Eight Cornwall Terrace Mansions Offered for $625 Million in London
Last month we broke the news that the first estates in one of London's most impressive landmark properties, Cornwall Terrace (above), were being offered for sale starting at $65 million via Christie's Great Estates. Now the London Daily Mail has followed up with a report that the total value of the eight double-fronted mansions contained in the newly-renovated Terrace is about $625 million, making it the world's most expensive row of houses. The largest of the residences at 14,000-sq.-ft. is expected to fetch around $100 million alone; however some enterprising Russian oligarch could step in and snap up the whole lot and transform it into the ultimate private palace. Sited within a peerless location overlooking Regent's Park, Cornwall Terrace is described as a "rare convergence of provenance, history, and grandeur."
The Grade I listed Regency terrace was designed in the early 19th Century by royal architect John Nash and was home to members of the nobility for nearly 150 years. Incredible architectural details such as paneling, moldings, marble floors and fireplaces are enhanced by state-of-the-art amenities such as a silent hydraulic lift, multiroom iPad-controllable audio-visual and lighting systems, and comprehensive security systems. Each of the eight estates is being offered completely furnished including unique works of art and bespoke furniture, each designed by a famous decorator. Each property also comes with its own staff accommodation, and residents will enjoy a range of recreational options including on-site spas and gymnasiums, Bentley-sized garages, and a personal sommelier service.
