St Saviours is a church that was converted into an opulent mansion.It was originally designed by Belgrave Square architect George Basevi in 1838. The Diocese of London sold most of St Saviours a while back for about £1 million. After that, only a smal section of the church was still used for worship. The rest was bought by developers who turned it into a 4-story home that was owned for six years by Les Misérables and Miss Saigon writer Alain Boublil. He sold it for £13.5 million in 2009 to a Thai businessman who commissioned a second makeover costing an estimated £10 million and lasting almost three years.
It features approximately 11,500 square feet of living space with 7 bedrooms, bronze and glass elevator, spiral stone staircase, open concept living/dining area with 42 foot vaulted ceiling, gym, home theater, juice bar, glass enclosed spa with sauna and steam room and a 30 foot indoor pool with hot tub.
The house isn’t officially on the market, but sources say it could easily fetch £50,000,000.
