Qatari Tycoons Consider Selling Luxury Townhouse in London’s Mayfair

Better known as the Naval Club, the Georgian property was a private members' club for the best part of a century, before the Al-Khayyat family purchased it for about £28 million in 2021, down from an initial guide price of roughly £35 million ($43.6 million).
