Alexander McQueen’s Mayfair property has recently been put on the market for $10.6 million. The late designer purchased the space back in 2009, with the goal of transforming the residence into a home for himself. As most are aware, McQueen took his own life a year later in 2010.
Upon undergoing refurbishment, the home is now an homage to the British designer. Located at 17 Dunraven Street, the 1,790-square-foot duplex penthouse boasts a roof terrace with views of Mayfair, marble bathrooms, two VIP bedroom suites, and a 10-seat dining area.
Details throughout the home include McQueen’s signature skull motif, photographs of his most famous fashion shoots, and a number of mirrors.
The property was originally built in 1897 as it became the home of His Highness Alexander Mountbatten, the grandson of Queen Victoria, and relative of Louis and Philip Mountbatten. In 1934, it was acquired by author PG Woodhouse. In 1945, it was ultimately converted into flats.
