In a city like London, whose rich history has spanned centuries, finding a period property is not difficult. However, many historic homes have been modernized in affluent neighborhoods like Mayfair, replacing the intricate adornment of period architecture with sleek interiors. Still, a few holdouts, like this 19th-century Mayfair flat, remain.

Housed across the third, fourth and fifth floors of a charming building on North Audley Street, the property’s historic character is on full display the moment you enter the reception room. Laden in elaborate woodwork, including oak paneling, elaborate ceiling molding and an ornately carved working fireplace, the reception room is bathed in a generous light thanks to a bank of large sashed windows that line the streetside wall.

High ceilings run throughout the third floor, extending to the expansive double-aspect dining room and the Smallbone kitchen. Despite its charming appearance of checkered floors, baby blue cabinetry and subway tiling, the bespoke kitchen features high-end Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.

The primary suite sits at the front of the residence on the fourth floor, complete with a Juliette balcony for exceptional rooftop views of Mayfair. Two additional bedroom suites make up the rest of the fourth floor, with the final of the four bedrooms located on the top level.

A west-facing rooftop terrace further sets the distinguished residence apart from others found in Mayfair. Covering over 250 square feet, the terrace is ideal for entertaining. Centrally located, the property is in proximity to Hyde Park and Grosvenor Square, as well as the boutiques of Mount Street.

About the area: Situated in the City of Westminster, Mayfair is renowned for its elegant Georgian townhouses, upscale boutiques and high-end restaurants. The district has a rich history, dating back to the 18th century when it was originally developed as a fashionable residential area. Over the years, Mayfair has evolved into a hub of luxury and sophistication, attracting wealthy residents, celebrities and discerning visitors.
