Prime Resi: Bryanston Court Royal Love Nest

The classic mansion block apartment at Bryanston Court was where the pair embarked on their relationship in 1933, and there’s plenty of love letters to prove it.
King Edward VIII was crowned King in 1936, three years after the pair met. 11 months later, he abdicated the throne to marry Simpson after being advised that she wouldn’t be accepted as Queen by the British public as she was twice divorced. The pair married six months later and were created Duke and Duchess of Windsor by Edward’s brother, King George VI. Instead of “Her Highness”, Wallis was instead styled as “Her Grace”, a style normally reserved only for non-royal dukes and duchesses.
Now the 2,391 square foot second floor lateral has been refurbished to a top spec, it’s also being sold with a large separate lock up garage and a pair of studio apartments on the seventh floor, which could be ideal as either staff accommodation, a self-contained work space, or a secret meeting place.
Bertie Russell commented: “Bryanston Court is ideally located in the heart of central London. Bond Street, Mayfair and Knightsbridge and delightful Marylebone are all a short walk away, making it highly desirable for a professional looking for a London home or a growing family who want more space.”
