Queensberry Place, a historic two-bedroom apartment in the heart of South Kensington, seamlessly blends timeless elegance with modern comfort, featuring high ceilings, three charming balconies and a vibrant color palette.
In the heart of South Kensington stands Queensberry Place, a testament to late 19th-century architectural splendor. The terrace, adorned with a striking stuccoed façade and regal portico entrances flanked by Doric columns, captivates with its timeless grandeur. Ascend to the piano nobile, and you’ll find a two-bedroom apartment spanning two floors and 1,315 sq ft, boasting living spaces with lofty ceilings and not one but three charming balconies.
Queensberry Place, the eastern frontier of the Queen’s Gate conservation area, surprises with its serene ambiance amidst a central location. Crafted between 1867-1868 by William Douglas, this four-story architectural marvel boasts individually designed Victorian terraces. The tripartite windows on the top floor open onto narrow balconies adorned with bottle balustrades, while Doric entrance porticos add a touch of sophistication. Step into the apartment, where a dining room painted in bold blue welcomes you, complemented by bespoke bookshelves. Beyond double doors lies a drawing room bathed in John Soane yellow, featuring original cornicing and an ornate marble fireplace. Tall windows and French doors open onto a balcony, inviting natural light and a breath of fresh air.
The kitchen, located at the rear, offers a visual feast with black cabinetry against Black Zimbabwe stone worktops and bright red walls. Ascend to the primary bedroom with its en suite bathroom, where you’re greeted by two balconies—a larger terrace accessed from the bathroom and a charming balcony through French doors. The second bedroom, nestled below, conceals an en suite shower room behind a wallpapered door.
