Since the $158 Million Heath Hall didn’t find the buyer, this lavish mansion from 1910, built for sugar tycoon William Park Lyle of the Tate & Lyle family is now available at reduced price of £65 million ($98 million).
Although its original price of £100 million garantee the title Britain’s most expensive, this house in London’s most exclusive street, also known as Billionaires’ Row, is still the most valuable on the British market even with a discount.
Grant Alexson, from Knight Frank, which is marketing the property, said: “The £65 million price is more realistic. It is not a bargain, but there is no house like it. It is beyond ambassadorial, it is the sort of home which is perfect for kings or princes.”
Heath Hall has been returned luxury shine in 2006, since it had previously been in neglected state. Andreas Panayiotou, Chairman and CEO of the Ability Group, invested £40 million ($63 million) to restore it to its former glory.
The mansion spreads over 2.5-acres of stunning plush gardens, and features six main living areas with high ceilings and lots of natural light, 14 bedrooms, all with either an en suite bathroom or adjoining bathroom, drawing room, dining room, family room, sun room and snooker room. There is even a panic room with a toilet, basin, control panel and separate telephone wires that can’t be cut to keep you safe. Throughout the house can be found Italian carpentry and hand-carved marble basins, all earlier prepared in Italy before being transported to the property.
There is also a wine cellar with the capacity to hold 647 standard size wine bottles in a temperature controlled environment, a gym, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and an impressive white stone swimming pool. Additionaly, there is also a swimming pool in the gardens done in black mosaic.
