Most Expensive House In The UK
We already know that houses in the UK can be very expensive, but there is one that costs more than 500 times the average property price in the UK.
Let’s take a look at the Most Expensive House in the UK.
The mansion has a classic English style, it is huge and it’s located in one of London’s most exclusive areas – Mayfair’s Hill Street.
That makes is close to Hyde Park, and not far from Buckingham Palace.
The refurbished mansion is newly listed and has become the most expensive home on the open market in the UK.
And what you could get for that money is pretty impressive. With 21 bedrooms, 7 reception rooms, 21 bathrooms, a garden, a swimming pool and a sauna, this residence does get you a lot for your $150 million.
The house has recently been completely refurbished and also has a spacious mews house to the rear along with a garage large enough for four limousines.
Other features include a large chef’s kitchen, a treatment room and a grand entertainment space, served by a new glass lift.
Lawrence Hall, from property website Zoopla, the one listing the property, said:
“With 21 bedrooms and the equivalent number of bathrooms, this is a serious trophy property set in the heart of Mayfair and one of the most expensive ever listed on Zoopla.”
I believe he is right when he calls is a trophy property, as just running costs for a London mansion like this are likely to be around $420,000 per year, with huge amounts spent on insurance, security and staff. A trophy hard to maintain at its best.
The marvelous mansion was build in 1749 by Benjamin Timbrell, a self-taught architect and the first person who lived here was Sir Abraham Hume, followed by names like Baron Colborne of Westharling and the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.
So, I guess that just by thinking about those who lived in it and the elegant, luxurious parties they throw, you will immediately feel like a Duke or Duchess yourself.
The fact that the whole house has a simple and classic design really empowers the spacious nature of the house.
Everything from the interior staircases to the garden outside is build with elegance and refinement. And when you think about all the space it offers, it’s easy to see why they put on it a price tag that transformed it into the Most Expensive House in the UK.
