“Set” in London’s grandest apartment block offered for sale
Albany – never termed “The Albany” – used to be the London equivalent of New York’s “bachelor apartments”. Though “proprietors”, as they are known, of this “oasis off Piccadilly” can now also be women, children under 14 are still supposedly not allowed to live there and it’s also considered an offence to talk on the building’s ‘Rope Walk’.
Featuring 2 reception rooms, 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom and spread over two levels, a 1,170 square foot second and third floor “set” in the Grade I listed building has recently come up for sale. It is situated off Albany Courtyard, needs updating and is subject to a service charge of £7,516 per year ($9,238 or €8,835 or درهم33,920).
A 20-year lease is offered for £1.35 million ($1.66 million or €1.59 million or درهم6.09 million) through Strutt & Parker.
