The luxury Mayfair flat which inspired the 1963 ‘The Pink Panther’ film has been put up for sale for a cool £4.4 million.
Lady Norah Docker, one of Britain’s most notorious socialites, once lived here. She was involved in a series of scandals during the height of her fame. Celebrities such as Max Bygraves and Peter Sellars have also passed through these doors. The property is probably most famous for the jewellery theft which took place here in 1948. Over £52,000 worth of diamonds and a stunning pink diamond ring were stolen from the apartment.
This apartment has a glamorous history, and if you’re looking for a pad in the heart of Mayfair, this could be just the ticket. With original art-deco features including black and white marble flooring in the entrance hall. The property boasts a large reception room, two en-suite bedrooms. With a spectacular Macassar ebony and granite eat-in kitchen and 24-hour concierge service. Its 1,604 square feet of space and original character. With a built-in Bang and Olufsen home entertainment system, coupled with its location just around the corner from Claridges. This explains the £4.4 million asking price, £17,775 annual service charge and £400 ground rent that any owner will need to pay.
Of course, if you’re looking for a slightly more affordable apartment in Mayfair, there are plenty of estate agents to visit, such as Pastor Real Estate and Knight Frank!
