Buyer picks up £11m peach on Pelham Crescent in super-prime deal flurry

Wave of impressive sales reported across PCL, including prize specimens on two of Knightsbridge’s choicest crescents

A Grade II listed house on Pelham Crescent, one of Knightsbridge’s top addresses, has been snapped up in another strong PCL deal.

Perfectly positioned on the favoured west crescent, the 3,500 square foot six-bed mid-terrace came with a 65-foot, west-facing landscaped garden, which is alot of green space for super-prime SW7.

The interiors of these places are elegance defined, with cracking formal reception rooms on the first floor offering long leafy views across communal gardens to the front and the private ones to the rear.

The asking was a solid £10.95m (£3,128 psf) and word is that it went through at not far off, demonstrating once again that there’s always a market for top-quality stock if you get the pricing right.

Originally designed by master-architect George Basevi (of Belgrave Square fame) in 1825, the crescent is super-popular with HNW families thanks to the nearby options of Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle, Knightsbridge School, Sussex House and Hill House.

Recent sales in a similar ballpark have included a red-brick mansion on Acacia Road in St John’s Wood and a super-rare Grade I listed John Nash stunner on Park Square East in Regent’s Park; we hear an unmod end-of-terrace house on Egerton Crescent has also just been snapped up after listing at £12.75m…
