Luxury properties and London are like Siamese twins, inseparable.
The latest example of this is a £16m Mayfair pad which has been dubbed London’s largest luxury apartment.
The three-bedroom pad, which was a former Buick limousine showroom, has been converted into a flat with floor-to-ceiling heights of 11ft and a 82ft.
The property has a bit of history attached to it – it served as the European HQ of US car maker Buick from the 1920s to the 1950s.
Visitors to the Edwardian building included Prince of Wales and Wallis Simpson; Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent and English actress Gracie Fields.
The flat now boasts a drawing room which is 47ft by 25ft and a master bedroom suite which 21ft by 17ft. The master bedroom benefits from a private terrace, walk-in dressing room and full bathroom all finished in an elegant neutral palette. There are two further bedroom suites, both with ensuite bathrooms.
Other bells and whistles include a music room with a 22 ft. atelier window and a winter garden.
Wetherell’s chief executive Peter Wetherell said: “This magnificent lateral residence has the tallest ceilings and largest room dimensions of any new Mayfair apartment currently on the market.”
