A penthouse in Mayfair, just off Park Lane, is the home for a man about town. And this stylish penthouse in Green Street is but a gentle stroll to Savile Row, within easy reach of all the galleries and antique shops of the area, and has private gardens at the back should the expanse of Hyde Park, just across Park Lane, pall. Mayfair remains one of London’s most desirable and elegant manors, a ‘village’ that contains all the sophisticated aspects of London life. Famous residents have included Beau Brummell, Winston Churchill, composer Handel, next door to Jimi Hendrix (though not at the same time), and the Queen was born here.

This Green Street penthouse is situated in an elegant period building, and over the top three floors provides an imposing, spacious home, with three bedrooms, two receptions and a dining room, mixing classic and modern aspects. Its star feature is the open plan room that takes up the top floor, and which opens onto a large roof terrace looking out over Mayfair. From Wetherell, price £7,500,000.
