The first estates in one of London's most impressive landmark properties, Cornwall Terrace (above), are being offered for sale starting at $65 million via Christie's Great Estates. Sited within a peerless location overlooking Regent's Park - London's finest Royal Park, which contains the London Zoo - Cornwall Terrace is described as a "rare convergence of provenance, history, and grandeur." Part of the Crown Estate, the Grade I listed Regency terrace was designed in the early 19th Century by royal architect John Nash. Previously home to members of the nobility for nearly 150 years, and later occupied by commercial concerns, the incredible edifice has now been converted into eight ultra-luxurious mansions ranging in size from 8,000 to 14,000 sq. ft. with five to seven bedrooms apiece, the largest expected to fetch over $100 million.
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 discreetly implemented comprehensive security systems. Designed to appeal to ultra-rich buyers from the UAE, Russia and China, each of the eight estates is being offered completely furnished including unique works of art and bespoke furniture, each designed in a unique style by a famous decorator. Each property also comes with its own mews house in the rear, providing ideal staff accommodation. Residents will enjoy a range of recreational options including on-site spas and gymnasiums, Bentley-sized garages, and a personal sommelier service.
