Property Description

A unique opportunity to purchase Prince John Zylinskyfts former residence in London: ‘The White Houseft. Draped in lavish elegance, this sumptuous and impressive neo-Palladian-style palace sets a new standard for luxury living. It is impressively ornamented and lavishly furnished. The white stucco-fronted residence, arranged over three floors, with a colonnaded porch to the front overlooking the garden is approached by an imposing gatehouse known as 'The Arch', located at the entrance of the plot. 'The Arch' houses four separate self-contained apartments and one office, which can be converted into a studio flat.

The attention to detail in every element, including its stately symmetry, wealth of classical features, and grand appearance, makes this house a testament to Prince Zylinski's personal pride and effort. From its Corinthian-style columns and pillars to its Italian Renaissance-inspired sculptures of classical and Greek mythology, every aspect reflects his dedication to the creation.

It is certainly a unique property and a true masterpiece, recognised as one of the six London's most beautiful buildings by Time Magazine alongside Buckingham Palace and The Shard. Renowned music artists and actors, including Britney Spears and Gary Barlow, have filmed videos on the premises.

The palace has hosted many photoshoots for prestigious magazines, including Tatler, Vogue, The Times, OK and Hello, to promote brands such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Burberry, Manolo Blahnik, Dior and Chanel. These shoots have featured celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Keira Knightley, Ivanka Trump, Katherine Jenkins, Rita Ora, and Darcey Bussell. The Duchess of York did her book promotion at the palace.
