The former Slovenian Embassy in Westminster has come up for sale, complete with planning for a resi rejig.
Built between 1899-1900 to a design by by F. Adams Smith, the sizeable Grade II listed red-brick on Little College Street has been employed as Slovenia’s London base since 1992, a year after the country declared independence from Yugoslavia.
Planning permission was granted last month for a change of use to a single family dwelling and a grand five-storey residence with four receptions and four bathrooms is envisaged.
There’s no sign of a forwarding address for the Embassy and the flags are still up, but it certainly looks vacant inside; the guide price is £5m, which works out at a rate of £1,139 per square foot.
Nestled in the Abbey Precinct, next to the Abbey Gardens and close to Westminster School, Little College Street is described by agents Hathaways as “at the heart of Royal and Political Westminster”.
