A magnificent property that was dubbed ‘really delightful’ by Charles Dickens when he stayed there for the summer season from 1861 onwards has just hit the market for $29 million (£22.5million).
3 Hanover Terrace was designed by John Nash in 1822. Dickens and his family took up residence in the Regent’s Park prized location for the summer season of 1861, and liked it so much they returned to it several times for the following summers.
The Great Expectations author would host his contemporaries at the London property, which is brought to the market by the London House luxury estate agent. Pictured: The home’s master bathroom includes an impressive marble bathtub, an Italian shower and his and hers sink, as well as a multitude of mirrors for pampering and preening.
Spread over five floors, the Grade-I listed property boasts 6,103 square feet of space, eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and eight reception rooms, as well as a gym and a garage, and a terrace and patio area. Pictured: The entrance hall, which opens to the dining-room and one of the eight reception rooms, has a modern feel, thanks to mirrored furniture, silver accents and a neutral tiled floor.
The new owner will count Britain’s wealthiest artist Damien Hirst as their neighbor. He bought his home on Hanover Terrace in 2014. Pictured: This cozy living-room is lined with mirrors on one side and French window on the other, mixing both modern and traditional design styles.
