Sir Terence and Lady Conran’s London home comes to the market

18 September 2019

Conveniently positioned between Knightsbridge and Sloane Square, the mews launches to the market having been subject to a thorough renovation under its current ownership. After purchasing the historic property 12 years ago, Lady Conran spent the next two years converting it into a contemporary luxury home.

As part of the renovation, the large traditional mews doors to the front of the property were restored while the entire first floor is now given over to the reception room which comprises approximately 520 sq ft of living space and with its exposed original features, is full of character. A garage, the kitchen and sole bedroom suite leading to the paved terrace can be found on the ground floor.

Cited as ‘London’s longest and friendliest mews’, in recent years landlord Cadogan Estates pledged to create a destination for independent, artisan traders at Pavilion Road and today it’s home to a range of smart food shops including a butcher, baker, cheesemonger and greengrocer as well as restaurants, beauty and fashion stores. Running parallel to Sloane Street, the road provides a village neighbourhood hub which comes in response to Chelsea residents requesting local amenities.

Of the sale, Lady Conran says:
“Terence and I have loved living here in Pavilion Road. When we first moved in, about 12 years ago, the street was very busy with constant residential renovation projects on the go, then Cadogan Estates did the brilliant redevelopment at the Sloane Square end, it’s become a real foodie destination. It really feels it’s the centre of things happening in Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Belgravia, yet has a very neighbourhood atmosphere. The house is brilliant for entertaining with the kitchen at the centre of the house, the table seats 12 comfortably. The bedroom is located at the rear so is very peaceful, looking out onto a lush green courtyard. There is a lot of wall space where we hung our collection of contemporary art. We are sad to leave, but now have grandchildren who don’t live in London, so need a few more bedrooms.”

Tom Lamb, Savills Knightsbridge adds:
“I’ve worked in the area for nearly 20 years and in that time, have seen Pavilion Road transform into the exciting foodie and retail destination that it is today. The street is located in a historic part of the capital and is a very coveted place to live, making this mews a very exciting sale to come to the market. From the minute you walk through the front door you can sense the painstaking attention to detail of the renovation works, crowned by the impressive living space and glorious traditional features. Its location, close to Knightsbridge and Sloane Square, makes Pavilion Road an ideal London base for someone and we anticipate all kinds of buyers to come forward who want to be close to the local lifestyle offering. The fact that the property has been the London home to Sir Terence and Lady Conran for the last twelve years, makes it all the more special. Bringing a house like this to market is a real privilege.”
