Sold last for £3 million in December 2003 (the equivalent of £4.4 million, $5.5 million, €5.2 million or درهم20.1 million today), the 2,230 square foot flat offered is held on a lease with 54 years remaining. This could be extended to 144 years by separate negotiation and presently the space is arranged to provide a double height entrance hallway, a large drawing room with a 12’8” ceiling height and access to a balcony, a dining room, a small kitchen, a study, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a utility room and a cloakroom.

 

A confidante of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother and the maternal grandmother of Diana, Princess of Wales, Lady Fermoy gave up her career as a pianist on marriage and became an Extra Woman of the Bedchamber in 1956. Though she is said to have engineered the union between her granddaughter and the Prince of Wales, when asked she always remarked: “You can say that if you like – but it simply wouldn’t be true”.

 

Lady Fermoy died at 36 Eaton Square on 6th July 1993, aged 84.

  1. A perfect bachelor pad or home for a couple by the look of it. They’re only using one of the bedrooms as a bedroom. Great for entertaining and a good location.

  2. Very small and very expensive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No thanks!!!!!!!!!!! Send in the wrecking ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugly, ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. The decoration is very stylish and I would leave it just as it is. Extending the lease might be a bit expensive but I assume it would be worthwhile.
