Ashberg House pool

Ashberg House is a striking new residential property created by leading design studio Morpheus London. Situated on Cathcart Road in the heart of Chelsea, Central London, the property spans nearly 9,000 sq ft and is arranged over five floors.

The home takes its name and inspiration from the famous Ashberg diamond, an amber-coloured cushion-cut diamond once included in the Russian Crown Jewels. The design team has taken influence from this extraordinary stone, not least in its glass architectural aesthetic and faceted interior details, but also the precise and exacting construction methods employed.

The property includes five bedrooms, a spacious open-plan living, kitchen and formal dining room, private cinema room, staff quarters and a stunning spa area complete with swimming pool, steam room and gymnasium. The house also offers spacious outside areas perfect for entertaining.

The residence is designed in a modern vernacular to include a plethora of glass, black basalt and bronze details. The building elevations are a provocative counterpoint to Chelsea’s traditional brick and stucco villas, boldly challenging the status quo.

The interior architecture has also been carefully considered to maximize the flow of natural light around the space. This is further supported by the property’s centerpiece – a striking chandelier handcrafted by glass couturiers, Lasvit which acts to connect the ground floor with the garden floor below. Composed of over 140 glass ‘leaves’ in graduated color, the ‘Falling Leaf Chandelier’ imitates the external foliage of the trees in the garden, connecting the interior of the house to the exterior.

Every detail and element of the project has been designed to the highest standard, with over 90% of furniture pieces being designed bespoke for the property.
