Currently featuring a large reception room, a dining kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a laundry on the building’s fourth floor, a tower with domed reception space from the sixth to the seventh floors and a private roof terrace on its fifth floor, the apartment comes with planning permission for internal rearrangement.

 

Held on a leasehold basis expiring 2142 and subject to a service charge of £20,550 per annum ($26,187, €23,391 or درهم96,211 per annum) according to agents JLL, a buyer will also have to pay a one-off charge of £12,054 ($15,360, €13,720 or درهم56,434) towards the cost of refurbishing the portered building’s lift.

  1. Living on the most polluted road in Britain has no appeal to me. It’s not quite as bad as it is up by Harrods and One Hyde Park but this is the arterial route to the M4 motorway and its filthy dirty with diesel fumes. You would not want to sit on that roof terrace would you?

  2. Change it?????? Why???????? I like it as it is!!!!!!!!!!!! Sleek, clean and very James Bond!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where’s Blofeld????????????????????????? Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. As a property professional I must say that I am split on this one. It is indeed on a busy road but it is high enough up to avoid the petrol liquor and at £2375psf I see potential for uplift in value. It has a very weird layout and needs much work – but what would put me off is the low ceiling heights.

  4. Just curious – Does it come with garaging space nearby? Why have an 8 million quid home and nowhere to put the car?
