The master bedroom is located on the second floor, with a generous ensuite featuring his and hers sinks as well as a bath and separate shower, while the third floor offers and further three bedrooms and separate bathroom.

The terrace is accessed via the fourth floor landing, while a small private garden juts from the lower ground floor. The previous occupants converted one of the bedrooms into a study.  

It’s available for a long let through estate agent Knight Frank and is unfurnished, meaning the new tenant is able to put their own stamp on the home. 

The square, located off the Kings Road, is widely recognised as the home of the 007 secret agent in Ian Fleming’s books and was pinpointed by William Boyd, who wrote the Bond continuation novel Solo.

Mr Boyd re-read all Fleming’s stories and found vital clues about the character’s residence’s sought-after location and interior in Moonraker, Thunderball and From Russia with Love.

Bond’s creator refers to his home as a ‘comfortable flat in a Plane-tree’d square off the King’s Road’ in Moonraker, Mr Boyd says, before he ‘let slip a crucial co-ordinate’ in Thunderball.

In the 1961 novel, the ninth in the series, Fleming describes Bond driving out of the square into King’s Road and then ‘fast up Sloane Street and into the [Hyde] Park.’

This led Mr Boyd to conclude Wellington Square was where Fleming imagined 007’s home, an opinion shared by John Pearson in a biography of Bond written in 1973. Here, the exact house number was identified as 30.

The elegant homes in Wellington Square were built in the early 1850s, which coincided with the death of the Duke of Wellington – who lay in state at the nearby Royal Hospital Chelsea. The square was named in his honour

However, Mr Boyd believes it is more likely to have been No 25. The home had belonged to The Sunday Times literary critic Desmond MacCarthy when Fleming worked at the newspaper as foreign manager.

Bond’s home is nestled on a road where houses sell for as much as £10 million, with an idyllic shared garden featuring a fountain standing at the centre.

By the late 19th and early 20th century the square was increasingly occupied by artists, musicians and writers, including organist Ernest William Trafford-Taunton and Winnie the Pooh author A. A. Milne.
