Ormonde House, Eaton Gate, Belgravia, a grand six storey 6,225 sq. ft. (578.3 sq. m) townhouse located on Eaton Gate, between Sloane Square and Eaton Square, is offered for sale through sole agent Pastor Real Estate.
The magnificent Grade II listed residence is located at one of Belgravia’s most prestigious addresses. In need of modernisation but complete with many original features, the property is a blank canvass providing the opportunity to secure a Belgravia residence at an advantageous price and to create a luxury family residence in this sought after location. The property is offered with planning consent.
Relatively untouched, residents will appreciate the high ceilings and ornate features throughout Ormonde House. From the moment you walk through the front door, you are met with a spacious marble-floored reception hall, finished with ornate plaster work and decorative fireplace. The grand staircase with turned balusters whisks you back to a bygone era and invites you to explore what the house has to offer. Located next to the staircase is the original four person wood and mirror panelled lift, servicing all floors.
On the ground floor, there is a formal dining room to the front of the property, where the fine original plaster work continues alongside wooden strip flooring with a feature parquet border. To the rear there is a wood panelled library complete with coffered ceiling.
To the lower ground floor, there is an original secure silver vault located under the stairs, large kitchen and various staff quarters. Once remodelled, this area will provide ample room for a large showcase kitchen with wine room and flexible living space.
Rising to the first floor there is a large formal reception room. Benefiting from the width of the property, the large bay window allows for natural light to flood the room emphasising all the original features.
To the upper floors there are seven bedrooms, most with en-suite bathrooms. In the planning permission granted, each of these floors will be redesigned to create four spacious bedrooms all en-suite with a dressing room to the master bedroom, together with a family room and study.
David Lee, Head of Sales at Pastor Real Estate commented: “We are delighted to be acting as the sole agent for Ormonde House, 8 Eaton Gate. It is a beautiful home adorned with original features, it requires a thorough renovation but it also offers real value for money and the opportunity to tailor a home to one’s requirements.”
“It is currently on the market for £10.8million (£1,734 per sq. ft.), and requires between £1.7 – £2 million worth of work. Subject to the extent and quality of refurbishment, a house like this could achieve a value in the range of £14.5-£16 million (averaging out at £2,449 per sq. ft.), which still offers buyers value for money per square foot.”
