Just Imagine the Mortgage Paid by Lakshmi Mittal on the World’s Most Expensive House


The World’s Most Expensive House
London’s paper, The Sun, today shares with us the rumored sale of the Most Expensive House in the World.

The home is located on “Billionaires Row” in London and is set to sell for a WHOPPING £117million or approximately $232 million to Lakshmi Mittal, the steel Tycoon, and one of the world’s richest men, says the Sun.

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.

According to the Daily Telegraph:

The detached residence is next door to the Israeli embassy on Palace Green, an extension of Kensington Palace Gardens.

The four-floor house with at least five luxurious suite bedrooms plus extensive servants quarters is described as an institutional neo-Georgian building typical of a type built from the 1920s onwards. It is being sold furnished and with an art collection.

  1. I would imagine it was financed. He’s buying it for his son, so I would expect that there’s some clever financing going on that will benefit Mittal.

    That having been said, who really needs a £117million pound house? I love Kensington – it’s one of my favourite parts of London, but that’s ridiculous.
