Generial views of 52 Cadogan Square, London. An historic Grade II listed building on one of London’s most desirable squares is set to be transformed into a £60 million mansion. See SWNS story SWHOUSE. Number 52 Cadogan Square was built in the 19th century for Thomas Andros de la Rue, who wanted a stunning Queen Anne Revival style home. It was later the residence of sugar tycoon Vernon Tate, who lived there until his death in 1950s. After this, the property remained in Tate & Lyle ownership and was used as accommodation for executives visiting London. But after being vacant for four years, the property is in need of significant refurbishment and architects, acting on behalf of The Cadogan Estate, have submitted plans to return it to a single family home. The result will be one of London's finest recently refurbished homes which integrates a sizeable mews property at the rear.
