The cream stucco fronted period property is located on Acacia Road, one of the most sought-after streets in NW8, and currently offers 3,660sq ft of living space.

But at least £1.5 million has been added to the property’s price tag because the current vendors have obtained planning permission to double the size of the living space to 7,619sq ft.

The £10 million house is in a conservation area, where buildings have a unique and distinctive architectural and historic character.

This means that gaining planning consent from Westminster Council for any major extension work or external changes is especially difficult.
