Steeped in history, 52 Portland Place is an iconic, landmark office building in London's prime West End.
Originally the home of Lady St Helier, the majestic premises was the scene of a dinner party in 1908 where her great-niece, Clementine Hozier, would meet Winston Churchill.
Less than six months later the pair would hold their wedding reception here.
Today the house belongs to EPF, having been acquired for owner-occupation by the company and our sister organisations.
EPF carried out a refurbishment and let the premises on an occupational lease, creating substantial uplift in value.
The acquisition demonstrates EPF's ability to identify undervalued opportunities and enhance them through tenant realtionships and asset-management initiatives.
