Three of the planet’s most expensive residences expected to change hands next year are in London, a survey has revealed.
Topping the list of the most expensive homes currently on the market is Grade I-listed Regency residence at Carlton House Terrace, St. James’s. The property is estimated to be worth £250m.
In second place, Saudi Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd’s property on Kensington Palace Gardens, or “Billionaire’s Row”, as it has become known, is expected to fetch around £100m.
The third London property on the list is in tenth place, and is the capital’s most expensive private residence outside of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea. Estate agent Knight-Frank is asking £65m for the 15 bedroom Grade II listed mansion on Bishop’s Avenue, Hampstead.
The remaining properties on the list are made up of three residences in New York, and another three also in America. The only property to make the top ten list outside of the US and London is a 150-year-old palace in Istanbul, which is on the market for $115m. Bargain.
