Alexander McQueen’s penthouse in Mayfair has just hit the market, priced at $10.6 million.
The late designer purchased this space in 2009, and he wanted to transform it into his private home. Occupancy was originally built in 1897 as the home of Alexander Mountbatten, the grandson of Queen Victoria. In 1934, before McQueen, the famous British humorist PG Woodhouse inherited this area of Mountbatten family. Shortly thereafter, the building is divided into apartments, after the Second World War.
Duplex is located near Hyde Park, where McQueen regularly walked their dogs. He has paid this apartment $3.2 million, but he lived in an apartment in nearby Green Street. At the time of his death, he continues to renovate the penthouse which is now available for purchase. Now, that space has become an homage to the famous British designer, with an area of about 200 m2, roof terrace, marble bathroom, VIP bedrooms and a dining room with enough space for ten people.
As far as the details, we can easily notice the accents that McQueen used in his creations – a skull and a large number of mirrors and the walls of penthouses adorn the photographs of his most famous fashion shoots.
