Lee Radziwill’s Former London Home Is on the Market
You can now own a little piece of history in the form of the luxurious London townhouse where Lee Radziwill resided with her husband, Prince Stanislaw “Stas” Radziwill. The late American socialite purchased the sprawling home in 1959, which is located just behind Buckingham Palace and now it can be yours, for £8.75 million—just over $11.6 million.
Radziwill and her husband regularly entertained high profile figures in the double-fronted home—including her sister, First Lady Jackie Kennedy, and brother-in-law President John F. Kennedy—making use of the five-story home for frequent gatherings.
Held by Dexters Westminster, the home is situated in a quiet enclave close to Buckingham Palace and Green Park in the Birdcage Walk Conservation Area. Nearby, there are plenty of stores and restaurants, and you’ll also find amenities of Belgravia, St James’s and Mayfair just a short walk away.
Ideal for a large family or those who like to entertain often, the 5,600+ square feet home has seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, and three spacious reception rooms. Outside, there are several secluded patio areas, including a roof terrace, ideal for entertaining and relaxing during the summer months.
On the lower ground floor, there’s a spacious family room and an open plan kitchen and dining room with French doors that lead out onto a private patio garden.
Upstairs, the ground floor offers two reception rooms and a private terrace, whilst the first floor is dedicated to the principal suite. There are six further bedrooms and three further bathrooms on the second and third floors, as well as a decked roof terrace accessed through a glass sliding roof panel.
Throughout the property, neutral colors and updated furnishings gives the space a fresh, minimalistic, and modern feel, while vintage-style accessories offer a welcomed contrast.
“This property is not only grand and historic but conveniently located close to the green open spaces of St. James’s and Green Park. On the doorstep of Mayfair, and close to Victoria, it would make a glamorous family home,” says Harry Laflin, Manager of Dexters Westminster.
