    is it just me or is that chandelier in the foyer/staircase way too big?

    I’m not sure what makes it “ambassadorial”, but I’ll just go with it. I like the house itself. The interior is the usual expected “cool Britannia” style, but this one is more successful than a lot of others. I’m not overly fond of the foyer; it’s rather bland compared to the rest of the house.

    It has some nice bits but I honestly see nothing all that special. If someone invited me over and whispered how much they paid I think I would throw my drink at them. Only thing that interests me is the F12 in the garage (if it was an FF I’d say torch the garage with the car in it).

    The house itself is nice and attractive on the outside and I’m sure it has a bit of history in it, but $69 million for a towering 10ft wide residence that shares walls with its neighbors?

    To put this into perspective, a 50,000 square foot mega-mansion in some of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the U.S. may not cost this much. If I had that much money and was willing to spend it on a house, I would want a palace on a large plot of land, not a residence that looks like a brick walk-up in a crowded, treeless area.

    Whilst I agree with you Joseph, this is London…it’s similar to New York in that many super rich want to live there and many just want a place to stay a few weeks/months of the year and treat it as somewhere comfortable and safe to put some of their money (like gold or something) so they’re not as concerned with value for money and having a palace on big land, they would have that as well anyway (possibly even a proper one in europe somewhere).

    So bizarrely I think to understand this house you have to understand it as a second residence or at least not a full time residence. Mayfair is like….prime central London. It’s having a big resurgence atm. And Charles st is one of the best in it, suburban and quiet but around the corner from everything. You can walk to the business zone and to all the great London spots.

    That said the house itself could be much nicer for any money. Totally agree…it’s very boxed in and no light like you would get in south kensington/knightsbridge/chelsea. But it’s very luxe and high end in it’s execution, just can’t escape it’s challenging bones.
