The house where Mozart composed his first symphony in 1764 boasts five bedrooms, an enormous garden and a guest house.
The Georgian house which once served as Mozart’s summer residence has been listed for £7.5 million.
Built in c.1730 and situated on Mozart Terrace (also known as Ebury Street), the four-storey Belgravia townhouse is close to the affluent areas of Sloane Square and Victoria.
Mozart spent the summer of 1764 in the property with his father and family. During this time he composed his first symphony, No. 1 in E flat major, at just eight years old.
According to Tom Lamb, the Savills agent handling the sale, the 3,871-square-foot house has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and four reception rooms. It also includes an outside home-office building and a two-bedroom guest house.
The house, now a Grade I listed building because of its former musical owner, also has a rare find in London: a 33 metre-long garden.
Speaking to Mansion Global, Tom Lamb said: “The previous owner, who lived in the house for 50 years, did all the renovations and added the two buildings.
“While the original building had a charm of its own, the renovations transformed the old-fashioned residence, adapting it for modern living by creating open-living spaces and adding a generous kitchen.”
On 19 June, the current owner bought the property for £7.1 million. Savills would not disclose her reason for selling so soon after the purchase.
