Discover the Rich History of Windsor at St Anne’s Court: An Exclusive Auction Property Listed in our June Property Auction

Steeped in royal history and charm, Windsor captures everything that one would imagine of an English town. With its close ties to the British monarchy and picturesque streets, it is no wonder that Windsor attracts 7.6 million tourists annually. Among its historic lanes, Peascod Street stands out for its proximity to Windsor Castle and its storied past.

We are pleased to offer an exceptional four-bedroom apartment at St Anne’s Court on Peascod Street in our June auction. This property is a fantastic investment opportunity and a potential piece of Tudor history. It is alleged that Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s enigmatic and ill-fated second wife, resided here when she was his mistress.

The Historical Allure of Anne Boleyn

Anne Boleyn’s name is synonymous with intrigue, passion, and tragedy. As the second wife of Henry VIII and the mother of Queen Elizabeth I, her life and death have fascinated historians and enthusiasts for centuries. Anne’s influence on the king was profound, leading to England’s break from the Catholic Church and the establishment of the Church of England. However, her tenure as queen was brief and tumultuous, culminating in her execution in 1536 – the first queen to be executed in English history.

While historical records do not conclusively place Anne Boleyn on Peascod Street during her time as Henry VIII’s mistress, the allure of such a connection adds to the mystique of St Anne’s Court. The proximity of this property to Windsor Castle, a favoured royal residence, enhances its potential link to Anne and the Tudor court.

A Unique Investment Opportunity

St Anne’s Court offers a blend of historical charm and modern potential. This four-bedroom apartment can be transformed into a lucrative investment, capitalising on Windsor’s robust tourism industry and the growing demand in the Aparthotel sector. The property’s strategic location, within walking distance of town centre stations, ensures excellent visitor connectivity.

With a significant lack of new construction in the area, properties like this are rare finds. Whether you envision it as an Airbnb hotspot attracting tourists eager to explore Windsor’s rich history or as an Apartment catering to longer-stay visitors, the possibilities are endless. The apartment’s spacious layout and prime location make it versatile for many investment possibilities.
