Most expensive apartment this year in Mayfair Sells. 2nd August 2021

Overseas buyers face significantly larger tax bills as of tomorrow, but we hear one Middle Eastern HNWI has managed to tie-up a super-prime deal in Mayfair in the nick of time.A 4,050 square foot lateral on Grosvenor Square has been tucked away in speedy fashion after coming up for sale at £14.25m. The six-bed, five-bath and three-reception residence, housed in a grand 18th century portered building on the square’s southern flank, went though without reaching the open market.Silvina Paz and Silvia Bruttini of Address Property collaborated with Waleed Mohammed of Knightsbridge-based agency Merchants Row on the transaction, which involved a five-day exclusivity period and completed today.The apartment has high ceilings throughout and a total of 26 windows; it also came with a separate studio apartment.“It’s our job as agents to find the best for our buyers”, said Mohammed. “Mayfair is a market where you must be quick and move with confidence when the right opportunity presents itself.”
