Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is globally recognized as the husband of Princess Beatrice – Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter – however, he holds an equally prestigious reputation in the property world.
Edoardo, a developer and founder of Banda, a property and interior design practice, has unveiled the studio’s latest project – a penthouse near Westbourne Grove, London – currently listed for £6.9 million ($9.47 million).
The apartment, which sits on the fringe of Hyde Park, is described by Banda as one of the ‘latest and most exciting projects in prime central London’ – and one of the world’s best homes. Here, we take a tour.
The penthouse is located on the fifth floor of a mid-nineteenth-century property that exhibits a beautiful stucco façade. However, while the exteriors are something to behold – the interiors are even more inspiring.
Firstly, upon entering the home, the property showcases grand entryway ideas through its entrance hall that leads into the open-plan living space. The entryway showcases a collection of artworks, including a sculptural piece in silk that is mounted on the wall by artists Ursula Nistrup and Lotte Henriksen.
Banda dressed the living space with low-level yet sumptuous furniture to accentuate the height of the eaves whilst drawing your eye to the black Marquina marble fireplace designed by Edoardo and his team.
They added a distressed overmantle mirror to emphasize the oak beams to create a French barn aesthetic amid the English capital.
Double doors lead from the primary living space to a dark gray marble kitchen – to a dining area that serves as a catalyst of dining room ideas. Stand-out elements include the dressed dining table and chairs designed by the Swiss architect Pierre Jeanneret.
Meanwhile, the penthouse has a large master bedroom suite with a marble bathroom, double shower, and separate dressing area. These walls are finished in a fine green plaster from Studio Loho, in a nod to one of the most sought-after hues of the season.
There is also a further art-filled guest bedroom with a walnut headboard with Rose Uniacke side tables.
Plus, the 2,300 square foot apartment also boasts an additional 500 square foot private roof terrace – which acts as a trove of small garden ideas – through its ability to blur the lines between the interior and exterior spaces.
‘The feeling of nature and light is ever-present with the materials used and the views over the garden square. With its own private, expansive terrace, the owners can seek solace high above Notting Hill and fully immerse themselves in the sense of overall calm,’ Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi explains in his discussion of the space.
More information about the penthouse is available via Banda Property.
