The three-bedroom, three-bathroom house is “a stand-alone gem” in Chelsea. It offers both privacy and an open. It’s very discreet, noting the exterior wall that protects the house from the road. Once you’re behind the wall, no one can see in. But it’s still light and open.
The interiors were custom designed by Mr. Ford, 59, who served as the creative director of both Gucci and YSL before launching his own brand in 2006. That includes sleek aluminum wall treatments and a mix of light-and-dark colors that give the space a modern feel throughout the four floors. He’s arguably the best designer in the world, and he brought that level of luxury to this house, no expense was spared…it’s a trophy property.
Although it’s been years since Mr. Ford lived there, the design has been mostly untouched, according to the listing. The house, which hit the market on Sept. 15, last sold in 2014 for £12 million, according to the U.K. Land Registry.
The ground floor features the formal dining room and a reception room with French doors leading to the west-facing garden, according to the listing. The primary suite takes up the entire upper level, boasting a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom.
An additional bedroom and sitting area are on the first floor, the listing said. Another bedroom is on the lower ground floor, as well as the kitchen—which has a dumbwaiter connected to the dining room upstairs. The gym and steam room, wine cellar, laundry and cloakroom are on that level. The house is also in the most lovely Chelsea location.
