"As you enter Queens Gate Gardens through the original entrance of this 19th-century, Grade II listed building, the sense of grandeur created by its architect, the master builder and amateur artist Charles Aldin, is immediately apparent"
Developed in the middle of the 19th-century, Queens Gate Gardens was designed to provide homes for the larger families of the mid-Victorian era upper classes. Notable residents included the Earl of Strathmore, the father of the late Queen Mother.
In later years some houses were converted laterally across adjoining buildings, leading to the creation of spectacular single floor apartments.
As you enter the apartment through the original entrance of this Grade II listed building, the sense of grandeur created by its architect, the master builder and amateur artist Charles Aldin, is immediately apparent.
With ceilings extending to nearly four metres in height, the apartment benefits from what would have historically been the formal reception space of two adjacent houses. On one side of the apartment you have a spectacular, front to rear reception room with an abundance of original period detailing, and on the other side, divided by a wide original entrance hallway, are two large bedroom suites. The rooms facing Queens Gate Gardens are orientated west towards the residents only communal gardens.
South Kensington is one of London’s most desirable and well known neighbourhoods. Renowned for its abundance of places of cultural and historical interest, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Natural History Museum, The Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park, with its 350 acres of open space.
