In an advertisement on the property website rightmove, Auction House London said the two adjoining buildings bring in £301,000 in rent each year, with the potential to bring in £350,000 a year when fully let.

Of the 80 apartments, 42 have a house of multiple occupancy (HMO) licence and 38 are self-contained, with the apartments spread across three floors and five floors in the two buildings.

Many of the rooms share communal kitchens and living rooms, with both the primary block of 50 apartments and smaller Mews Block of 22 apartments having roof terraces.
