Late fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s former Mayfair residence is now converted into a plush new home for property lovers’ world over. Designed to pay homage to the legendary artist, the new décor includes features that very aptly resonate with the late designer’s style and sensibilities. While McQueen is reported to have purchased the property in 2009 for $3.1 million USD, the refurbished version will be available to buyers for no less than $10.6 Million USD.
The project included reforming the 1,790 square feet duplex penthouse into a stunner as it stands today and was conceptualized and completed till the very end by celebrated interior design firm – Paul Davis London. Striking features of the new structure include portraits of McQueen, photos of his muses Isabella Blow and Annabelle Neilson, and fashion shots of McQueen’s iconic clothing.
Further, one can also spot a “fashion catwalk” lined with mirrors and photos of McQueen’s famous fashion shows inside the home, along with strong references to his skull motifs that are incorporated into the wall mirror. The color scheme is predominantly a mixture of —black, cream, and silver, which again reflects back on his trademark designs.
Located in the plush locales of 17 Dunraven Street in Mayfair, the townhouse was originally built in 1897 and has been home to various renowned names like His Highness Alexander Mountbatten and author PG Woodhouse, apart from being McQueen’s humble abode.
The luxe penthouse incorporates two-bedroom suites on the upper floor, as well as a roof terrace with a black timber decked space that can be doubled as a 2,400-square-foot entertaining venue. Glamorous, high-end, swish, and lavish- McQueen’s home is undoubtedly a whole package when it comes to luxury residences!
