Why buy a home or rent an Airbnb in London when you can drop $14.5 million to live in a hotel room?

For travelers interested in relocating across the pond to London, an esteemed address is up for sale —  a 3,705-square-foot apartment at the Corinthia Residences at 10 Whitehall Place, adjacent to the five-star Corinthia Hotel London. With a £11,250,00 (approximately $14.5 million) price tag, that’s more than $3,900 per square foot.

The prestigious address in the heart of Westminster is right across from Whitehall Gardens and just down the block from 10 Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and a host of other monuments. The four-bedroom residence comprises an entrance hall, reception room, kitchen, dining room, study, a cloak room and an elevator. The master bedroom suite comes with a dressing room and bathroom clad in outright opulent Calcatta Oro marble imported from Italy.

Designed by award-winning London firm Goddard Littlefair (also responsible for the luxurious Gleneagles resort in Scotland), the apartment features high ceilings, fumed straight-grained oak floors, silk-pile carpets, original terra cotta chimneys and bespoke furnishings, not to mention modern chandeliers and other classy touches you’d expect to find in a suite that costs just slightly less than two private English islands. Like the luxurious hotel, this apartment was designed to impress.

Naturally, this opulent pied-à-terre will have access to Corinthia London’s hotel amenities, including a direct line for 24/7 concierge service, a trio of restaurants and four bars with cocktails and cuisine by chef Tom Kerridge (of a two Michelin-starred pub), round-the-clock room service and private access to the lauded ESPA spa. The property is just around the corner from the Embankment Tube station and Charing Cross rail station, but let’s be honest — if you’re buying this suite, you’re probably not taking public transportation.

According to the listing by Wetherell, it’s “one of seven remaining, beautifully interior designed lateral apartments.” So if you miss your chance on this one, there are still six more.

The hotel and residences come with a historic pedigree as well. The hotel originally opened in 1855 and served as the Air Ministry and Ministry of Defense from 1936 to 2007. Until the 1980s, the building at 10 Whitehall Place housed the UK’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. Winston Churchill stood here during WWII and announced rationing. Thankfully, you won’t have to worry about that today.
