If security is a priority when looking for a property, then you could be interested to hear that the “most protected private home in Britain” is now for sale. The Little White House located at 4 Blackburne’s Mews in Mayfair, is available for sale at an estimated £2,500,000 and located in a private gated mews complex adjacent to the American Embassy and within its protective perimeter.
Currently, the Little White House sits inside the American Embassy’s security cordon that includes identity card access, patrolling US marines, 24 hour British police presence, checkpoints, anti-tank blocks and CCTV security.
An incredible investment opportunity, in 2017 the US Embassy will relocate to Nine Elms, Battersea and the old embassy building will be transformed into an luxury 5* hotel and resort. The mews house will be in the vicinity of this fashionable and soon to be even more enviable district of London.
The property is known locally as the Little White House due to its white façade; grand 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue style entrance hall and sweeping staircase; and its proximity to and long-standing links with the adjacent American Embassy. The white house at 4 Blackburne’s Mews dates back to 1732; with major reconstruction undertaken in 1926-1928.
There is a ground floor formal dining room, with doors opening onto the communal garden, and a large family kitchen/breakfast room. The remainder of the accommodation provides four bedroom suites, each with fitted wardrobes and ensuite bath/shower rooms, guest cloakroom and utility/storage room.
