Blake Morgan advises on purchase of London home used as wartime HQ by Churchill

Posted on
Blake Morgan’s residential property specialists have acted for the buyer of a London home once used as a secret wartime HQ by Winston Churchill.

The six-storey town house at 112 Eaton Square, Belgravia, is one of the most expensive houses to sell in the UK this year.

The Blake Morgan team was led by London-based partner Pervaze Ahmed, who acts for many high net worth individuals and specialises in the sale and purchase of prime London residential properties.

He said: “Our strong connections with intermediaries and estate agents and our service-driven approach are key elements of Blake Morgan’s residential property offering – ensuring that our team has a loyal following of clients in this market.”

The Grade II-listed town house is the former home of Leo Amery, a Conservative minister who was instrumental in a plot to replace Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain with Winston Churchill in 1940.

Amery hosted a meeting there where senior Conservative politicians decided Chamberlain had to be installed as Prime Minister. Three days later, Chamberlain resigned.

Churchill used the house during the war as a secret, informal HQ. The property, built in 1825, will now be refurbished and restored.
