Property of the Day: Onslow Square, London

This smart duplex apartment features a magnificent converted ballroom

THE PROPERTY: This enviably situated property has a unique feature: at its heart is a former ballroom that was once open to the residents of Onslow Square, before the building suffered damage during World War II. Now, the space has been converted into a beautifully decorated drawing-room with superb proportions.

THE LOCATION: Offering access to the private gardens and tennis court of Onslow Square, the property benefits from a tranquil setting despite being moments from the bustle of South Kensington, with its excellent selection of shops, restaurants and world-class museums.

THE INTERIOR: With three bedrooms and two bathrooms spread over two floors, this is a spacious apartment decorated in a lavish style, with original features including cornices and panelling. The master bedroom, which looks out into the private garden, is a particularly attractive space.

WHY WE LOVE IT: This is the perfect opportunity for a prospective owner to restore the former ballroom to its glory days as a space for hosting wonderful parties.
