Presiding over the eastern edge of one of London’s beloved royal parks, Chester Terrace is a regal enclave of grand proportions. Considered to be the city’s largest street signs, towering arches marking either entrance are emblazed with the name of the road. Beyond, the terrace’s façade stretches unbroken across almost 1,000 feet of Crown Estate land.
Past an impressive frontage of soaring Corinthian columns and intricate masonry, a design-led home provides a contemporary update on its late-Georgian framework. A striking entranceway expands into a refined dining room where considered interventions serve to spotlight period details.
Above an ultra-modern fireplace, a floating concrete wall creates symmetry and makes a feature of the television it frames. Complete with white wooden shutters, tall windows are generous with natural light and create a connection to the outside. To the rear of the space, doors slide to reveal an arresting kitchen with dark, minimalistic cabinetry, monolithic stone worktops and Gaggenau appliances.
A sense of timeless elegance has been curated within the first-floor reception room. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide leafy views, creating an uplifting atmosphere. A fireplace makes for a heritage centrepiece while above, the space is crowned with distinctive cornicing. Flanked by dark bespoke joinery, hardwood flooring flows into a rear reception room with olive-green walls and a sculptural chandelier. Like all rooms at the rear of the home, it looks over a quiet mews.
The principal bedroom suite resides on the second floor. Optimised for sleep, this calming space features neutral tones and organic textures. A bank of sash windows illuminates the space while a wood-lined walk-in wardrobe opens into a split-level en suite bathroom. This space features a bath, an expansive frameless shower and textures of marble. A tranquil third-floor bedroom enjoys whitewashed shiplap walls, fitted storage and an adjoining study. Each served by a bathroom, three further bedrooms benefit from fitted storage and natural light.
On the lower ground floor, a wood-wrapped studio is a distinguished space for working or reading. This level also benefits from three vault spaces for storage. At the top of the home, a glass roof pours sunlight into all levels of the house. At the touch of a button, the skylight retracts to grant access to a large roof garden. With enough space for entertaining, this decked, fifth-floor terrace provides an uncompromisingly private space with views over the treetops of Regent’s Park.
