Billionaire property investors David and Simon Reuben won approval to convert a London office building near Buckingham Palace into an eight-bedroom mansion with swimming pool, sauna and staff quarters.

The brothers will be allowed to extend 139 Piccadilly in Mayfair and turn it into a single home with about 17,800 sq ft of space, the Westminster borough council decided this week.

The home will be almost 20 times the size of the average UK residence, according to data compiled by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
