But I can't help feeling slightly disappointed by it. Definitely wouldn't spend £45m on that.

Not much of a garden!

thehovelinspector Sat 19-Oct-13 22:34:56

And this one, a mere snip at just under £40m but for goodness sake, there are barely any windows!!

thehovelinspector Sat 19-Oct-13 22:35:09

Rooms just for the sake of it! I could not live there.

NorbertDentressangle Sat 19-Oct-13 22:36:09

oh dear, I see what you mean, it's very...erm....beige, isn't it.

the stripey curtains look straight out of dunelm mill!

Karbea Sat 19-Oct-13 22:39:39

Don't fancy a flat then?

Bishops Avenue delivers much better value for money.

thehovelinspector Sat 19-Oct-13 22:59:20

Omg the flat wins! £68m for a flat?! How can that ever be a wise buy???

I'd rather have a £10m country estate and a helicopter to get me to London in minutes. Plus £58m change.

It's absolutely mind-boggling.

True, but I think the bedroom and ensuite would give me a migraine.

Photo 24 of the Bishops Ave one - the carpet is so institutional. Looks like a big chain hotel room in a bad way.

I love the way the Bishop's Avenue house has an entire photo dedicated to the wine rack....and another with a misty-focussed shot of a semi-naked statue....also it's described as "newly extended". Because 11,000 square feet just isn't enough.....

MerylStrop Sun 20-Oct-13 00:17:41

That flat is just nasty
I didn't think Russian oligarchs would have to spend their time looking on Rightmove, really

HumpdaySelfie Sun 20-Oct-13 00:20:57

Do you think if I click the 'arrange viewing' button, they'd actually let me arrange a viewing...?

scurryfunge Sun 20-Oct-13 00:23:05

Hump, I'd love a nosey round but suspect they wouldn't allow the riff raff.grin

thehovelinspector Sun 20-Oct-13 00:27:41

Go on I dare you to try the arrange viewing button!!

HumpdaySelfie Sun 20-Oct-13 00:32:02

I just clicked. But they want more info about me than I'm prepared to give out for a laugh. And I'm guessing what seems funny now (post- wine) will seem a lot less funny than if an estate agent calls at 8am on Monday....

NotScared Sun 20-Oct-13 00:37:22

I'd rather have this one a snip of a price! Nice area too I've been there.

I notice in the house in the original post, the £45m one, that the chess set in the library is set up wrongly. Shows that money doesn't buy class.

bunnymother Sun 20-Oct-13 06:41:09

This house is amazing, but needs lots of work: www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-36924496.html Bet it sells for less than the £65m asking price, so negotiate yourself a bargain wink hmm

In Bishops Ave is the bath on the terrace? The floor plan looks like it is.

And the flat has 2 ensuites to the master bedroom confused

SPBisResisting Sun 20-Oct-13 07:43:16

I like htat first one!
Depressing thought that even if it was given to me outright, I couldn't afford to furnish it.

The bathrooms at Bishops Avenue look like they're bleeding.

That, on the other hand, is my dream house. Bit of work required to turn it into a proper home, and doubtless I'd need a few servants to properly fill it, but how gorgeous...also, doesn't everyone need their own chapel?
