An immaculately-renovated, three-bedroom lateral apartment nestled in the heart of Mayfair, and spread over 2,055 sq. ft. across two heritage townhouses, is being brought to market by Wetherell for £6 million. The launch of this stylish home marks the beginning of the 2021 post-pandemic revival of luxury London as buyers seek homes with elegant entertaining spaces.
This first-floor property on Queen Street spans two five-storey historic gems of differing styles and eras, a real estate rarity. On the right is a stately Victorian masterpiece with a bright red brick facade, intricate brickwork and a prominent bay window in the reception room. Its adjoining white property is of Georgian design – elegant in its simplicity. A handsome partnership, both are the absolute pinnacle of Mayfair housing style and ideal for a buyer who relishes central London heritage architecture and loves to entertain.
Once inside, the flowing space gives no indication that the apartment once belonged to two different townhouses. Deep floor-to-ceiling sash windows fill the generously proportioned rooms with natural light. The sense of grandeur and space is heightened by the soaring ceilings while every corner has been maximised in this cleverly laid-out three-bedroom, three-bathroom home. An illuminating light well runs through the centre of the building with a lift directly to each apartment and a dedicated concierge on hand.
The boutique development comprises six apartments but this first floor home is the real prize with its bay window in the cavernous, open plan reception and dining room which surveys the one-way Queen Street. There are a further three grand sash windows in the dining area of the vast space which open onto a balcony behind wrought-iron railings.
Wetherell says that with the continued successful roll-out of the coronavirus vaccine, prospective buyers are looking forward to the easing of restrictions and a return to socialising. This impressive reception room is ideally designed for entertaining. Decorated to modern standards with a contemporary parquet flooring and stylish monochrome theme, it nods to the roaring ‘20s and the glamorous Art Deco era so closely associated with parties. Undoubtedly this room is the masterpiece of the property, with its undeviating and linear plaster mouldings and cornicing and period-style fireplace with a marble hearth. Double-width doors slide back to reveal a well-equipped kitchen, arranged in galley style, conveniently located off the dining area.
The main bedroom has two deep floor-to-ceiling windows, its own dressing room and a large en suite. There are two guest bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms. Wetherell highlights that one bedroom could be converted into a useful study with its large window for working from home. Luxurious deep pile carpets run throughout the bedroom suites.
Peter Wetherell, Founder and Chairman of Wetherell says: “After the First World War and the depression of the early 1920s central London bounced back and a renaissance of luxury and style followed. We saw it again after the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 with the exclusive residential enclaves of prime central London leading the world’s recovery. This Queen Street apartment is the utter representation of luxury for a buyer who wants to position themselves in the heart of cultural London ahead of the capital’s post-covid recovery.”
Queen Street connects Curzon Street and Charles Street. It is moments from some of the most iconic squares and parks in London, namely Berkeley Square, Grosvenor Square and Hyde Park. Queen Street runs into the fascinating Shepherd Market, where the very name of Mayfair originated. The small piazza, with winding urban lanes running off it, is full of eclectic bars, restaurants and Victorian pubs. Green Park tube station is the nearest station just a four-minute walk away on Piccadilly which is lined with London landmark hospitality venues and the world-famous Fortnum & Mason.
The first floor apartment at Queen Street is for sale for £6 million. Viewing is strictly by appointment, for further information please contact Wetherell on 020 7529 5566 or visit www.wetherell.co.uk
