The London property market has long since ceased to amaze with its unyielding price surges, but it is the very highest end of the sector that continues to surprise more than any other.

Some of the most extravagant activity continues to take place in the prestigious district of Mayfair, and it is here that a stunning property recently hit the market priced at a cool £16 million.

Located on the first floor of a brand new property development called The Mellier on Albemarle Street, the three-bedroom apartment is spread over more than 3,500 square feet and contains a balcony, three ensuite bathrooms and a library. You can read more about it in today’s newsletter,
