Remarkable Restoration

From the polished and panelled entrance doors, to the new, natural slate roof, the façade of Buckingham Gate has been completely renovated.
 
Previous extensions to the building have been removed and new features added: full height, south-facing windows; bi-folding doors with Juliette balconies; a series of terraces and outdoor amenity spaces; and a reworked, south-facing rear aspect to allow for more space and light.
 
Inside, the original Regency-style rooms have been meticulously restored: each cornice, ceiling rose and wall moulding has been made perfect once more, along with the staircases, French windows, shutters and doors.
 
The grand fireplaces of the formal rooms have either been restored or replaced with the utmost attention to detail and authenticity.

Architect Veere Grenney says of No. 6 Buckingham Gate - "It was the grand scale and dramatic beauty of this magnificent 19th Century townhouse that instantly attracted me to the project. To be given the opportunity to work on a house of such epic proportions is extremely rare in Central London.

There is a carefully considered choreography to the layout of the house that creates a naturally graceful flow of space. A magnificent Portland stone staircase, reminiscent of the National Portrait Gallery, allows one to glide effortlessly between the seven floors and appreciate the serene elegance of the house.

This exceptionally rare property is made rarer still by the quality and theatre of the principal rooms. The glamour of the house’s former role as an ambassadorial residence during the 19th Century, has been incorporated into the modern adaptation of these captivating rooms.

No.6 is a truly unique home that embodies understated elegance and demonstrates the very highest quality of design and craftsmanship."

 

History

No.6 Buckingham Gate stands in the former grounds of the Jacobean mansion, Tart Hall.

In 1633 the Hall was purchased by Thomas Howard, the Earl of Arundel, for his wife, Lady Alethea, as a pleasant retreat from Arundel House, near the Strand.

By the mid-19th century, a newly laid road ‘Buckingham Gate’ first appeared on the ordnance survey map of 1869, at the same time as the Duchy of Cornwall office, accompanied by the legend ‘Site of Tart Hall.’
