Country houses for sale

For sale: in the heart of the City

Apartments are now for sale in one of the most exclusive and unusual buildings in the City ? 7 Lothbury. Facing the Bank of England, and next to St Margaret’s Church, the building was designed by George Somers Clarke and built in 1866 for the General Credit and Finance Company.

Then for many years it was the headquarters of the Speyer Brothers, before the Overseas Bankers’ Club took over the premises in the 1960s. The building eventually fell into disrepair, but now a complete restoration has provided a few people with the opportunity to purchase one of the flats for sale in this remarkable building.

The apartments are duplex and triplex apartments and a luxurious penthouse with roof terrace. Each has designed kitchen and bathrooms, bespoke hardwood joinery, air conditioning, Bose lifestyle audio system and lift access. The period features are distinctive and considered to be quite charming.

Charlie Markes from Marldon, who has developed the site, said: ‘Opportunities to purchase properties within the Square Mile are limited with no more than 8000 inhabitants living in the area. We were fortunate to restore and develop this wonderful example of Victorian Gothic architecture and update it for use in the 21st Century.

The apartments are on the market from £545,000. For further information, visit or contact Frank Harris on +44 (0)207 600 7000 or Savills on + 44 (0)207 472 5025.
