In the prestigious Mayfair district of London, an exceptional opportunity presents itself with the sale of a luxury apartment spanning 485 sqm, offering a rich history and sumptuous features. Currently available for purchase with The Family Office at UK Sotheby's International Realty, this exclusive residence is nestled within an iconic building that has witnessed the history of the famed Elgin Marbles, Rolls Royce quarters, and even British royalty.

The historical origins of this building add a layer of prestige to this property. Formerly the residence of the noble Bruce family in the 18th century, it later housed the famous Elgin Marbles, a collection of ancient Greek sculptures acquired by Thomas Bruce, the 7th Earl of Elgin. Later, it became the residence of members of the British royal family, including Prince William, Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh, and his wife, Princess Mary. This rich and fascinating history continues with the occupancy of the building by Prince George, Duke of Cambridge, and its subsequent transformation into an Art Nouveau-style residential building in the early 20th century.

Designed by the same architects as the famous Savoy Hotel, Thomas Edward Colcutt and Stanley Hamp, the current building was erected in 1904 to replace the original mansion. For over six decades, from 1906 to 1971, it served as the headquarters of Rolls Royce, with a showroom on the ground floor and apartments above used as reception space and private residences for company executives.

The apartment itself reflects this rich history through its design and features. Marble and parquet floors, 4.3-meter-high ceilings with impeccable moldings, original marble fireplaces, wood paneling, custom furniture, and elegant crystal chandeliers create an atmosphere of grandeur and timeless elegance.

The location of this residence is also exceptional. Located near some of Mayfair's most iconic and picturesque locations, such as Sloane Street, Bond Street, Knightsbridge, and Buckingham Palace, it offers easy access to everything this prestigious neighborhood has to offer.

In conclusion, this property at 149 Old Park Lane embodies the pinnacle of luxury and history in London.
