Walton Street, Knightsbridge, London, England
A former church in Knightsbridge, London has been masterfully converted into a luxurious private home. The historic building, previously known as St. Saviours House, extends more than 12,102 square feet with a spacious great room with 40-foot vaulted ceilings, oak beams and original stone pillars. It was designed by Belgrave Square architect George Basevi in 1838. The Daily Mail reported in 2019 that the Grade II listed property was sold off by the Diocese of London in 1998 for £1 million. According to Evening Standard, the residence was owned by Alain Boublil, writer of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon, for 6 years before selling in 2009 for £13.5 million to a Thai businessman who spent an additional £10 million on a major renovation. The property also includes seven bedroom suites, a glass elevator and parking for three cars. In addition there is an entire floor dedicated to leisure which provides a swimming pool, home gym, treatment room, sauna, steam room and media room with bar. St. Saviours House was last on the market for £44 million with Stuart Bailey & Harry Dawes of Knight Frank. It doesn’t appear that the property ever sold. It’s not currently on the market.
