Queen Anne's Gate
This is a unique opportunity to acquire two unmodernised houses, in this sought-after location. Queen Anne’s Gate is one of the most architecturally striking streets in London with properties dating from the early 1700s.
Running parallel with Birdcage Walk and adjoining St James’s Park, London’s most historic monuments, such as Horse Guards Parade and Buckingham Palace, are within just a few minutes’ walk.
The central location of St James’s Park means that these properties have excellent transportation links across London and further afield and to the international airports. The nearest underground stations are St James’s Park and Westminster, both within walking distance.
22 and 22a Queen Anne’s Gate are two Grade I Listed, Georgian period buildings providing opportunities for refurbishment and development. Available as a whole or individually, 22 and 22a Queen Anne’s Gate comprises approximately 16,580 sqft in total.
Built between 1775 – 1778, 22 and 22a form part of a group of seven terraced houses. Built of brown brick, with the ground floors stuccoed and a slate mansard roof, the properties have semi-circular arched doorways with panelled doors and patterned fanlights. The interiors of the property are of note because of the dramatic wall paintings in the main reception rooms which some sources attribute to the artist, Angelica Kauffmann.
The properties were previously listed for office use as one building, but have since been converted into two separate residential houses, with relevant planning permissions and listed building consents. Further planning and listed building consents have been obtained for a comprehensive refurbishment of each property, including creation of lifts serving each property, substantial change in layouts and addition to further terraces to the upper floor and the roof.
The plans have been approved by City of Westminster Council.
