Exclusive Living At London’s Albany
If you’re looking for some hidden away and exclusive luxury property London may have what you’re looking for, located just off Piccadilly. The Albany is a historic block of flats, built in the late 18th century originally for a British politician and is considered to be London’s oldest apartment block. Since then, it has traditionally housed wealthy bachelors, and over the centuries has been home to the aristocracy, prime ministers, and other rich individuals. These days, you aren’t actually required to be a bachelor, although children under 14 aren’t allowed to live in luxury apartments. Expect to pay around a million pounds for a modest apartment in this secretive and highly sought after building, although the location is almost worth the money. Within a few minutes’ walk are the Ritz Hotel, Green Park, Fortnum and Mason gourmet food shop, and the Burlington Arcade.
