Freddie Mercury’s sister, Kashmira Bulsara, is selling her Grade II listed London apartment at Hyde Park Gardens via estate agent Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Kay & Co. Hyde Park Gardens is a monumental terrace of grand, stucco-faced town houses in W2, dating back to 1836, designed by architect John Crake. The building’s principal front is to the south, facing landscaped gardens and overlooking Hyde Park and the Central London skyline.
Bulsara reveals to LondonLovesProperty, “Freddie always classed London as his home despite him having properties in other parts of the world. I bought the property [at Hyde Park Gardens] in 2005 and like my brother Freddie, I began to love London and decided to have a second property there to enjoy the interesting and exciting things it had to offer. Its diversity, theatres, museums and shopping of course!
“I chose the area for its natural beautiful views. You can see the dome of the Royal Albert Hall and the top of the Albert Memorial. The area, although central to London (Marble Arch is close by), is very quiet when you turn into Hyde Park Gardens.”
Martin Bikhit, managing director at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Kay & Co said, “Located within the Bayswater conservation area, Hyde Park Gardens is an attractive property in a prime location. Due to its interior space and onsite amenities, the property will appeal to a range of buyers including families, couples or individuals looking for central London home.”
Located on the fourth floor of the highly prestigious Georgian building, residents will benefit from lift access, porter service and access to a spectacular, landscaped residents’ garden. The stylish interior has been maintained to the highest of standards and features three spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, reception room, dining room, kitchen and loft room.
Bulsara added, “I bought [the property] after it had been developed and did make adjustments, to suit my personal taste. For example, the internal doors have been redesigned and new secured front and rear doors fitted to the apartment itself. The ‘niches’ in the dining room were redesigned to give a more contemporary look.
“Also the apartment has windows in every room giving it natural light throughout, which appealed to me. The building is not overlooked by any other tall buildings and therefore you have a view from every window which I found is rare in Central London.
“I will be sad to leave this apartment as I enjoyed its comforts but I now feel it’s time to downscale and move on to a new chapter of my life.”
Freddie Mercury’s sister’s Grade II listed London apartment at Hyde Park Gardens, is on the market for £4,750,000 including share of the freehold, by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Kay & Co.
