Still up for sale, in the heart of London, is a beautiful mews house that once belonged to Sir Michael Caine. Just around the corner from Hyde Park, this luxury pad is on the market for £4,950,000.
Sir Michael Caine lived in the property at the height of the swinging 60s and called it home whilst filming iconic films such as The Italian Job and Alfie. The property is modern, spacious and a world away from the prefabricated house he grew up in Elephant and Castle.
Since Caine moved in, Alison Close has become a rather exclusive area. The mews is now gated and accessible only to residents – and the property itself has been dramatically improved. The pokiness of a mews house has been banished as two houses have been merged together. The large windows, high ceilings, and double-size rooms offer the homeowner plenty of space.
There are four generously sized bedrooms, which are all fitted with bespoke wardrobes and ensuites. The property, which is spread across three floors and boasts a state-of-the-art kitchen, library and off site parking.
After leaving the property (and the UK) in the 1970s, Caine returned with real estate vengeance and now owns a secluded converted barn in Surrey (for himself and his wife) and a two-bedroom flat in Chelsea Harbour.
