A London house goes on sale for $150 million
September 01, 2009 - London
A terrace house in Belgravia has gone on the market for a record £100million. (approx. US $150 million).
The current record London house price is £80 million, paid last year by Ukrainian philanthropist Elena Franchuk for a property in Upper Phillimore Gardens, Kensington.
The six-story property in Belgravia, central London, has 20-foot ceilings, luxurious fixtures and more than 21,000 square feet of living space.
The lavish amenities include an indoor swimming pool in the basement, a gym, a home theater, a garage room, a news house and much more.
The home is on the market at £4,671 per square foot, above the prices commanded in Belgravia. The vendor is refusing to disclose details normally available including how many bedrooms it has.
The buying agents usually involved in such deals are not being allowed in to look "on spec", while potential clients are being vetted to ensure they would have sufficient funds.
Along with Candy Spelling's Holmby Hills mansion, this white-stucco-fronted house at No. 10 Belgrave Square, owned by Lebanese developer Musa Salem, is now the most expensive home on the market in the world.
