Hugh Grant’s former abode has just appeared on the market and it really is something else. The three bed South Kensington penthouse apartment just screams A-lister so we thought it was only fair to show you all around. Now forget the apartment for a moment; let’s talk the view which is a treat all on its own. From the 30 square metre terrace you can see most of London’s skyline including The V&A, The Natural History Museum, The Shard and The London Eye. Whoever snaps up this pad will be able to enjoy this fantastic view from the comfort of their newly acquired six person hot tub. Not bad huh? hugh grant terrace   Step inside the apartment and you’re greeted by American walnut wood floors, plush silks and custom made crystal chandeliers. While it just screams bachelor pad we can see a few feminine touches here and there. If you want to steal the look of this luxurious reception area have a perusal at our wood effect porcelain tiles. Havana Dock would make a great alternative to these real wood floors as you wouldn’t have to worry about future maintenance, bowing or water staining. Bonus! hugh grant reception   Carry on into the apartment and you’ll find these gorgeous, all marble en suites which are definitely our style. Who doesn’t love bathing like an Egyptian queen? We’re not sure our purses would agree though, marble can be costly to buy, install and maintain so why not try one of our marble inspired porcelain tiles? They look just as effective and you don’t need to worry about the future maintenance costs, just enjoy your luxurious surroundings. hugh grant bath   Finally we bring you to the heart of the home, the kitchen. If you fancy panoramic views of London whilst you fry your eggs in a morning, this kitchen may just be for you. The marble look worktops work beautifully with the moody dark flooring, giving the space an almost regal look. If you love this kitchen as much as us then why not try something similar in your home? Our wide range of dark floor tiles would mimic this flooring perfectly. We’d recommend either Beestone N or Galaxy Black to achieve this look. kitchen   So now that we’ve shown you around, have you fallen in love with this apartment as much as us? Sold for £3.5m in 2003 we can’t imagine how much this London pad costs now...
