Set over four floors The Embassy is the majestic family home one would expect of a former African (Gabonese) embassy building, and provides what is essentially a country home in a green London setting. With accommodation over four floors the property has ample space for family as well as entertaining.
The accommodation comprises six bedrooms (five suites), eight bathrooms, four principal reception rooms, including a formal drawing room, study, dining room (with adjacent butler’s pantry) and a cinema and snooker room, an indoor pool, steam room, gym, wine cellar and laundry room.
In addition, there is a gatehouse for staff which could be used as a home office or an outside playroom. There is garaging for two cars and off street parking for six more behind secure electronic gates.
The drawing room captures the overall scale of the property, measuring 12.4m by 8.8m. Overlooking the rear garden with three sets of French doors providing access to the terrace and lawn beyond, the room has bespoke furnishings to complement the overall style and design.
Outdoors, the landscaped gardens are just under half an acre in size and feature terracing, planting and a large lawn. An outdoor kitchen and fireplace and pergolas covered by climbing plants make the garden an ideal spot for enjoying a summer glass of wine.
The property is situated directly across from Wimbledon Common and five minutes from all the facilities in Wimbledon Village.
The guide price is £18m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on +44 (0)20 8946 0026 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
