The lavish London manse where actress Cara Delevingne and her sisters were raised has hit the market for $29.8 million, listed with Beauchamp Estates.

In 2000, following the death of prior owner John Aspinall, a high-profile casino magnate and zoo owner, Delevingne’s parents acquired the Grade II-listed house, set in the city’s posh Belgravia neighborhood. Delevingne’s father is property developer Charles Delevingne, and her mother is Pandora Delevingne, the daughter of Janie Sheffield, a lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret.

Dating to the late 1830s, the Lyall Street manse was originally built by “architect of Belgravia” Thomas Cubitt and encompasses 5,500 square feet over four stories plus a lower level. The Delevingne family offloaded the double-wide townhouse in 2015 to the current owner, who undertook a total renovation inspired by the opulence of Aspinall’s era.

The five-bedroom home now features a grandiose marble-line entry hall with a Regency fireplace and a sweeping staircase hall that leads to the upper floors. A ground-floor sitting room includes Chinese lacquer cabinets and a bay window, while the chef’s kitchen is outfitted with Gaggenau appliances. On the first floor, a spectacular main drawing room takes up the full width of the residence with dual reception and dining areas.

Upstairs, the primary suite (which includes a dressing room and marble-lined bath) takes over the entire second floor, while the third and fourth levels have an additional three bedrooms and two baths. The best of all might be the rooftop, however, which features a 40-foot-long terrace garden equipped with a cocktail bar and kitchenette gazebo.

Other amenities include a steam room, cinema, fitness room, ground-level garden, and elevator that serves all five levels.

The home is listed with Beauchamp Estates for $29.8 million. See more photos below.
