Britain’s most expensive home on sale for £300 million
A 45-bedroom mansion in London has gone on sale for a record £300million.
The seven-story pad in Knightsbridge has been valued at 1,300 times the price of the average UK home. The 60,000sq ft residence is the most expensive to go on the market in Britain yet. It has several lifts, underground parking and a decor rumoured to contain millions of pounds worth of gold leaf. The property is also said to have a large swimming pool and an industrial-sized kitchen. It is one of the largest single homes in the capital and is twice the size of the mega-mansion Roman Abramovich considered building nearby. The stucco-fronted property, initially built as four separate homes, was owned by the late Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri. When Hariri was assassinated in a Beirut bomb blast in 2005, the building was gifted to Sultan bin Abdulaziz, crown prince of Saudi Arabia who died in October.
The Rutland Gate property is being marketed privately to select international buyers. Any buyer would also be handed a £21 million stamp duty bill.
