Located less than 300m from Buckingham Palace, in the Birdcage Walk Conservation Area, this substantial home has been subject to the most exacting and detailed refurbishment by the current owners and is now available as a chain free purchase.
This stunning property, encompassing some 3,100 sq ft of well-planned accommodation has been extensively refurbished and beautifully designed to create the perfect London home.
Superior fixtures and fittings throughout include Chesney's marble fireplaces, oak flooring, plush carpets, quality sanitary ware and stone surfaces.
The design has been carefully considered with the property having a natural flow. As you enter from Wilfred Street the ground floor is arranged with a formal reception, a formal dining room and drawing room which leads to a private terrace.
The lower ground floor which is incredibly bright comprises an expansive open plan kitchen/dining area, utility room, powder room and two further reception rooms, as well as street access to Catherine Place.
The upper floors to the property have been designed with space and comfort in mind. The master suite is spread across the first floor, with a large dressing room and ensuite bathroom. One of the second-floor bedrooms has an additional study area.
The third floor, which features access to the roof terrace, has its own kitchen and bathroom, and can be used as a self-contained area for a live-in nanny or older child who desires space of their own.
The address 8 Wilfred Street is stooped in history. The house stands on the site of Tart Hall, the London home of William Howard, and 1st Viscount Stafford. In the mid 1970s the property was transformed into offices and was the headquarters for the Centre for Policy Studies (CPS), a conservative think tank with Margaret Thatcher MP as the president.
The property is majority freehold and is arranged over five floors of 8 Wilfred Street and the lower ground floor of 48 Catherine Place which is held as a virtual freehold on a 999-year lease from March 2000 with a ground rent of £150 per annum.
Over the past 15 years this part of Westminster has seen significant improvement and is now home to many fabulous restaurants, bars, shops, gyms, a Curzon cinema and various cultural attractions. The opening of Nova in 2017 led to over 20 new establishments opening their doors to local residents offering a number of different culinary experiences and The Ivy Victoria opened last year.
Transport connections from the property are unrivalled. Both Victoria (mainline and underground stations) and St Jamess Park stations are just a few minutes walk away.
The world-renowned shopping around Oxford Circus, Regent Street and Bond Street are just minutes away via the Victoria Line and the Square Mile is easily accessible via the District Line, Mansion House in just nine minutes from St Jamess Park.
In addition, the house is situated minutes from some of the most beautiful parks in London: St Jamess Park, Green Park and Hyde Park.
This property is being offered chain free for immediate occupation.
