Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A wonderful and historic town house within this special Georgian enclave of Westminster


This is a tremendously historic house dating to the 1720s and with a rich history of former residents ranging from military men to 'book binders', legal men to 'Charwomen' and becoming more notable with Aristocrats and Theatre Impresarios in the early 1900's. A house that can boast guests that range from Queen Alexandra to Marilyn Monroe, there is an unquestionable sense of character and charm that immerses every room.

Grade II* listed, this freehold house is arranged over five floors, retaining a beautiful first floor drawing room, charming dining room and study to the ground floor, and comprising three bedrooms and three bathrooms. An excellent kitchen, with an Aga, and breakfast room with further gas fired 'wood burning' stove is located at the lower ground floor level from where there is also access to the private garden provides a tranquil and secluded further entertaining space.

This is a house that will appeal to any buyer who revels in the history of this period and location; the accommodation provides comfortably for use as a permanent or regular home, or pied a Terre and it is a wonderful location from which to enjoy the amenities and iconic landmarks of the area.


Lord North Street is located between Smith Square and Great Peter Street, and within the renowed 'division bell' area stipulated by Parliament. A location steeped in history and widely regarded for its exquisitely preserved examples of 18th Century architecture. It is a tranquil and attractive environment, and enhanced by the looming presence of St John's at Smith Square, and of course the nearby Palace of Westminster.

Westminster and Victoria have seen significant redevelopment in recent years: vast expansion and improvement of retail and residential offerings have seen the area re-join the traditional trophy enclaves that are recognised as ‘Prime Central London’.

A destination and ‘lifestyle hub’ boasting Michelin star restaurants from Michel Roux Jnr, Tom Kerridge and Andrew Wong; fashion houses from Mulberry and Tom Ford; a Curzon Cinema; Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Other Palace’ theatre and studio; St John’s Concert Hall at Smith Square; the Tate Britain Gallery, and all in addition to the offerings in St James’s, the West End and nearby Mayfair, Belgravia and Knightsbridge.

Local transport connections include St James’s Park and Westminster underground stations providing District and Circle Line and Jubilee Line access. Victoria Station is also close, with underground connections and mainline rail network services including the Gatwick Express, and of course the river boat service from Westminster and Tate Britain piers.

Square Footage: 2,139 sq ft
