Sussex in Soho – The £6m London house with a nod to country life

Sussex in Soho – The £6m London house with a nod to country life
Posted by James Hood

We’re honoured to have been asked to sell the Soho home of a very well know financier. Anyone who would like information will need to pass a qualifying process – but what we can say is that if you have a cool £6 million budget, this is a property you must see.

Tucked away on a fairly quiet street and in a discreet location, this Georgian house is just steps away from the action on Carnaby and Regent Street. Purchased by the current owner three years ago, the home needed refurbishment. A 60s warehouse attached to the back of the home was turned into a large, country-style, eat-in kitchen with 18ft high ceilings and sky lights. There is also a glass floored loft, filtering the light down into the kitchen area (currently used as the owner’s piano room). This massive room that was meant to be destroyed has now become the soul of the house connected to the building at three different levels.

In the basement are a couple of secret rooms including a wine cellar and a super cosy media room/bedroom with a spacious wood decked open plan bathroom including a sauna that makes it also useful as a guest suite.

The ground floor reception room to the front is currently used as a dining room and has a window that opens onto the kitchen. There is a bathroom next to it, meaning any new owners could use the space as a bedroom or guest suite. In fact, each floor of this property have been designed to allow someone to live independently.

Going upstairs a hallway opens through a void to the back kitchen and has been turned into a 1900’s style laundry. Following the staircase, the first floor holds the current reception room with high ceilings and big windows characteristic of the Georgian era. The 200+ year old wooden floors have been restored (like many of the original features) and give this home a feel of the countryside.

The layout is repeated on the second floor, with a fully functioning steam room above the laundry room below. The floor is entirely occupied by an impressive master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room.

At the top of the building is another bedroom. This room includes the exposed original beams and vaulted ceiling. There’s also another magnificent open-plan decked bathroom with a period standalone bath.

We embraced a feel for being in the country when we stepped into this house. It is a property that transports you far from the hectic West End in seconds – while still benefiting from all that London has to offer practically on your doorstep.
