The sale was supposed to be top secret, with all interested buyers reportedly having to sign non-disclosure agreements just to view the Kensington mansion, but few things manage to stay hush hush when you live on arguably the UK’s most sought-after street.
According to The Times, Saudi Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd has put one of his Billionaire Row mansions on the market for a staggering £110m. The Prince owns 5 Palace Green in Kensington and 12 Kensington Palace Gardens.
The three-storey detached home is right next to Kensington Palace with the likes of Foxtons founder Jon Hunt, the Sultan of Brunei and Britain’s fourth-richest man Lakshmi Mittal also owning homes on the street.
The average house price on the street is almost £20m, according to property comparison site Zoopla. The cumulative value of all the homes is thought to be £3.5bn.
Houses here rarely go on the market and cause quite a stir whenever they do, with the world’s ultra-rich and famous clambering for a spot.
The Saudi Royal family is believed to own around 10 properties on the street with the 12 Kensington Palace Gardens address thought to be worth some £150m.
