A mansion in London is set to sell for £117million ($230 mn) – making it the world’s costliest home.

The palatial residence, on a street dubbed Billionaires’ Row, is believed to have been bought by Britain’s richest man, steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal.

He is believed to be close to exchanging contracts with owner Noam Gottesman, 47, a US-born financier.

The home in Kensington Palace Gardens, West London, Princess Diana’s former street, is being sold furnished and with an art collection.

It works out at an astonishing £8,000 per square foot.

His new pad pips the £115million previous record – paid in March for a flat being built in nearby St James’s Square.
