A breath of fresh air
As summer approaches we are increasingly asked for properties with some outside space, be it a balcony, terrace or garden.
Mayfair’s largest area of greenery is Grosvenor Square, London’s second largest garden square after Lincoln’s Inn Fields and covers over 8 acres. Properties with private outside space are rare due to the architecture of Mayfair. Flats with outside space are normally found at the top of the building (penthouses with terraces) or the lower ground floors (patio gardens). Townhouses invariably were not built with gardens in mind, although some houses can be found where some outside space has been created by clever design.
However, Mayfair does have secret, hidden gardens, not visible from the street.
Another secret garden lies behind Culross Street. Whilst not having access to the gardens, Wetherell are marketing for sale a contemporary house, finished by Michael Reeves (Interior Designer of the Year). In addition to a roof deck, the house features a spectacular atrium where the glazed roof panels can be programmed to open thermostatically creating a courtyard with a Mediterranean feel. Price £2.95m.
In Mayfair Village an impeccably presented mews maisonette is for sale at £595,000. In addition to the 34′ west facing reception room is a secluded roof terrace.
As with properties for sale, rental properties with outside space can command a premium, as can properties which overlook squares or gardens. Despite our short summers, tenants regard such space as an extra room.
Wetherell currently have on their books a duplex penthouse with three interconnecting reception rooms, all having access to a roof terrace overlooking Berkeley Square and the rooftops of Mayfair. Available from July for a long let at £5,000 per week. On a smaller scale, available immediately in Mount Street is a two bedroom flat with a patio garden for a long let at £550 per week.
