A rare opportunity to purchase a Grade II Listed Freehold house overlooking Mount Street Gardens.
This palatial blue-plaque townhouse on South Street W1 is for sale for the first time in twenty years, the seven-storey 6,477 sq. Ft townhouse overlooking Mount Street Gardens was once the home of Lord Ashfield, the celebrated First Chairman of London Transport and founder of London Underground.
This classically elegant Grade II Listed freehold house was built by J.J Stevenson, master of the Queen Anne revival style, between 1896 and 1898, and retains many of its original features. Located on one of Mayfair's most architecturally beautiful streets, it provides an impressive family home with its six sumptuous bedrooms and a lavish space for entertaining with ceiling heights of 3.5m in the formal
reception rooms. Its two rear balconies offer magnificent views over Mount Street Gardens, which pre-date the house by nine years and house a variety of exotic plants including a Canary Island date palm and three dawn redwoods from China.
South Street lies close to the exclusive boutiques of Mount Street, Hyde Park and the West End, and forms a terrace of original design with no parallel in Mayfair with its mix of Gothic, Francois Premier, Jacobean and Queen Anne' sources.
