A LONDON MANSION LOCATED IN LONDON’S CITY OF WESTMINSTER, IS SET TO BECOME THE MOST EXPENSIVE HOUSE TO BE PUT UP FOR SALE..we are off to the newsagent to get a few lotto tickets :)
The £250,000,000 beauty is located in the capitols opulent Carlton Terrace and is said to have more living space than a football pitch!
The six storey grade 1 listed Regency mansion, neighbors Buckingham palace and provides 50,000 sqft of living space thus making it London’s largest private homes.
The property is 1,537 times more expensive than the average house sold last month in the UK, which was worth £162,606. At the asking price, the buyer will face a £17.5 million bill for stamp duty.
Details regrading the property’s interior spec are vague, but it is believed to boast a magnificent double staircase and huge ballroom.
The secret brochure apparently shows interior photographs which were taken in the 1890’s, because the current owner does not want to advertise the contents of his home for security reasons.
Last year, more than 400 properties were sold over that threshold, up from 350 in 2011.
With so many properties now fetching nine-figure sums, oligarchs might be tempted to move to Kensington’s Egerton Crescent, Britain’s priciest street – where they can pick up a bargain with the average house costing just £8 million.
