Former home of famed sculptor for sale in London
House hunting in London? The former home of sculptor John Adams Acton is now for sale in Langford Place, St John's Wood.
Set over four levels, Sunny Side is an eight-bedroom Georgian property with early Victorian additions. It benefits from a secluded rear garden, gated off-street parking (rare in the city), historical features, and contemporary finishes.
Careful thought has been given to the flow and layout of the home. On the ground floor, a welcoming reception hall provides ample space for coats and shoes, while the stained-glass windowed conservatory towards the front offers the perfect breakfasting spot. This floor also houses a dining room, sitting room, kitchen, and a purpose-built bar that overlooks the garden below.
The principle suite, nestled on the first floor, boasts an en-suite bathroom, dressing room, and leafy views across the neighbourhood. There's also two further double bedrooms up here, plus a shared family bathroom and a library so cosy you'll never want to leave.
Spanning approximately 135 ft, the amazing rear garden is the perfect spot for some summer alfresco inspiration. The real star of the show, it features many privacy-giving trees, beautiful lush greenery, and an enchanting treehouse positioned in a wooded area. Green-fingered enthusiasts will fit right in.
In the neighbouring property lived painter Dame Laura Johnson — known to be one of the first women elected to full membership of the Royal Academy in 1936. She was also the only British artist to cover the Nuremburg trials.
'The house has been the home of an international award-winning interior designer for over 21 years,' says Neir Gigi, Head of Sales in Knight Franks St John's Wood office. 'Respect was given to the age and the character of the house to create a home that is timeless in design. The house is very special, truly unique and is ideal for entertaining and family life with a very large 135ft secluded rear garden.'
This property is currently on the market for £11,300,000 with Knight Frank.
