Margaret Thatcher’s Belgravia home on market after updateThe six-bedroom, Grade II-listed townhouse at 73 Chester Square has undergone refurbishment for the past three years and now has a newly constructed mews house with a roof terrace and a private garage.

But the 73 plaque in the doorstep, which was installed by Thatcher in 1991, remains as does the steel-lined, bombproof front door.

The layout and design of the formal dining room and interlinking study on the ground floor has been reinstated exactly as the Iron Lady had it during her 22 years at the property, from 1991 until her death in 2013.

Renovators have added a pair of original Louis XVI fireplaces and parquet flooring, selected to match the house’s original floor.

A cinema, bar area and a 500-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar have also been added during the refurbishment.

George Brooksbank, managing director of Leconfield, said the developer aimed to achieve the “perfect balance” between traditional and contemporary living by respecting the house’s history while incorporating the latest in modern technology.
