This unique building in Eaton Square has a lease of 999 years from Christmas 1930. This lease structure is a unique opportunity on the Square where most leases only run up to 120 years or 40 years.
The building is grade 11* listed and was the first part of Eaton Square constructed from 1827 by Thomas Cubit with a south facing view over Eaton Square.
The property presently measures 8362 square feet and is divided into 3 separate duplex apartments owned by three separate parties (flat 1 2526 sq ft; flat 2 2277 sq ft; flat 3 2550 sq ft); communal area 721.6 sq ft; vaults 287.4 sq ft). The upper apartment is occupied and is presented in reasonable decorative order; the middle flat is occupied and requires refurbishment; the ground floor apartment requires a complete refurbishment.
The whole building is offered at a guide price of £25m.
The ground and first floor apartments have spectacular high ceilings within the major reception rooms. The top floor apartment has unusally high ceilings for Eaton Square. The building is serviced by a lift.
The front of the building is distinguished from its neighbours by classic Corinthian Columns extending to a third-floor parapet. Internal period features such as fire places, cornice, panelling and banister rails are still intact
Eaton Square is Londons most prestigious address and in 2016 was nominated Londons most expensive place to live. The six adjoining, tree-planted, central gardens of Eaton Square are Grade II listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
The ground and lower floor duplex has a private courtyard garden. The first floor duplex has balconies to the front and back.
