From Town & Country

THE PROPERTY: This gloriously converted church is truly one of a kind. Originally designed as a chapel for the College of St Mark and St John by the Victorian architect Edward Blore (best known for his contributions to Buckingham Palace), St Mark’s house has been carefully restored to create a luxurious and unique family home.

THE LOCATION: Situated on the Fulham Road in Chelsea, St Mark’s has one of the most sought-after locations in the capital. The area is overflowing with fine-dining options, including the Michelin-starred Rasoi, Launceston Place and Kitchen W8. Just 10 minutes from Fulham Broadway Tube station, it is also within easy walking distance of some of London’s best cultural spots, including the V&A, the Natural History Museum and the Royal Albert Hall.

THE INTERIOR: The five-bedroom, five-floor house is characterised by its large, spacious rooms. With soaring double-height and triple-height ceilings, the house has been tastefully renovated to retain many of its original features, such as the exquisite stained-glass windows and Romanesque arches, whilst being updated with elegant modern touches.
