Updown Court, a newly built mansion for sale outside of London, offers plenty of lavish amenities: five swimming pools, an eight-limousine garage, and mosaic floor made of 24-karat gold leaf in the downstairs study.
The property, however, is best known for its price tag: more than 85 million British pounds (+$150 million USD).
If Updown Court fetches that price, it would make the 40,000-square-foot dwelling and its property the most expensive home ever sold, according to real estate agents.
The target owner, according to developer Leslie Allen-Vercoe, is a superrich international buyer looking for a second, third, or fourth home in London. “The house has been designed for a specific market, which is the billionaire market, as opposed to the millionaire market,” he says.
“The main house consists of four floors; each with its own magnificence. There are also two guest houses which consist of nine bedroom/bathroom suites in total, a security lodge located next to the main house, as well as an underground garage with enough space for a small collection of luxury cars. On a heated marble driveway, one can take a ride up to the house, where a creation with 22 bedrooms awaits you.
There are a total of five swimming pools; two are located in closed areas of the landscaped gardens, and the third outside pool is an “infinity pool” located on the roof, with spectacular views across the countryside. There are a further two indoor pools, one reached by its own private lift, which also has its own sauna, a beauty salon and dressing room.
there’s the two lane bowling alley and the snooker room, but it’s the 50-seat cinema with a private bar that truly offers guests the best relaxation and entertainment”
Larger in area than both the royal residences of Hampton Court Palace or Buckingham Palace, this magnificent estate symbolises the grand and imposing presence of the Great Houses of England. This property really has to be seen to be believed!
