nobility and high-profile residents such as Sir Winston Churchill, Fitzhardinge Street elegantly links Manchester and Portman Squares. Marylebone is enjoying a renaissance as one of London’s hottest destinations – where elegant, classic architecture is matched by charm, individuality and a prime central location.
Being sympathetically restored to their former glory as substantial single townhouses by Luxus Developments, the first, Number 16, is very close to completion. The grandeur and elegance of the original architecture has been brought into the 21st century with state-of-the-art technology and a new internal structure. Great care has been taken to maintain the stunning original features dating back to the Georgian era. The rusticated-stucco facade and wide sash-windows outside are matched by grandeur and opulence on the inside with magnificently high ceilings, ornate cornicing and original fireplaces. Each also offers complete control in the palm of your hand, with 17 iPads placed in each residence to adjust and control the essentials.
With a strong Italian influence prevalent throughout the design, the sumptuous interior been restored entirely using the finest quality materials including elegant Burl, Briar and walnut wood paneling, luxurious alabaster and onyx stones and premium Italian marble such as Lasa. The wall lights and chandeliers are made from the finest Italian Murano and the kitchen chandelier is fashioned from dazzling Swarovski crystals. The scale of number 16 Fitzhardinge Street is felt as soon as you enter the property, with a grand sweeping staircase emphasised by the crowning lantern positioned above it. The size of the interior is set off by a stylish outdoor space, extremely rare to find in so central a location.
