FAMOUS FOLK AT HOME: Tom Ford’s homes in London, Paris, Los Angeles and Santa Fe

We think Tom Ford is the epitome of “the luscious man” so we did some digging and came across some photos of his former home at 26 Gilston Road, Chelsea, plus a couple from his Paris, Los Angeles and New Mexico properties…

The Chelsea House

The uber-chic, 3705sq ft, West London house was gutted and renovated to fashion-god-Ford specifications, which included a staircase of white alabaster, black polished glass, Makassar wood and stainless steel walls, and a floor in black marble.

Without even looking at the photos, you can imagine that Ford would have renovated the period property to his most exacting and sophisticated standards.

The original architectural details of the exterior were preserved, with the interiors all about sex, sensuality, sleekness and stainless steel. Try saying that 5 times fast!

When up for sale a few years later, the 4-reception room property was valued at £8.5m and according to the agents, Aylesford, nothing had been changed since Ford lived there.

The house also comprises two bedrooms (plus 1 other room which could be used as a bedroom) and 2.5 bathrooms.

Set back from the road, the 4-storey former Ford house is appropriately positioned behind a high wall and double gates (perhaps to prevent sycophantic Ford fans from popping in for a G&T on the terrace).

Located in the popular and exclusive Boltons Conservation Area in London SW10, the house is close to both Fulham Road and Old Brompton Road to enable some luscious shopping and dining within easy walk.

The Boltons is a smart enclave of just 30 large Victorian houses set around a beautiful garden square. It has long been one of the most envied and quiet A-list addresses in London.

One property, for example, received an £8m injection of fabulousness with an underground car park, indoor swimming pool and James Bond-style hydraulic “pavement” roof.

Residents of The Boltons include Lord and Lady Sainsbury, Sir Julian Ridsdale Lady Ridsdale (an Fleming’s original inspiration for Miss Moneypenny), a member of the Saudi royal family (who a house for himself and one for his harem of wives) and a bevy of super rich business folk and politicians.

Other current or former residents in the area include/d Yves Saint Laurent, Liz Hurley, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson, David Bowie and George Michael.

Michael’s 5-bedroom house in Gilston Road was previously owned by Chris Evans, and later on the market for £7.25m.

It’s not all divine, however, as actress Liz Hurley was mugged in 1994 in the neighbouring “Little Boltons” by a gang of knife-wielding female teenagers.

And in 1999, more knife-happy robbers broke into a house in The Boltons, attacked a female resident and stole £200K worth of jewellery.

Another time, the IRA tried to blow up the house belonging to former Northern Ireland minister Michael Alison.

The Paris apartment

We don’t know anything about the Paris apartment yet (but shall continue researching!) but do know that it was photographed for House and Garden January 1998 by Todd Eberle.

Los Angeles home

Tom Ford and longtime partner, now husband, Richard Buckley have resided in multiple international locales including a Richard Neutra-designed Bel Air, Los Angeles abode (next to Meg Ryan – see this article and photos from Hooked on Houses), and The Carlyle hotel in New York (apparently booking the same room for years).
