The unique property at 206 Brompton Road was put on the market in September last year by the Ministry of Defence. It is expected the property will now be used for a predominantly residential development and the money raised will be ploughed back into the Defence budget.

The tube station, which was opened in 1906 and designed by English architect Leslie Green, closed in 1934 after London Underground decided it was no longer financially viable. The building was later taken over by the War Office and used as an anti-aircraft operations room.
