Fashion Icon Tom Ford’s Former Home in London Sells for a Hefty $17.5 Million
Fashion designer and filmmaker, Tom Ford’s, has quite the professional exposure under his belt. With a career that started way back in the 80s, and now consists of powerful positions like the creative director for brands like Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci, Ford has successfully built an empire to his name.
Now, we hear that the fashion icon’s former London home has been put up on the market, demanding a total of $17.5 million. The dwelling was sold by Ford back in 2012, and after all this time, it was thrown back on the market on the 15th of September.
According to Mansion Global, we don’t have any information on how much the designer purchased the property for or about the time he lived in the residence. But, according to the listing, even though Ford hasn’t lived in the house for years, almost all of the design of the house has been kept the way Ford designed it. Of course, after being touched by the artistic hands of the mogul, why would anyone want to change it?
Mr. Ford, 59, who launched his own brand in 2005, custom-designed the interior of the house, down to the last window. The vibe of the mansion is said to be extremely chic and sleek, including polished wall treatments and a mixture of dark and light colors to give the place a modern glow throughout all three floors.
The listing says that the house contains a total of three bedrooms and three bathrooms; while the master suite of the house is taken up by the whole upper floor, featuring a bathroom and a dressing room. The ground floor contains a reception room with huge French doors, as well as a formal dining room.
These magnificent French doors lead to the garden that’s faced towards the west. On this level, there is also a bedroom and a kitchen, which conveniently contains a dumbwaiter to cater to the dining room on the upper floor. Finally, the first floor features an additional bedroom, along with other rooms such as the steam room, gym, laundry room, wine cellar, and cloakroom.
The house’s listing agent, Charles Olver, explained that the home offers both a bright and open layout, as well as privacy. He said that the place is very discreet, as there is a huge exterior wall that separates the house from the road. He also mentioned that as soon as you are behind the wall, no one is able to see inside, although, it is still open and enjoys a ton of natural light.
