An exquisite Grade II listed Arts and Crafts period house overlooking Birdcage Walk and the Royal Park.

Old Queen Street is in the heart of the royal and political establishment. Surrounded by Mayfair, Knightsbridge and Belgravia, St. James's Park is an altogether more discreet part of the capital and yet has housed some of its most eminent residents throughout the years.

Built in 1909 by renowned Scottish architect Francis William Troup for Henry Gage Spicer of Spicer's paper merchant, the house has been carefully and tastefully upgraded by the current owners to enhance the magnificent architectural details of the period whilst equally offering completely up-to-date modern living.

The Arts and Crafts movement started in Great Britain in the 1880's and was seen as a return to quality craftsmanship and sensitive design, both of which feature prominently throughout the house; from the
understated front façade on Old Queen Street through to the octagonal entrance hall, vaulted ceilings of the reception hall and leaded windows of the light well. The fireplaces throughout the house are grand and with great detail, including the fleur-de-lis motifs inside; the particularly special example being found in the dining room. The door plates and weather vane also feature the initials of Spicer and his wife.

The garden, which in common with all properties on Old Queen Street that back onto the park, is held on a licence from the Royal Parks Authority. The garden is shared with two others and the current licence fee is £760.10 + VAT per annum.


Old Queen Street is positioned within incredibly easy reach of the theatres, restaurants and shops of the West End. The house backs onto the 57 acre Grade I listed St. James's Park which is one of London's 8 Royal Parks. This space includes The Mall and Horse Guards Parade and is surrounded by architecturally stunning and historic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and Whitehall. The impressive lake at the centre of the park offers an oasis of nature and peace. A short distance across the park are St. James's and Mayfair. The Palace of Westminster and Parliament Square are equally close as is Westminster Abbey and Westminster School.

Nearby transport links include St. James's Park Underground Station (Circle and District lines) 0.2 miles, Westminster Underground Station (Circle, District and Jubilee lines) 0.3 miles and London Victoria Station (Gatwick Express, Southeastern and Southern services) 0.5 miles (all distances are approximate).
