The former London home of renowned music icon Sting is for sale on Westminster’s Old Queen Street for a cool £12.95 million.
The elegant Grade II listed Georgian townhouse — which was originally built in 1775 — spreads across seven floors. Modern and light-filled, the living space is breathtaking, with a grand drawing room, contemporary kitchen, formal dining room, two roof terraces, and a lift to make journeying from each floor a real breeze.
According to current owners, Sting and his wife Trudie Styler rented the mansion for around two and half years while their nearby property on Queen Anne’s Gate was being renovated.
Some beautiful period features that have caught our eye include the marble fireplaces, intricate cornicing, high ceilings, Georgian sash windows, parquet flooring, grand freestanding bathtub and the Juliet balcony in the master bedroom (Big Ben can be seen poking up from behind the trees here).
The contemporary kitchen is located on the lower ground floor. Here, there is an island, integrated high-quality appliances, a wine fridge (ideal for weekends), and bright ceiling spotlights.
Head upstairs and you’ll find a further four guest bedrooms, two of which have an ensuite, plus a play room, additional study space and a roof terrace.
The townhouse might be right in the city centre, but it has a secluded and peaceful rhythm to it. The private rear garden has a gate with access to Birdcage Walk and St James’s Park, while the balconies each provide spectacular views of the city skyline.
Gary Hersham, Founding Director of Beauchamp Estates, said: ‘Old Queen Street is a beautiful Georgian townhouse with elegant living space and great acoustics, the perfect home for any music mogul or performer looking for exceptional entertaining space.’
Sting was born in Wallsend, Northumberland, and is best known for his song Every Breath You Take — the most-played song in radio history. As well as his illustrious musical career, Sting is also known for his philanthropy work.
Old Queen Street is for sale with sole agent Beauchamp Estates for £12,950,000. For further information please contact Beauchamp Estates on 020 7499 7722.
