Whether or not you’re a Margaret Thatcher fan, owning her house will be like owning a piece of history.
The former London home of Britain’s only female prime minister is on the market for a gobsmacking £30m.
The six-bedroom Grade II listed house in Belgravia comes with a bomb-proof door and the original doorstep house number installed by Baroness Thatcher.
Thatcher moved into 73 Chester Square in Belgravia in 1991 and the property was owned by her for 22 years until her death. Thatcher spent her last days in London’s Ritz hotel after the effects of bladder surgery made it difficult for her to manage stairs of her Belgravia townhouse.
After she died, the property was bought by Leconfield Property Group who refurbished the home while keeping some of the original features.
Apart from the six bedrooms, the home comes with its own lift, a wine cellar that can stock 500 bottles, a private garage and a ‘mews house’.
Other features include an entertainment space with a media room, bar, and a gym.
The property is being marketed by Savills. Richard Gutteridge, head of Savills’ Sloane Street office, said: “Such an eminent and rare property, in terms of location, renovation and history, no 73 will have a truly widespread appeal to any buyer at this level of the market looking for an exceptional London home. If only the walls could talk, one could almost imagine Ronald Reagan and other heads of state sitting with Baroness Thatcher in her dining room.”
