It has been touted as Britain’s most expensive demolition project. A £35m mews home in Mayfair could fetch up to £65m if it gets knocked down and rebuilt.
The refurbished two-storey mews house on Mount Row can be converted into a 16,000 sq ft home with a 2,000 sq ft master bedroom suite, a 40ft private garden leading to a guest villa, a dining room seating 26 and a library.
According to a report in the Sunday Times, the home can be fit with a swimming pool, cinema, wine cellar and even a bowling alley.
Peter Wetherell, managing director of Wetherell estate agency, which is selling the freehold property, told the Sunday Times: “There are 13 houses in central London openly on the market for more than £30m.
“This is the only tear-down on the list and is the most expensive example ever of a house that has been bought deliberately for knocking down and redeveloping.”
