With $8million you could move into one of these luxury apartments across the road from Buckingham Palace and be calling The Queen your neighbour


For $8 million you could be neighbours with the Queen 

If you’ve always dreamed of living like The Queen, this may be closest you’ll ever get! That’s if you’ve got a spare $7.9 million lying around.

Six luxurious apartments within the ‘The Buckingham’ building located next door to Buckingham Palace, have just been put on the market with prices starting from $7.87 million (£4.35 million) and reaching a huge $32.5 million (£18 million) for a three-bedroom penthouse with not one but two private terraces.

Located at 7-9 Buckingham Gate, one of London’s most desirable areas, the future buyers of these deluxe dwellings will be able to watch the changing of the guards from their window or pop over to Buckingham Palace and ask The Queen herself for a cup of sugar.

Well, maybe not quite.



There are six two-and three-bedroom apartments available within the five-storey Italianate building and you can bet your royal dollar they won’t last long.


Aside from the prestigious location, the fully restored 18th century apartments boast many other royal-esque design features such as high ornate ceilings, grandiose archways, stunning chandeliers and marble-clad bathrooms with a luxe hotel feel.



Although high-tech appliances, custom-made kitchens and ultra-modern amenities have been added to each heritage residence, period features such as the original fireplaces and wall mouldings still remain, creating a delightful sense of nostalgia worthy of a Royal Warrant.
