Versace's house on sale for £15 million

A mansion in Mayfair that was re-designed for Gianni Versace has been put on the market with an impressive price-tag.

Located in the prestigious Charles Street, the four bedroom 18th century home is for sale for offers around £15 million.

The luxury property was completely revamped just a few weeks before the iconic designer was murdered and he never had the chance to live in the Grade II listed property.

Versace purchased the house in the mid-nineties as he expanded his fashion business and felt he needed a London base.

Number 50 Charles Street was owned by a number of wealth merchants and high-society figures before being converted in to offices following the Second World War.

When Versace took possession he set about upgrading the 5,756 square foot home to reflect his own unique style.

Some of the features installed include a marble slab entrance hall, an impressive glass conservatory and 30-foot high double doors that lead directly to an Italian-style garden.

The property has now been put on the market with London-based Wetherell estate agents and is set to impress any buyer looking for a luxurious home in the capital.

Peter Wetherell, chief executive of Wetherell, explained: "The Charles Street mansion is a striking fusion of highly traditional and contemporary, with a brick front and a glass back, and inside classic rooms and modern open plan spaces.

"The patio garden flows into the glass conservatory, the largest of its kind in a private home in London's West End.

"It will appeal to a buyer who wants a statement home with space to entertain on a large scale."

Versace was killed outside his Miami beach home in 1997 by serial killer Andrew Cunanan.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801780105-ADNFCR
