A royal family from the Middle East has recently purchased what could become Britain’s priciest house; it could even overtake the Qatar’s royal family’s pad in the expensive property stakes. These two projects have become typical of many super-mansions being renovated in London, catering for the world’s rich list who want a foothold in the UK’s capital.
Qatar’s royal family bought the 185-year-old grade II-listed mansion Dudley House, on London’s Park Lane in 2006. It is now estimated to be worth £200m, featuring 17 bedrooms and 14 reception rooms. With beautiful views of Hyde Park it’s a definite contender for both priciest and most desirable property hotspot. This house is about as grand as it gets, its 50ft ballroom and 81ft picture gallery are the cherry on the cake.
36-38 Queen Anne’s Gate
This property appears to have it all: it’s detached, not listed (unusually) and it has a garden, all features that are desirable in the city.
