Sophie Dickens, assistant director in West End agency at Drivers Jonas Deloitte, said: “This substantial Grade II Listed Georgian property provides a rare opportunity to upgrade one of London’s most historic buildings to a single residential dwelling. The property was most recently used as offices and has magnificent views overlooking St James’s Park and views from the upper floors towards Horse Guards Parade. This freehold sale is the first since the property was built and will no doubt provide a very grand London home.”
