47 Gloucester Square was built as a part of a terrace of substantial four-storey townhouses with attic and basements, constructed of stucco and in a Classical style. The building is now GII listed within the Bayswater Conservation Area.
The flat entrance, situated on the building’s second floor, opens onto an impressive and expansive staircase. Just below the ceiling, a cascading light feature creates a sense of warmth and dynamism, guiding guests up through the property and accentuating the structural beauty of the staircase itself. Arriving at the top level, a skylight above the staircase allows natural light to pour through the core of the property.
The second level features two generously-proportioned reception rooms. Two side portals have been opened in the partition between these spaces, adding a sense of fluidity and harmony, and allowing natural light to stream through when the sliding doors are opened. Floor-to-ceiling mirrors have also been added to the partition itself, lengthening and amplifying the space, without adding square footage. One of these reception rooms is currently arranged as a dining space, with an impressive 12-person marble dining table acting as a stunning centrepiece. An intricately designed chandelier hangs from a false ceiling above, adding a touch of classic elegance to the room. The second level also features a fully-equipped kitchen with a stone worktop and breakfast bar, as well as an additional bedroom.
On the upper level of the flat, the master and junior bedrooms have been fitted with en-suites, featuring sleek marble tiling and mirrors to enhance the space. Each bathroom also has a skylight, keeping the spaces fresh and bright. An elegant and spacious walk-in wardrobe has also been added to the master bedroom, in addition to several concealed oak-panelled wardrobes. The upper level also features a family bathroom, laundry room, and a tastefully refurbished hallway.
Throughout the flat, rooms have been fitted with stunning bespoke joinery, elegant boiserie and cascading light features to add unique touches of sophistication and create a consistent visual language throughout.
The property’s original chimneys have also been reopened and fitted with limestone fireplaces, adding a sense of prestige.
Finally, the fully-refurbished floors feature stunning clear oak, with dramatic dark oak inserts framing each individual space.
