Regarded the choice accommodation for some of the world’s most powerful individuals, the Mayfair building on 47 Grosvenor Square, London, was once home to Winston Churchill’s wartime home secretary and chairman of the Royal Opera House, Sir John Anderson before it was acquired by the Onassis family, who are known for amassing the world’s largest privately owned shipping fleet.

The £18.6M Mayfair Apartment in London, Now Belongs To a Saudi Billionaire Heiress

To the inhabitants of 47 Grosvenor Square, ‘wealthy’ is a humble understatement of their status. Purchased through a deal set up in under 24 -hours, the £18.6 million apartment now belongs to the student-daughter of one of the Middle East’s wealthiest businessmen.

The transaction which has set a world record for the most expensive student accommodation ever, aligns with the new post-pandemic consumer trend of purchasing houses, full-floor apartments, and penthouses where buyers can carefully control access and do not have to share access to their homes with neighbours.

Worth every dime, this palatial apartment offers uninterrupted panoramic views of Grosvenor Square, with five bedrooms, a 60ft balcony and south-facing terrace, library, three grand reception rooms and large family kitchen.
