The year 2001 was a good year for residential Mayfair with Wetherell bringing to the market various buildings that resulted in nearly 60 new homes sold on long leases.
A £5.5m development of nine flats in Bolton Street, off Curzon Street and close to the Mirabelle sold out very quickly due to its modern style and high specification of finish. This was reflected at the value achieved at £735 per square foot.
Mayfair is now seeing a standard of development comparable to the other prime areas of central London, with developers now offering what the market wants! This has been reflected in values rising considerably.
At the end of last year Wetherell and Knight Frank launched Mayfair’s finest development of apartments in Upper Brook Street, located just up from Le Gavroche restaurant. Three out of the four apartments in the launch of the first stage are either sold or under offer at £1,000 per square foot, showing that quality always sells.
The house market has also been quite active with end of year sales on two freehold houses at around £2.5M each and both with garaging.


Soon to be finished are two houses in Culross Street, off Park Lane, each with garaging, lift, air conditioning and garden. Each house is available at £2.95M for the 99 year lease.


Wetherell are also marketing for Grosvenor a “hidden house” off Upper Brook Street, requiring modernisation at £2M, with access to private gardens.

Upper Brook Street
Upper Brook Street, Mayfair’s finest development for finish and value at £1,000 p.s.f.


Wetherell see an active year ahead for 2002. Mayfair is still cheaper than Belgravia so buy now while stocks last! The market is on the move again!
Vendor’s are realistic, buyers are now actively back in the market after the lull of the last quarter of 2001, interest rates are low and at the time of writing the Stock Market is stable!

Try before you buy

The rental market has been extremely busy since the tragic events of September 11th with some people obviously more cautious and opting for a years rent instead of an outright purchase. A number of our clients have also taken the decision to offer their properties as “Available“ for rent or purchase, giving the tenant the opportunity to “try before they buy“!
January is seasonally a time when new stock comes available with previous tenants checking out over the


Christmas period. Wetherell Lettings, have two superb flats for rental in one of Mount Street’s most prestigious terracotta residential blocks.
The three bedroom flat consists of a good-sized reception with a kitchen and two bathrooms and is offered at £700 per week. The two bedroom flat consists of reception room, kitchen and bathroom at £550 per week.
Both flats are fully furnished, very comfortable and ideally located. They have the added and unusual advantage of having a daily cleaning service included in the price.
