would you pay £105 million for this?

What's an unsuspecting driveway?

Is it a driveway that's just about to get a big fright?

I'm betting that whoever buys it, stamp duty will be avoided.

I look at houses like that and think wow - and then think of how far you'd have to walk for a wee - to make a cup of tea...on the plus side if you decided you wanted another biscuit you'd burn the calories off just going for it!
Also think about looking for the remote control (and everything else my DCs manage to lose in our much smaller residence)....
Not for me !

Seriously though the garden will full of traffic fumes ...and noisy.... better to invest in a helicopter and a pad in the country ...

Its a nice enough house but I just think for that money I want acres of land as far as the eye can see, not be hemmed in on all sides.

If that's the price for a bit of space in London I think I'll have to pass this time. Makes our 1.3 acres with views over open countryside seem a huge bargain though.

A mere 7.5 £million in stamp duty

Ha ha ha ( falls off chair)

Wait a sec, let me just check down the back of the sofa....

Roll on the Mansion Tax

It may be priced at 640 times the average house price, but it doesn't pay 640 times the average Council Tax.

Next time we have a Cabinet that isn't full of ex-Etonian multi-millionaires we may get a change. We're All In this Together but some are more In than others.

Maybe. But It would just be a crash pad really.

bluebump Mon 09-Sep-13 14:54:34

I would! Shame it's just massively out of my budget.

Beautiful but I'd be far too neurotically nervous to even breathe in a place like that.

I think it's lovely from the outside but the interior is horrible.
If the buyers have any money left they're within walking distance of JL home department. Not sure about BHS, might be too far.

KirstyJC Mon 09-Sep-13 14:43:25

I would, but would need to get it redecorated. Bit over the top for me! I'll get my purse.....

In a heart beat. It's only £104,500,000.00 more than I'm looking to spend. Easy! Really handy for DHs work. Not so much DCs schools, but I'm sure we'll figure it out.

Yes if I was a billionaire. Still seems a bit steep though even for south ken.
