Belgravia flat offered for £4.95 million in spite of featuring collapsed ceilings, ripped out light fittings and holes in the walls
Before putting a property on the market and having it photographed for a sales brochure, most would clean up and make the space look appealing. In Belgravia, however, the owners of a £4.95 million ($6.16 million, €5.84 million or درهم22.64 million) lateral flat in a Grade II listed building in Eaton Place plainly didn’t bother.
In spite of showing evidence of attempts of a renovation, pictures of a 1,810 square foot third floor flat show electrical wires hanging from collapsed ceilings, rubbish on the floor and holes in the walls.
Knight Frank offer the “totally unmodernised” 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom property on a long lease with 94 years remaining. They describe it as “offering buyers a chance to create a spectacular apartment”. The late Roy Brooks, an honest estate agent and author of Brothel in Pimlico, would have had a field day and no doubt advertised the flat instead as: “Bashed in Belgravia: Those with a dislike for dust need not cross the threshold”.
The flat has good bones……Do not forget it is all about the neighbourhood !!!
Repairs would be small change for those who could afford this. Location?
@Rose Steele. Location? Indeed, don’t get much better than Eaton Place, unless one lives in Buck House! As you say, repairing costs will be nothing to the person who buys.
Pathetic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Far too expensive given it has low ceilings and is in a boring area!!!!!!!!!!!!! Much better buying a really nice flat in One Hyde Park!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
