Market Update May / June 2019
Last week I sent out to all our HOT applicants our latest selection of property in and around Mayfair that focused on outside space and views.
My theme was VISION – “a potent cocktail of hindsight mixed with insight and a splash of foresight”.
We had such a good response that I have now made it into one of our monthly reports and have pleasure in attaching herewith as a PDF plus a link to our Wetherell website.
• We detail three new developments which have views and large terraces.
• We highlight the “whisper market” – a number of quietly on the market premium properties.
• We announce a number of sales and lettings new to market.
• We detail in “Stop Press” – some price reductions.
I concluded with “Different people have different views – but one of these properties could be yours”.
One property that was not highlighted – see link below – was a top floor 3 bedroom apartment with roof terrace overlooking “The Secret Gardens” of Mayfair.
Warburton House is a rare opportunity to purchase an exquisite lateral apartment located in a historic former military hospital which has direct access to one of Mayfair’s secret gardens.
This fourth floor (top) apartment is located in a grand neo-Georgian mansion transformed to provide seven luxury apartments and has a large roof terrace plus direct access onto the secret garden of Green Street from the building’s ground floor.
Only a few homes have access to the gardens, making this a rare purchase opportunity.
From 1917 to 1919, the mansion served as a military hospital named The Garland Home, a section of Queen Alexandra’s Military Hospital in Millbank, with 36 beds for sick and wounded officers in the Great War. Following 1919, the mansion was sold to and occupied by Sir Eric Hambro KBE, a wealthy merchant banker and Conservative politician. In 1939 Norfolk Street was officially renamed Dunraven Street after the 4th Earl of Dunraven. The mansion was then used as office space, before undergoing a dramatic transformation back to residential use at the start of the 21st century.
Now, Warburton House offers a collection of seven luxury apartments each with views onto and exclusive access into the secret garden of Green Street.
The Green Street garden was created by the Grosvenor Estate in the early 20th century and offers peaceful landscaping with a lily pond, ducks and deckchairs.
