Wilben Developments Ltd, the property development company started by twin brothers William and Benjamin Samuels, has achieved a record price for the sale of a beautiful, three bedroom mews property in Eagle Place, Chelsea.
The 1,931 sq. ft. property, which sits behind Chelsea’s Ferrari showroom, was sold fully furnished for an impressive £3.9m (equating to over £2000 per sq. ft.), breaking the record for mews sales in the immediate area.
Apart from the high quality interior design and finish, the most striking alteration Wilben made to the property was to reconfigure the main living space. By moving one of the bedrooms to the ground floor it was able to open-up the entire first floor to create an open plan triple reception area, thereby introducing a remarkable, free flowing, lateral living space; an exceptional asset to this style of property.
William Samuels – Company Founder commented “Generally, the modernisation of modern mews houses tends to be unimaginative. We approached this project with a view to turning fairly dark and standard space into something really special. That meant starting afresh and the end result is a revelation and justifies the price achieved.”
The property has excellent natural light particularly on the sky lit staircase and in the open reception, where the impressive floor-to-ceiling windows now shine light through from both sides. The joinery, throughout the house has been completed to the highest standard and all to the company’s own specifications. Wilben has paid close attention to detail, with a beautiful, polished plaster wall finish up the staircase and most notably with the lighting, which is positioned to highlight the rooms’ key features and to give the perfect ambience to each individual space for every time of day.
