Stunning Mayfair Refurbishment

Focus SB is proud to be involved in the complete refurbishment of another of London’s premier residential properties in Mayfair.

The mansion was briefly known as Britain’s most expensive ‘fixer-upper’ with a guide price of £50 million, with a projected cost of £20 million for the refurbishment.

Focus SB supplied an extensive selection of electrical accessories for the entire development. The range chosen by the architect and specifier was Ambassador Square finished in Satin Brass. Along with standard switches and sockets, Focus SB manufactured bespoke momentary switches, USB and data outlets, and bespoke combination plates. Continuity of finish throughout the range of plates ensured a cohesive and quality finish to every room in the building.

The house was completed in 1753 and it has been listed as Grade II since 1958.

The mansion boasts previous residents including The Earl of Camperdown (1867-1918) and The Marquis of Anglesey in 1920. After World War II, the property - like many Mayfair properties - was converted to commercial use. The recent re-development returns the property to a single residential home.

Focus SB product consultant Gennifer Ling worked hand in hand with John Coughlan of Electrotech the electrical contractors for the development.

John Coughlan comments: “This is yet another successful project working with Focus SB, the range of quality finishes from Focus SB are excellent. The architect eventually selected the Satin Brass finish which catches the light and looks stunning. Dealing with Focus SB is always a pleasure and their ability to manufacture matching bespoke plates in-house is very important to us delivering complex projects like this one.”

Ling adds: “It is always a pleasure working with John and helping Electrotech deliver all the electrical accessory requirements in this prestigious project. Being involved in the early stages enables me to assist in the design and delivery of bespoke items to match the standard plates, all of which are manufactured in the Focus SB factory,”

The residence includes seven palatial bedroom suites, eight state rooms, a leisure complex and private cinema.

The main bedroom suite is spread across 2,000 sq/ft, which is twice the size of the average new UK home, and includes his and hers dressing rooms and bathrooms.

In plans for the house there is an eight person lift, a mews home for guests or staff, a wine room, office, catering kitchen and a number of high security vaults.

The property had listed Chinese wallpaper and silk wall mountings which were removed and reinstated as part of the refurbishment.
