Property of the Week: Trafalgar Sq Pub Becomes Glam Turnkey Rental

Oh how we’ve missed the pub. While news that pubs can officially open on 4 July has been confirmed, will the experience be the same? If you’re concerned about social distancing, your best bet is just to move into one…

This gorgeous property on Warwick House Street, just moments from Trafalgar Square, was once the Two Chairmen public house.

First built in 1755 with records of a public house on site since 1827, the Grade II listed property has undergone extensive refurbishment to transform all six floors into a beautiful home.

The brown-brick property has retained its public-house front, so even if you can’t pop into your local as you used to, you can still experience a frisson of ‘oh go on then, just one’ as you step over your own threshold.

‘The refurbishment of a former public house into a family home is a fantastic opportunity, often providing a very central location,’ said Peter Wetherell, Chief Executive of Wetherell, which is marketing the property.

‘One Warwick House Street has been magnificently refurbished to provide luxury interior design and top-class amenities for residents to enjoy, including a home gym and sauna, which are enviable assets during lockdown.’

The property has 3,239 sq ft of living space over six floors, complete with a chic interior design scheme in blush pink and soft grey providing a convenient ‘turnkey’ property ready for immediate occupation.

The ground floor has a open-plan kitchen and dining room with a sleek kitchen island. Up the modern, sculptural staircase, the first floor features two reception rooms separated by glass pocket-doors, while the master bedroom occupies the second floor, with an en suite bathroom and dressing room.

On the third floor there are two further guest bedrooms, one of which is en suite with a balcony looking onto Warwick House Street, and the fourth floor has an open-plan room that could be used as a fourth bedroom or home office, complete with a private roof terrace.

And there’s more – the lower-ground floor has a home-gym and sauna – one thing you certainly won’t find in your local pub – as well as a studio with its own kitchen.

Sad to see another London pub disappear? Fortunately there’s another pub called the Two Chairman, frequented by politicians and journalists, located just a 10-minute walk away in Westminster.
