Simon Scott, Sales Manager at Hamptons International Knightsbridge and Mayfair comments: ‘They say, it’s the luck of the Irish, and this house has it in abundance. It is the former home of Michael Flatley, internationally known for Irish dance shows Riverdance, Lord of the Dance , Fleet of Flames and Celtic Tiger Live, the house has been beautifully restored by its current owners.'
He continues: 'Redesigned by 1508 London, the house is the epitome of luxury London living, from statement Art Deco marble bathrooms with gold taps, through to the bespoke chandeliers that hang next to original surrealist artworks.
'The house has been decorated in a palette of rich cremes and off-white, with Crittal screens that frame rooms or antique mirrors that amplify the natural light which pours through the central atrium.
'With Knightbridge on the doorstep, along with great schools including Knightsbridge School and the future Prince’s Gardens Preparatory School in Prince’s Gate, I suspect it will go to a family either already living in the area or migrating to be closer to these schools.'
The property is on sale via Hamptons for £18,500,000.
