Win a Knightsbridge Flat (with a Shady Past)

Competition to win a Knightsbridge flat for £10 per ticket neglects to mention its former occupier, a convicted ‘gay sex plot’ royal blackmailer who died in 2016

 

Increasingly, with sellers unable to offload prime properties due to Theresa May’s inability to secure any kind of Brexit deal and the ongoing effects of former Chancellor George Osborne’s increases to stamp duty, those with luxury flats and houses are turning to raffling them.

 

An example of such comes in in the form of a ground and first floor maisonette on the corner of Walton Street and Beauchamp Place in London’s Knightsbridge. Extending to 1,063 square foot and including a large reception room, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the aforementioned fully furnished property is ambitiously being touted as being worth £3.2 million in spite of having sold for just £1.4 million in 2007 and £575,000 in 2000.

Bisexual ‘royal blackmailer’ Ian Strachan lived in the flat for a period following his release from jail

 

Now marketed in a competition by a company named Your Laddr – run by a former Alexander McQueen merchandiser named Santa Agolli – for £10 a ticket, Flat 1 at 132 Walton Street, SW3 is being promoted without mention of one of its most recent occupants, a controversial and now deceased ‘royal blackmailer’ who’d sought £50,000 for a set of recordings from various national newspapers in 2007.

 

Tried under the name of Paul Aðalsteinsson (other aliases included Paul Adalsteinsson, Paul Stein and Charles Goldstein), Grimsby trawlerman’s son turned “playboy” Ian Strachan lived at 132 Walton Street after being released following serving a sentence of five years for a gay sex blackmail plot against an unnamed, married member of the royal family.  He subsequently had his left leg amputated following a 30-foot fall from a balcony in Imperial Wharf, SW6 in 2013 and then spent 10 months in jail in Dubai in 2015 after crashing an Audi R8. He died aged just 40 of a drug overdose in South Kensington on Christmas Eve 2016.

 

The winner of Flat 132, Walton Street will have their stamp duty, legal fees and council tax for one year paid as part of the prize. In addition, they will be ‘given’ a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk with 800 miles on the clock, a cash amount of upto £4,000 to cover insurance for one year and a cash payment to cover a Kensington and Chelsea parking permit for one year also. Hopefully they’ll have better luck than the tragic Mr Strachan; may he rest in peace.

  1. I remember him sitting outside The Enterprise in Walton Street. He was always merry and looked like the life and soul. Sorry to hear he passed.

  2. As a property professional, this is a difficult one. The raffle is obviously aimed at netting more than it could achieve on the open market but the £3.2 million figure (£3010 per square foot) would not be that far wrong if it weren’t on such a busy corner. I think £2.9 million is closer to reality but for £10, why not? I’m off to buy a few tickets.

    • Yolanda, it’s not a ‘difficult one’. Why do you waste your valuable time as a ‘property professional’ stating the obvious. We are not all as thick and dimwitted as you seem to be.

    • More useless thoughts from the boring ‘Property Professional’….doubtless some ex Foxtons idiot.
      The real price for a lousy, noisy location like this is £2,000 a sq.ft.
      It’s not even a long lease.

  3. This is not factually correct about Paul . He fell from a balcony in Oakley St . He could not drive and he hired the car with his credit card on behalf of a friend . He died on Christmas Eve 2016 in Marylebone . Can you see how things become miss reported ? His ashes are here in my sitting room surrounded by love .

    • We have not suggested he died in this flat but I know for a fact that he lived there for a time.

      Regarding the car, he himself told me about his ordeal in Dubai.

      Regarding where he died, reports from the media after the inquest suggested he died in South Kensington.

      As I said previously, may this troubled soul rest in peace.

  4. Various things about Paul have been misquoted in the mainstream press . It painted a twisted version of the person he was . This was the start to his problems that lead to his death .

  5. It would seem this may have been a scam. Website shut down. No details of any winner. Your Laddr company in compulsory strike off. Santa Agolli registered a new company Folo Group (Travel Agencies). Probably funded with the ticket prices of the victims of this scam!
