An eclectic London flat with plenty of personality
In most London suburbs, the 130-year-old Walton House would make quite an impression.
But in Knightsbridge it rubs shoulders with some very fancy neighbours and so it might not immediately catch your eye as a standout heritage home.
But behind the front door of the flat occupying the top two floors of Walton House lies a beautiful, eclectically-styled home worth a not too paltry £3.25 million (NZ$5.62m).

From pastel pink walls coupled with animal prints in the kitchen, to subdued greys in the bedroom and deep purples in the living area, no two rooms bear resemblance to each other.
The two-bedroom, loft-style flat is spread over 199sqm and features spacious living areas, including a reception room, dining room and kitchen area, a bespoke spiral staircase and a luxurious bathroom with sloping glass walls which wouldn't be out of place in a 5-star hotel.
The Grade II-listed Walton House was designed by Victorian architect Norman Shaw, who also designed the former headquarters of Scotland Yard, in 1882.
In order to preserve the history of the property, the owners have carefully styled the flat with bespoke joinery which enhance the original features.
Located just a stones throw from Harrods, Sloane Street's boutiques and the Victoria & Albert Museum, this swanky flat is perfectly situated for a fabulous London life.
The flat is currently listed by Maskells Estate Agents.
