Trophy home

Built in 1817 by Thomas Cubitt, this Grade II-listed house is, at 4,600sq ft, the largest on Wilton Street, SW1, complete with extensive terraces and a key (on application) to the gardens and tennis court of Belgrave Square; Savills (020 7730 0822) is seeking £14,25 million. The six-bedroom ‘turn-key’ trophy Ben and Nick Wilson of Residence One, whose precious project in nearby Eccleston Mews achieved a record-breaking £6.25 million.

The Kelly Hoppen touch

London developer Regal Homes (020 7328 7171) is working with Kelly Hoppen on its 10th turn-key property. Located on Bishops Avenue, N2 the seven-bedroom mansion will be completed this autumn. Early birds, who can adapt the spec to their own requirements, should not delay; Regal’s last trophy home in Hampstead (pictured) secured circa £16 million-off-market.

Highgate society

For those who would count Kate Moss and Jude Law as neighbours, Octagon has just completed a pair of Georgian-style houses on The Grove, N6. Blessed by the Highgate society for replacing an ugly 1970s apartment block, these six-storey, six-bedroom homes feature contemporary interiors with glitzy glass lifts and cost £10 million each through Glentree (020 8209 1149)

Family-friendly Fulham

Set around three garden squares on Farm Lane, SW6, London Square Fulham (0333 666 2737) is a secure, traffic-free scheme in the heart of family-friendly West London. The 40 Georgian-inspired townhouses have three, four or five bedrooms, small private gardens and underground parking. With more than 80% snapped up off-plan, prices range from £3.3 million to £4.15 million.

Bachelor pad

Following in the footsteps of the Candy Brothers come twins Will and Ben Samuels. Since 2009, their company Willben have exchanged sales for investors exceeding £50 million. Their latest project, a 7,100sq ft house on Chester Square, SW1, will up that figure by £35 million. If you don’t need seven bedrooms, a spa, cinema, garage or staff quarters, batchelor-boy Will is selling his £2.35 million two-bedroom flat (pictured) on Redcliffe Square, SW10, through Farleys (020 7589 1234) and Strutt & Parker 020 7373 1010).

Edwardian classic

One Mulberry Walk, SW3, is an exceptional family home that has been redeveloped behind its Edwardian façade by Lennox Investment’s dream team, Rupert Bradstock and Willie Gething. As former founders of home-search agents Property Vision, they know how to tick buyers’ boxes. One Mulberry Walk has width, height and light. It harnesses the talents of interior architects Anthony Collett, interior designer Melissa Wyndham and landscape architect Randle Siddeley, to provide a refreshingly real and individual family home that is stylish, comfortable and timeless. Offering 5,245sq ft of four-storey, six-bedroom accommodation, it costs £20 million through Knight Frank (020 7349 4300) and Russell Simpson (020 7225 0277). An extra £750,000 will secure everything from the fabulous fine art to the Smythson letterhead. All that’s missing are children and a happy Labrador!
