Situated between Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament, within the renowned Birdcage Walk Conservation Area, Old Queen Street runs parallel to Birdcage Walk.

Built around 1890 by the Dr Williams Trust who had owned the site since the seventeenth century, the property had combined commercial and residential users for many years and there was even a café on the ground floor until the 1920s. A metal plaque inscribed DWT (Dr. Williams Trust) can still be seen on the faade of the house.

Converted to a single dwelling house in the 1990s, this period property is very well presented with particularly high ceilings and, unusually, is three windows wide. It is not Listed.

Old Queen Street contains a mixture of commercial and residential properties with a number of large houses on the Park side having been converted to luxury residential use in recent years.

Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament are within minutes of the property, and the world renowned shops and restaurants of St Jamess and Mayfair are a pleasant walk across the Park.

Both Westminster Underground Station (Circle District and Jubilee Lines) and St James Park Underground Station (Circle and District Lines) are less than 0.5 km away.
