Rare Emperors Gate freehold project asks £8.5m

An entire end-of-terrace that hasn’t been touched for decades has come up for sale on Knightsbridge’s exclusive Emperors Gate.

Currently packing a total of 5,675 square feet over six floors, the elegant 1870s freehold block was turned into 16 self-contained flats at some stage, all of which are now empty and in a rather sorry state. The building has been in the same hands for about 30 years.

There’s clearly lots of scope, subject to the planners getting on board, although you’d hope the stunning original staircase, cornicing, high skirting boards and original fireplaces stay where they are. There’s a couple of roof terraces and a classic full-width balcony at first floor level.
