Buyer lands £16.5m St John’s Wood villa

Hamilton Terrace mansion - described as one of St John's Wood's most important properties - took five years to redevelop

A north London mansion that took five whole years to refurbish has been sold on a guide of £16.5m.

The epic programme tuned up the house on Hamilton Terrace into an ultra-modern humdinger with 9,500 square feet of space over five floors, including eight bedrooms, a super-successful leisure complex, and a garden designed by Chelsea gold medal winner, Christopher Bradley-Hole.

Described as “one of St John’s Wood’s most important properties” and a “modern masterpiece”, the trophy proposition hit the market with sole agent Henry & James before Christmas and has just been sold – to an Aston Chase buyer, we’re told – in one of the biggest house deals of 2017 so far (read about another one here).

James Bailey, Chief Executive of Henry & James: “We were delighted to be appointed the sole agent of Hamilton Terrace. We are pleased to confirm that we have now exchanged contracts after the property was placed on the market three months ago.  This only goes to show that confidence is returning to the top end of the market.”
