Luxury Belgravia townhouse of royal milliner for sale for £14.5 million

The elegant 19th-century Belgravia townhouse, above, that was home and workshop to Simone Mirman, late milliner to the Queen and film stars, is on the market through Rokstone for £14.5 million.

Paris-born Mirman based herself at 9 Chesham House for 30 years, the two ground-floor rooms serving as a shop, while the first-floor main reception room was a salon for VIP clients who included actress Joan Collins — made a dame in the latest New Year Honours.

On the two floors above were workrooms where the hats were made, and Mirman and her husband lived on the top floor. 

When she retired in 1990 the house was turned into flats, but behind the Thomas Cubitt-designed stucco façade, it has been converted back to a luxurious five-bedroom home.

In prestigious Chesham Place, it’s just around the corner from Sloane Street boutiques including Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chloé, Fendi and Tom Ford.
