'The House' dates back to 1677 and after being extensively rebuilt in 1768 as an upmarket townhouse was once the prestigious residence of numerous aristocrats. It is now Grade-II listed.

The building has most recently been used as offices, but is now being sold with planning permission to create a residential dwelling and will offer 5,757sq ft of unique living space over five floors. 

Marketed through Cushman & Wakefield, the property is expected to fetch in excess of £7 million.


Cushman & Wakefield partner Toby Greville says: "With emerging planning legislation anticipated to restrict office-to-residential conversions in the near future, such opportunities are likely to become increasingly rare in Westminster."

With its prime position on the northern side of Soho Square and gardens, it is unlikely that the townhouse will be on the market for long despite the hefty price tag. Soho, a famously lively district, is fast becoming sanitised, with the sex-and-sleaze industry being pushed out to make way for plush hotels and upmarket restaurants and bars. 

Musicians and media types are moving out of cramped flats while bankers, business executives and the super wealthy are moving in to new showpiece homes with contemporary, light-filled interiors.

New Crossrail stations at nearby Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street are also giving home values in this West End hotspot a significant boost.
