Four luxury apartments at Gatti House, The Strand have generated £16.5 million of sales since they went on the market earlier this year. Priced between £2.95 million and £5.95 million, here’s why these central London properties have sold for record prices

Designed by architect Spencer Chadwick, Gatti Housewas built in 1886-87 and originally served as the Adelphi Theatre’s restaurant. It was a favourite hangout for celebrities of the day, including Dame Ellen Terry, Oscar Wilde and Noel Coward, but is now home to four luxury apartments that have sold for millions.

In 2010, the building was acquired by Enstar Capital. After four years of restoration by Peek Architecture & Design and Barlow & Barlow Design, the apartments launched in May 2015 and reached figures above average in the Covent Garden area. The penthouse, sold by Beauchamp Estates in July for close to asking price, achieved approximately £2,260/sq ft. whilst the first floor apartment achieved approximately £2,100/sq ft. 

So, what are the selling points? Aside from the prime location and exciting history, these homes come with another unique (and very handy) perk. Their ‘pizza lifts’ can deliver food from the adjacent Nell Gwynne Tavern directly into the apartments. Of course, the interior design – inspired by the first class dining rooms of the Titanic and Olympic Ocean Liners – is stunning too.

Take a tour around the three record-breaking apartments and the penthouse below.
