No. 50 Egerton Crescent is a Grade II listed stucco-fronted London townhouse once home to a member of the Queen’s family – and it’s now on the market for the first time in 50 years.

Situated on the Chelsea-Knightsbridge border, the property was rented by Princess Anne of Denmark, Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin, in 1958, for the purpose of introducing her then 16-year-old daughter, Lady Elizabeth Anson, into society.

Lady Elizabeth Anson is famous for being the Queen’s party planner for over five decades, and has also organised soirees for the Clintons and Mick Jagger.

Throughout its 170-year history, the royal house was also home to a draper, merchant, wine agent and solicitor, while Egerton Crescent has been the residence of many notable figures, including politicians, poets, theatrical directors and the late broadcaster, David Frost.
