    About this property

    • 65 Fitzwilliam Square is a prominent and prestigious vacant Georgian office building providing investors, developers or owner occupiers a blank canvas for a myriad of refurbishment options.

      The Main House

      The main building comprises a two bay four storey over basement Georgian office building. Including a return element of three storeys over basement, it extends to approx. 7,137 sq ft GIA. The property retains much of its original Georgian features including cornicing, fireplaces, sash windows and tiled flooring.

      One distinct feature is the building's higher parapet height to others on the north side of the square. The door cases and doors extend to almost a foot higher than adjoining buildings enhancing the height and natural light into the first floor of the building which benefits from full height windows. The façade of the building, and no. 66 adjoining, are the only on the northern side of the square with granite rustication at ground level

      Special features

      Georgian elegance, including distinct Corinthian columns
      Full height windows
      Superb natural light
      Dumbwaiter serving 3 levels
      Lower ground floor with separate
      access to the street
      Secure car parking
      Garden area

      The Mews
      The rear of the site provides for a mews building fronting Pembroke Lane. The mews, a former coach house to the main building, extends to approx. 1,081 sq ft GIA over two levels.

      Two car parking spaces are provided for at the rear of the mews and it is secured from Pembroke Lane by a roller shutter gate. The mews benefits from a grant of planning (Ref: 4547/19) to extend the footprint by 1,400 sq ft GIA. Highlights include:

      Two storey extension to the rear of the mews with a sunken ground floor level set 1 metre below the existing ground level
      Raised first floor terrace to front of mews onto Pembroke Lane
      Upgrade of car parking area to the front
      Detailed repair and conservation work to the original building

      The Opportunity

      Development of Fitzwilliam Square began in 1790 and continued until 1828. Number 65 and the adjoining number 66 were built by Clement Codd in 1822. Number 65 and 66 are noted in the Fitzwilliam Square Architectural Conservation Area as displaying “elaborate doorcase treatment and long first floor windows”.

      With careful restoration, Number 65 can serve as:

      HQ Office Building
      Primary Residential Residence
      Multiple Residential Residences

      The existing grant of planning on the mews sets a positive precedent for a myriad of redevelopment opportunities. Many other mews sites on Pembroke Lane have been redeveloped as single residences, apartments and office buildings complementary to the main houses.
