Anything but small

A £15 million mansion on The Bishops Avenue that is anything but small

In the 1970s and 1980s, The Bishops Avenue became the favoured haunt of deposed dictators and exiled billionaires. Its cache has somewhat gone south in the years since and though properties there still command multi-million figures, many have languished on the market for many years first. A fine example of a typical home on the road is The Fountains. It has just come to the market for £15 million.

Built with entertaining in mind in 1926 and described as of a “Town Hall classical style” and “very boxy” in its appearance, The Fountains was originally known as Deans Cote. It is 10,000 square foot in size and aside from 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, it features ample entertaining space to welcome dignitaries and despots that includes a vast 58’ by 30’ reception space, a dining room that seats 24 and a 58’ swimming pool with a spa.

Suitably for Arabic buyers, the selling agents Knight Frank make specific reference to the house having “majilis” (“private places where guests, usually male, are received and entertained”) but bizarrely for super-car loving sorts, there is just one garage. Now, surely, that’s anything but large.

    1. What a hovel. It should be razed to the ground. In fact, there is no doubt that it will be. A very, very, very, very, very, very expensive building plot.

    2. You is very stupid people for writing such nasties about us Arabs. This is house that belonged to a very powerless man who has had great wealths. We can buy your tinpoint nation and you should be kissing our feet in gratefulness.

      • We should stop writing ‘such nasties’ but it’s ok for you to write them, yes? That makes you a hypocrite. And, in fact, a liar. Nobody has written any ‘such nasties’ except you. Run along, troll.

    3. Well said Mel. Move along Malik. Monkey or manners? I’d rather have the latter. Thank you. Such arrogance shows you to be nothing more than just that.
