    History - The present Brasted Place mansion dates from 1784-5, having been designed by the celebrated architect Robert Adam for John Turton, physician to Queen Elizabeth I and later George III. Subsequent alterations and additions include notably the 1871 west-wing extension, designed by Alfred Waterhouse from whom this apartment gets its name. Brasted Place was Grade I listed in 1954. An award winning restoration and conversion was undertaken in the mid 1990s under the auspices of the English Heritage. This removed the 20th Century additions and created seven individual residential apartments.

    Lease - Remainder of a 999 year lease from 1997 with a share of the freehold.

    Maintenance charges - £3,391 paid in 2020 including maintenance of communal grounds and the Estate road, regular exterior redecoration and upkeep of common parts. Peppercorn ground rent.
