private house, chester squareLocation:
The alterations and renovation to this six storey Grade II listed 1820s house in Belgravia have created a modern family home while preserving the character of the existing house. A number of later additions to the house have been removed, including the demolition of a projecting first floor extension to allow natural light into the lower floors.
A swimming pool has been inserted below the mews building and the lightwell enclosed with a new walk-on glass roof, accessible from the kitchen at ground floor level.
The original Portland stone staircase and balustrade have been restored and reclaimed timber and stone flooring laid throughout.
A new conservatory at roof terrace level features a frameless glass lantern. This compliments the contemporary landscaping treatment to the terrace and lightwell.Photography
