Exciting new schemes within a short walk of the Palace of Westminster include Abell & Cleland, the redevelopment of Abell House and Cleland House. The Berkeley Homes scheme, where prices for a two-bedroom apartment start from £1.8 million, is set in landscaped gardens between Millbank Tower and the Palace of Westminster, on the corner of John Islip Street and Page Street. It is surrounded by restaurants and pubs that are the scene of daily political intrigue.
There is a residents’ gym, swimming pool, sauna and steam room, a residents’ business suite, 24-hour concierge services, and underground parking is available. Elsewhere in Westminster, Ashley Gardens, Morpeth Mansions and Carlisle Place are similarly grand, red-brick mansion blocks close to Victoria station.
They offer spacious apartments packed with period features, while attractive, ex-local authority mansion blocks with improved communal areas are making popular rental investments.
