This Grade II listed Regency end of terrace is a very narrow but six story home for two art dealers and their three children. The Regency character had suffered after a mansard roof was added in 1939 and a lot of the original features had been lost, probably during a refurbishment in the 1980-ties. But the building retained its integrity and charm and offers a decent sized south facing patio garden and magnificent views over the roofs of Belgravia in earshot of St Peter's Church on Eaton Square.

We obtained listed building consent & building approval for some structural changes to the outside and the inside. When works started it showed that the building suffered from serious water damage and the entire south facing bays had dislodged from the rear elevation.

The works comprised of a total re-fit with substantial structural improvements throughout the building. The original character was brought back into the house with most of modern conveniences incorporated. The interior is very carefully and tastefully decorated which is integral to our design process. We collaborated closely with the clients and their antique dealer Edward Hurst on all aspects interior design which included detailing, colour schemes and finishes.

The works were started in September 2018 and were completed almost exactly one year later
