Belgravia apartment for sale for £27.5 million in spite of being a 1980s timewarp; the Sloaney home forms part of a building at one-time home the residence of one half of Gilbert and Sullivan
A penthouse on the “favoured northern side” of Belgravia’s Eaton Square is on sale for £27.5 million ($36.6 million, €31 million or درهم134.5 million) in spite of not been refurbished or updated since the 1980s.
Part of a building that was the London home of Sir William Gilbert (1836 – 1911) – one half of the Victorian theatrical partnership Gilbert and Sullivan – from 1907 until his death, 90 Eaton Square now spans four buildings and is some 117-foot wide. Its penthouse sits on the fourth floor and extends to some 5,570 square foot.
Featuring 3 reception rooms, a study, 5 bedroom suites, a wine cellar, a terrace and 2 balconies, the vast property is described as having “unusually large picture windows at the front to take advantage of the superior southerly aspect, and a low front parapet wall, allowing superb views of the expansive Eaton Square communal gardens.” Images shown in a sales brochure for it show not only some rather serious works of modern art, but also 1980s ‘Sloane Ranger essentials’ including shagpile rugs, marble bathrooms and chrome-steel cantilever dining chairs.
Previously offered for £30 million ($39.9 million, €33.8 million or درهم146.6 million) by agents Savills, the penthouse at 90 Eaton Square is now currently being marketed by Strutt & Parker. It comes with a surprisingly long lease that expires in 2256.
The space is superb but the decoration is terrible. It will NEVER sell for such a silly sum in this post-Brexit world.
Its a better buy post Brexit if its a buyer from overseas
Even worse than the choice yday!!!!!!!!!!!!! Insanity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mammoth wrecking ball urgently requried……………. Who’d want to live in dirty polluted place like this??????????? Whoeever buys will have been on the Castlemaine XXXX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This could be made into a truly amazing home but I don’t think it is worth £27,500,000 in spite of having a rare thing for Eaton Square, a long lease. Would be great to know what it eventually sells for but I suspect that information will be hidden by some offshore entity.
