Not too shabby I suppose.
Looks a bit cramped.
Absolutely. There's barely room to swing a few specially breed gold plated unicorns.
All those rooms and he is going to stand on the roof
Looks pretty cool, I guess if you can afford it then why not.
He's not standing on the roof. He's testing out the long-drop toilets.
EDIT: Or maybe he's protecting the family jewels and standing *well* back from the atomic accelerators in the basement.
A guy in NYC is doing a similar thing:
You know, back in the days of robber barons, you'd just buy up a few flats, then raze them and build a brand-spanking-new mansion.
Not just a game anymore, is it?
What, no elevator??
No, no elevator in London. Only a lift.
I doubt that'll be the actual layout too. Or if it is we know where, and thanks to the Sun, with who, he'll be sleeping.
Speechless. It looks big, but you could make a house 10 times that size just outside of London for that money... along with a few acres of land.
But then it won't be in London when you have that kind of money it really is all about Location, Location, Location. I'm sure if he wanted a bigger house he would've just bought up three adjoining properties.
He has an £18m 420 acre estate in West Sussex, but West Sussex isn't London. This is all about location. London is one of the greatest cities on earth, and he is about to commission what will probably be the finest private residence ever seen in it.
He's got a battle with the Queen then, her house is ruddy big too!
It may be big, but Buck House isn't very classy. Garden's all right, though.
I'd live in the Queen's house.
And enjoy your conversations with various strange people that keep breaking into your bedroom and sitting on the end of your bed and staring at you while you're asleep.
but you get to meet Batman so it is worth it
No means no, Liz!
These days, even robber barons can't avoid planning regulations - or the ire of other slightly less well off robber barons who insist their vista stays the same.
Quite a lot of people are doing this these days, in London at least - buying up adjoining high-end property and linking them together.
Most people however are happy with e.g. two buildings for themselves, buying another couple of buildings elsewhere if they need to house guests as well.
I would as well if I could afford it.
Even better when he is spending around 10th of 1% of his total worth. That would be like me buying a cardboard box. so looking at it that way, all I can say is... Cheap Bastard.
Isn't it a bit inconvenient to have the dining room and kitchen on separate levels, as well as the changing rooms and the swimming pool?
Who cares. It's not like he'll be cooking his own food, or serving it.
As for the change-room situation, maybe he expects "the help" to change him and carry him to the pool.
None of these problems are real-world problems to a man that rich.
where are the indoor football field and the go-kart track?
