James Bond fans can now live like OO7 because a London property on the street where the secret agent lived in the original Ian Fleming novels is up for sale.
The five bedroom home sits on Royal Avenue, an exclusive square in the highly sought after borough of Kensington and Chelsea which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren. He was the architect behind another London landmark, St Paul’s Cathedral.
Those hoping the property contains a stockpile of Q-worthy gadgets in the basement and a Martini cabinet might be disappointed though. The interiors are throughly modern and designed with a family in mind.
The £6.85 million asking price does include a designer kitchen featuring Gaggenau appliances and an under-the-counter wine cooler, along with underfloor heating, CCTV, air conditioning, a courtyard and two terraces.
Period features, including high ceilings and ornate plasterwork, abound in the spacious drawing room which overlooks the square. A study, open-plan kitchen, master bedroom with ensuite, family bathroom, shower room, cloakroom and four further bedrooms are spread over five floors.
You can even access the nearby Barton Court for tennis lessons. For a separate fee, of course.
Royal Avenue is on the market with agents Strutt & Parker.
