Acclaimed author Oscar Wilde once owned this four-bedroom, freehold, terraced home in Mayfair. It was the inspiration for Algernon Moncrieff's home in Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest."
The Grade II listed white stucco-fronted house spans four floors and blends both contemporary design with period details seamlessly. Immaculately refurbished throughout, the property has generous entertainment spaces. As well as the kitchen, family room, study dining room, breakfast room and main living area, the property comes with a cinema, bar, steam room and a gym. All floors are accessible via a lift, and the top of the home has a sizeable east-facing roof terrace.
The property has a luxurious principal bedroom with a large en suite bathroom and a spacious dressing area with extensive wardrobe space. The primary guest bedroom comes with a balcony as well as its own dressing room and en suite bathroom on a separate floor from the principal bedroom.
With Curzon Street to the north and Piccadilly to the south, Half Moon Street is situated in the heart of vibrant Shepherd's Market. Local transport links include Green Park tube station (0.2 miles) for the Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly lines.
Half Moon Street is home to several listed properties and is famed for its literary history – it is where the fictional character Wooster and his valet Jeeves of P.G. Wodehouse's novels lived and where in 1763, James Boswell wrote his infamous diary. The street's name comes from the Half Moon pub, which once stood at the corner of the road with Piccadilly and at which Oscar Wilde was a regular visitor.
