Bring your own bidet

Most expensive house to be publicly offered for sale in the UK to be stripped of everything including the kitchen sink

 

When we last featured 2 – 8a Rutland Gate opposite Hyde Park in Knightsbridge in 2013, it was not officially on the market and priced at the staggering sum of £300 million. It is now for sale again at an undisclosed price and will be stripped of its entire contents after an auction on the 14th and 15th July.

Extending to 60,000 square foot in total and only slightly smaller than a football pitch in its size, the 45-bedroom property spans four buildings and has been owned by the Yunak Corporation, an entity registered in the tax haven of Curaçao in the Dutch Antilles, since 1982. It has 54 windows on its front elevation and features an interior designed and installed by Alberto Pinto in the 1990s. The house briefly listed on and then withdrawn from the property portal Zoopla last week.

 

Interestingly, according to The Guardian’s Esther Addley, “last December, a legal charge was registered against the property in favour of Omni Capital Partners, the billionaire developers Nick and Candy’s financial services arm, suggesting the owners had taken a loan secured against the property”. It is likely that the money raised will be used to bring the property up to modern standards and now consequently, the entire contents are headed to auction through a firm named ProAuction.

 

Amongst the 1,323 items on offer are everything from gold-plated waste paper bins to bidets and toilets. No estimates have been set and though some, such as the Mail Online, have estimated the total worth of the contents at a somewhat unlikely £50 million, Mark Flynn of ProAuction has simply stated: “We would be disappointed if we didn’t achieve £450,00 in total”. He added: “At the end of the day, my perspective is that this is second-hand furniture, albeit very luxurious furniture, and where it comes from is neither here nor there”.

  1. It is shameful that these people keep £300 million tied up like this whilst Madeleine McCann is still missing. The very rich owners should do their bit to help dear Gerry and Kate McCann in their efforts to find their beloved daughter Madeleine. Support Find Madeleine, support the campaign to Find Madeleine now. The Steeple Times really ought to start supporting this campaign and it ought to do so urgently. Everyone: Please donate to Find Madeleine now.
