Luxurious £90m mansion has ballroom for 200 people
Simon Barnes, an independent property consultant, who has been inside the mansion says that it ”ticks all the boxes” and was “incredibly sellable” despite the rumoured £90 million price-tag. He said: “It is a big house in Mayfair, with its own mews home. It is very rare.”
“These properties were built as houses, but then they became too big to run. During and after the war they were used for commercial purposes and the mews homes were sold off. Times have changed and there is now a demand for big family houses.
There are around 20 people actively looking in this market and many more who could afford to be, but there is a shortage of homes. This is what makes the home on Upper Brook Street so rare. It ticks all of the boxes: there are grand entertaining spaces, fantastic bedroom suites, accommodation for staff, and you can drive numerous cars into it to park.”
“The house has been renovated to an exceptional standard. This combination made it incredibly sellable. If it didn’t have one of these it might have taken years to sell.”
Mr Barnes added: “It is one of the biggest deals of the year. “You could save all the tax in the world by moving to Switzerland but if you have no life then you might as well be on Mars. That’s why people choose London. Invariably, location will win. ”
