An Eaton Mess

Eaton Square apartment for sale for £22.5 million in spite of needing complete renovation; it is listed at a price 25% cheaper than it was five years earlier in identical condition

80 Eaton Square in Belgravia is an address where two well-known names have both lived (albeit it very briefly). Ex-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (1925 – 2013) “temporarily” resided in a “Greek shipowner’s flat” there after leaving office whilst the American financier and philanthropist George Peabody (1795 – 1869) stayed and died in the home of the Anglo-American fur merchant Sir Curtis Lampson (1806 – 1885).

 

Grade II* listed and featuring a Greater London Council blue plaque commemorating Peabody, the stucco fronted building on the square’s northern terrace featured in The Steeple Times in September 2015. At that time, part of its ground and basement floors were placed for sale for the not too shabby sum of £30 million ($37 million, €33.4 million or درهم135.9 million) in spite of being a “complete wreck.”

 

Now, five years later and most surprisingly in no better condition, the very same apartment has been relisted for just £22.5 million ($27.8 million, €25 million or درهم102 million) through agents Chestertons.

 

Extending in total to 6,173 square foot, the duplex was previously promoted with a fancy design scheme by David Collins Studio but now is simply listed as a “5 bedroom maisonette” with “potential to create one of the finest homes in Eaton Square.” It comes with a private garden to the rear and access to the communal spaces of the square also.

Eaton Square’s ‘Famous Faces’

Considered one of the best addresses in London and built for and still mostly owned by the Grosvenor family, Eaton Square features six adjoining, tree-planted gardens dissected by a four lane highway between Victoria and Sloane Square.

 

Amongst the well-known people who have variously lived in the square are:

 

No. 1 – Lord Boothby, paedophile and politician.

No. 7 – Sir Sean Connery, actor.

No. 7a – Lily Safra, philanthropist.

No. 11 – Lord Lloyd-Webber, composer, and separately Dame Joan Collins, actress.

No. 12 – Sir Osbert Lancaster, cartoonist.

No. 22 – Lord Lucan, aristocrat who disappeared, and later Sir Roger Moore, actor.

No. 29 – Sir Terence Rattigan, playwright.

No. 37 – Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister and prior to him Joachim von Ribbentrop, Nazi politician.

No. 54 – Vivien Leigh, actress and Laurence Olivier, actor.

No. 65a – Scene of the arrest of John Daly, train robber.

No. 68 – Sir Barry Gibb, musician.

No. 75 – Sir Rex Harrison, actor.

No. 76 – The Aga Khan, royal.

No. 82 – Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands.

No. 90 – Sir William Gilbert, one half of Gilbert & Sullivan.

No. 93 – Stanley Baldwin, Prime Minister.
