    It’s an insane price, but if this place is actually built and the interior even slightly resembles the renderings, then I will love it. Exterior is quaint and pretty unassuming. Interior though…wow. Very Candy & Candy. I love the muted color scheme used in the living room. Truly a stunning home, but I doubt it will ever be built.

    Speaking of Candy & Candy, they recently updated their website and added some stunning new properties, my favorite of which is this London townhouse. Beyond gorgeous…

      Ohhhkay, I’m not on the defensive THIS time, Dan……….

      I was just STUPID enough to go to Candy & Candy’s website and TORTURE THE LIVING HELL outta’ myself by looking at every one of their projects listed on the site. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY did I do that!?!? You’re exactly right about about the “beyond gorgeous”……I CANNOT IMAGINE what it would be like to have THEIR KIND OF SUCCESS AND MONEY. Their work reflects EVERY IOTA of their success….it literally BREATHES BIG money. Astoundingly beautiful, luxe and impossibly glamorous. I HATE THEM!

        I love how they effortlessly blend contemporary and traditional elements, which as we seen SO many times before is not at all easy. Hell, it seems to be nearly impossible to find a home that pulls off its intended style without coming off as tacky, cheap, unlivable, etc.

        Safe to say that if I was wealthy and had a property someplace OTHER than Palm Beach, I would be giving them a call 😉

        For about $350 million I’m sure you can have it!

        As Chance said, it recently sold for about $350 million. I’m sure if you waved $400 million in the new owners face they would flip it!

          wow…that’s um…impressive. How else can you describe a THREE HUNDRED FIFTY F***ING MILLION DOLLAR sale? Those two are endlessly quotable…they sure aren’t ones for understatement, are they?

    Great, I just found a new cool website. Thanks Daniel. Candy & Candy have fantastic designs. Now how hard can it be for some of the developers on this site trying to sell these 40 and 50 million dollar houses to fly these guys in and let them do it right? I think this house will be done right if it matches these renderings. I like the classic look and the sophisticated cutting edge, yet still comfortable interior. It seems to me that this is the state of the art in interior design at this time. Would love to know the acreage on this.

        Completely agree. Did you catch the video? So refreshing to see a yacht whose interior isn’t covered floor to ceiling with lacquered mahogany. And that elevator is one of the coolest I’ve ever seen, period!

    Two Rolls Royces rendered outside, it is clear what clientele they are targeting.
    That price is ridiculous, especially for a craphole like London. England has gone to hell, people are leaving in droves. Their immigration policies have ruined the country. I can’t imagine why anyone would pay a hundred million dollars or more to live there.

    Candy and Candy are the masters at getting idiots to pay 3 to 5 times what a property is worth. They use a little chrome, some dimly lit creative lighting, paint the wood black to give the illusion that their work is so groundbreaking, it is not.
    Their work is not any better than you see in a high end hotel anywhere to be honest.

      WOW……talk about the MOST EXTREME opposite of Dan’s opinion, Venom! Personally I cannot comprehend how on earth you think their work is crap and that London is a “craphole”…..have you lived there for any length of time in the past five or so years, or do you know, and are in close, regular contact with a friend who has?

      TOTALLY AGREE with you though about the price of the proposed mansion…….PSYCHOTICALLY INSANE beyond ALL hope of description. The ONLY way I’d pay THREE KINGS’ RANSOMS for ONE property like that would be if it was my OWN PRIVATE, GORGEOUS tropical island, with an equally gorgeous, finished, LARGE luxury home with every possible amenity, protection, luxury, staff person, back up power alternative, AND large watercraft.

      You could say that *every* interior designer is overpriced. Peter Marino, Juan Pablo Molyneux, Bunny Williams, etc. all probably command a pretty penny, but I’d rather overpay for splendor than pay market prices for mediocrity. That’s just me.

    Those are really good renderings…from the thumbnails they looked like photos, right down to the pair of Rollers in the driveway.

    I would concur with Daniel and others about how fabulous the interior looks, if it’s done this way (or rather, is done at all). The exterior leaves much to be desired, but many British homes do, in my opinion…and as usual, I can’t quite put my finger on why. The price is psychotic, which should go without saying. I won’t insert myself into the fray about whether or not London is a good place to currently live 😉 but this project will certainly be impressive, should it ever see the light of day.

    The floor plan is exceptionally odd…considering they’re essentially building a new home, the plans look positively antiquated. Which bedroom do you suppose serves as the “master”? And random cultural question: what is a scullery?

      There are two sets of floor plans. The link above is for the old house as it is now. If you go to the listing site and download the Brochure it has the new floor plans with a large master bedroon and his and her baths. The estate may total 30,000 sq ft but it looks like 12-15,000 sq ft of the estate is underground.

      Link for the the Brochure. (About 5M in size)

    As one who does not think that London is a craphole, if I had $117 million to spend, this place would be near the top of the list. My complaint with the place, and keeping in mind that these are only renderings, is that the interior looks very impersonal. I have the same complaint with most Candy & Candy designs; many times the finished product ends up looking like a high end hotel. For London-based designers I would prefer something by Bannenberg & Rowell, or Todhunter-Earle.

    Honestly, I’d probably rather just tear the old house down and start from scratch – assuming I could get the planing approval, which, in London, is hardly a sure bet. I don’t think the proposed renovations/additions make sense. The new “entrance pavilion” moves the entrance from the front of the property to the rear garden, taking up valuable green space with a new driveway. It completely ruins the flow of the plan; clearly the house was designed to be entered from the other side, and the new plan renders all of those spaces useless and awkward. The original mansion basically becomes completely subordinate to the new (admittedly cool) subterranean addition, which isn’t even located beneath the house, but takes a long, circuitious route under the driveway and gardens. I guess that would be fine, as long as you plan to spend most of your time at your own nightclub underground…..

    Lovely house, land is overpriced though…even for London. If you look at the floor plans of this house, the actual ground floor and first floor aren’t all that big, most of this house is in the basement.

    My concern with this house is that it is too close to the development on Campden Hill which is several storeys high. Have a look for yourselves:
