A luxury property in London’s Admiralty Arch is situated on The Mall, leading from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace. It’s expected to sell for £150.000.000 and win the title of London’s most expensive apartment which currently belongs to a One Hyde Park penthouse that was sold for £140.000.000 two years ago. The building has a rich history behind it, since it’s been home to many important figures over the years, including Winston Churchill and Ian Fleming. It’s also served as a venue for many notable events, such as coronations, royal weddings, grand state occasions and presidential visits.
The flat boasts 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms and comes with six-metre high ceilings, antique fittings, extravagant cornicing, original fireplaces, your own lift, a private entrance, a 24-hour concierge service, an off-road valet parking and a lifetime membership in a private club.
The building is currently owned by Spanish developer Rafael Serrano, who is planning to turn the site into a luxury hotel, after buying a 250-year lease from the Government in 2012.
“We have created a dream team of architects and artisans to care for this historic building which has been part of the fabric of British royalty, politics, history and culture since the 1900s. Now it is entering a new, exciting phase as we transform the building into the finest hotel and residences in London,” said Mr. Serrano.
