Grangewood are pleased to announce the successful completion of this high profile full refurbishment and re-configuration project on behalf of a Private Client for this landmark Grade II listed house in Eaton Square, Belgravia.
Grangewood has worked closely with both Grosvenor and the design team to deliver this extraordinary home, which comprises five floors plus a basement and adjoining mews house.
Originally built for the Duke of Westminster the house has been reconfigured internally and completely refurbished by Grangewood with specialist and bespoke finishes and installations throughout.
Our team have been responsible for all conservation and restoration works, inside and outside the building, including the installation of a ‘Winter Garden’ located on the roof of the mews house complete with a sliding roof.
The sympathetic restoration of this stunning entrance hall to this magnificent residence, entailed the installation of Quartzite Silver and white Macubas marble, hand selected in Italy by the client and laid in a complex geometric design.
The embellishments surrounding the door frames were restored in fibrous plaster and then gilded in 22 carat moon gold.
Bespoke Saligo mirrors were framed in the newly installed timber moulding with co-ordinated cut-outs for period luminaries.
The original Portland stone staircase was sympathetically restored, all Portland stone treads and risers were cleaned and repaired where required, a new dado rail was fabricated from a mix of fibrous and timber for the swooping curves along the staircase , and then decorated and gilded with 22 carat moon gold.
The original oak handrail was completely stripped back, restored and French polished.
The dado panel received a specialist Gesso decorative finish which included newly formed panels decorated with stretched silk from ground to first floor.
