Grade I listed Robert Adam mansions don’t come up for sale very often. Indeed, in eleven years’ working at the top end of the market in central London, Knight Frank’s Christian Lock-Necrews tells us No.3 Fitzroy Square is the first he’s dealt with.
The position in the middle of the favoured east terrace – part of the original square laid out by the great architect in the 1790s – means classic Portland stone frontage, a westerly aspect across the gardens, with an adjoining mews house to the rear. Best-in-class stuff.
Spanning a monumental 10,403 square feet, the five-storey mansion has everything the Adam aficionado would be looking for and more, with 4m+ ceilings on the first floor and a vaulted full-height cantilevered stone staircase with iron balusters running – unusually – all the way to second floor level.
There’s also planning in place to replace the existing mews house with a 21st century interpretation, delivering a pool, some more living space, plus a passenger lift in the main house from basement to second floor.
Unsurprisingly, there’s already been plenty of interest, says Lock-Necrews, including from some “significant and well-known figures”.
