Fashion designer Patrick Cox has found a buyer for his 1,908 sq.ft (177 sq.m) Victorian villa in Little Venice, as he prepares to move to Ibiza and start on another ‘grand designs’ style property project

The designer owns an eponymous fashion label that specializes in the creation of leather goods and accessories, but it is through shoes that Patrick Cox first made his name, which makes it no suprise to hear that Patrick designed his home with a vast walk-in “shoe den”, with enough room for 400 pairs.

After living in a flat in trendy Notting Hill, Patrick purchased the house on Lanark Road in 2002, spending almost 1.5 years remodeling and meticulously designing the property before finally moving-in during late 2003.

Providing substantial accommodation over lower ground, ground and two upper floors, the designer transformed the original four bedroom villa into a stunning “entertaining house”, providing an abundance of open lateral living space. The home provided the perfect luxury pad for Patrick, as well as his two beloved British bulldogs Caesar and Brutus.

Whilst the original period staircase was retained, the four floors were totally gutted and rebuilt behind the retained Victorian façade, creating a bright and airy open-plan style contemporary home finished to the highest specification.

On the lower ground floor is the designer kitchen, large dining area and a media room/entertaining space opening onto a patio terrace at the front and the garden to the rear. Sleek stainless steel kitchen units are complimented by luxurious flooring created from slabs of the finest chocolate coloured Emperador veined marble.

The ground floor provides a 27 ft double volume reception room with generous ceiling height, bespoke joinery and American walnut wood parquet flooring. Patrick’s master bedroom suite occupied the entire first floor complete with black Nero marble bathroom. The house is complete with a guest ‘disco bathroom’ featuring an array of mirrors and a terraced rear garden.

Patrick says: “For fifteen years the villa in Little Venice has been home for myself and the dogs. Its close to Regent’s Park, which is ideal for walking the dogs and the house has totally bespoke interiors and represented a very special purchase for the discerning buyer.”

The property was first placed on the market in May 2017 by north London estate agents Aston Chase, and was sold for the full asking price this week.

“I will really miss the house and Little Venice, but I am looking forward to taking on another “Grand Designs” style project in Ibiza. The guys at Aston Chase have been great and they have delivered the successful sale they promised me when instructed,” added the designer.

Mark Pollack, Founding Director of Aston Chase says: “Patrick’s house is in immaculate condition and finished to a luxurious specification. This sale also demonstrates the current appetite for smartly refurbished or newly remodelled or new build homes. Currently around 65 per cent of our clients are choosing to purchase high quality newly built or recently refurbished homes, with less demand for tired or outdated second-hand homes. Discerning buyers want “turn key’ properties which are well presented and ready for immediate occupation.”
