Located above Mayfair’s most renowned barbershop, the penthouse of a luxury boutique development is available to let through Wetherell. Situated above Geo. F. Trumper, a historic gentleman’s barbershop operating since 1875, 9 Curzon Street offers contemporary living and is available to let for £1,850 per week.
Over the past 145 years, the Geo. F. Trumper barbershop has built a devoted following, offering barber services, premium grooming and haircare products, and bespoke fragrances. Known to Mayfair locals simply as Trumper’s and given legendary status in the James Bond novels, the barbershop is the go-to destination for local residents and the elite. Following extensive refurbishment, the trio of homes located above the barbershop at 9 Curzon Street now offer luxury rental apartments, ideal for a resident to enjoy the Mayfair lifestyle on their doorstep.
Trumper’s has changed little in the past century, offering customers an unrivalled experience including the traditional ‘cut throat’ razor shave. Founded by George Trumper, the barbershop has sophisticated mahogany panelling throughout, with shaving booths sealed off by luxe velvet curtains, and a wide-range of bespoke colognes and products in glass display cabinets.
Amongst elite clientele of the barbershop was author Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond. The barbershop’s discrete shaving booths were said to have been a favourite spot of Fleming whilst he worked as a naval intelligence officer for MI5 at offices further along Curzon Street; he was such a fan of Trumper’s he named their fragrance Eucris as James Bond’s favourite. Trumper’s remains one of the most sought-after barbershops in the capital, with the James Bond reference giving the shop international acclaim, and many customers remaining loyal for decades.
The six storey Georgian building on Curzon Street now offers a boutique collection of apartments above the barbershop. Available to let with Wetherell, the 9 Curzon Street penthouse is located over the fourth and fifth floors providing 1,356 sq. ft. of elegant living space, with direct lift access and a concierge service, available fully turnkey for residents to move in.
The penthouse’s fourth floor provides a large reception room with rich mahogany panelling that echoes Trumper’s barbershop below, with the original fireplace preserved and sash windows letting in copious natural light. The adjoining kitchen has integrated Miele appliances, with black gloss worktops and handleless white units for a sleek aesthetic. The kitchen has space for a four-seater dining table and opens onto a Juliet balcony with cast iron balustrade, with a study also on this floor.
The penthouse’s fifth floor offers a large Master suite, with an en suite bathroom with a waterfall shower, and bespoke fitted wardrobes for storage space. The guest bedroom also offers ample storage space, and there is a family bathroom with a bathtub.
The penthouse has stairs leading to a sixth floor private roof terrace overlooking Mayfair’s rooftops, large enough for al fresco dining or relaxing with friends. The penthouse has been renovated to the highest quality, with air conditioning throughout.
