This Artistic London Home Asking £11.3M Was Once Home to Sculptor John Adams Acton

London has many nicknames: ‘The Swinging City,’ ‘Where Royalty Lives,’ ‘London Town,’ the list goes on. A place of cultural and artistic revolutions, the city is steeped in centuries of innovation and creativity. A St. John’s Wood residence with a colorful history of its own has made its way to the market. Priced at £11.3 million, or just over $14.5 million USD, the delightful property on Sunny Side Road seems destined for design enthusiasts.

From 1882 to 1906, the four-story stunner was home to sculptor John Adams Acton, known for his memorials in Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral. Adams isn’t the only notable name to live on Sunny Side, as his neighbor was none other than the painter Dame Laura Johnson. As the first woman elected to full membership of the Royal Academy in 1936, she was the only British artist to cover the Nuremberg Trials. Not to mention, the neighborhood of St. John’s Wood in general is synonymous with iconic British culture. It’s where Abbey Road, made famous by the Beatles, is located.

With 5,640 square feet at play, those looking for a spacious London pad with an artsy vibe should look no further. The 19th-century home has been thoughtfully restored yet not stripped of its personality, still bursting with period details. Exquisite moldings, iron, and glasswork are the jewelry of the interiors.

It seemingly embraces the best of both worlds in London as it’s just minutes from Regent’s Park yet exudes cottage-like charm and privacy. There are eight bedrooms in total, including a guest suite on the lower level with its own entrance that was once its own flat.

London calling? Declan Selbo and Neir Gigi of Knight Frank hold the listing.
