Buy and complete on a one-bedroom flat before the end of next month and you get £26,000 worth of furnishings. That’s the deal at Great Minster House, pictured, a new development close to the Houses of Parliament where flats cost from £885,000. Can this be a sign of an ailing market in Westminster village? Developer Barratt insists that’s not the case. 

The firm says the deal is simply part of its routine end-of-financial-year drive to boost sales. Included in the interior design package are a bespoke sofa and armchair, wenge dining table and chairs, a bronze and glass TV unit, satin weave curtains and an — anonymous — piece of abstract art.

The building, opposite the Home Office, echoes the area’s Edwardian mansion blocks with parquet floors and high ceilings. There is also 24-hour porterage. Show apartments are open for viewing. Call 0844 811 4334.

Nearby Westminster Quarter, in Great Peter Street, has 91 flats grouped around a landscaped courtyard. Crisp architecture features floor-to-ceiling windows and incorporates communal roof gardens. Some of the apartments have a view of Big Ben and there is underground parking, a gym and concierge. 

Prices start at £990,000. Call JLL  on 020 3053 0743.
