Spotted On Rightmove

Was doing my usual search of 5 mile radius of Exeter when this modest pied a terre cropped up for a cool £6 million

Fill your boots

I believe it's Nigel Mansells

Does he want a quick sale? Is he fed up with tyre kickers? Does he wheelie want that much? He really is a grand prix

I thought Mansell was a tax exile in the Isle of Man? Although didn't I hear that his private jet had the paint blasted off by another jet at Exeter airport?

IMPO that is one ugly house. The lake looks like strong tea from that photo - can't be right.

I can just about see £6m for the first one. An awesome place which does have some rather grotesque design inside.

The other place at £35m is beyond a joke. Yes, it's in a nice part of London, but it's hardly secluded, doesn't have much ground and isn't huge.

If anybody on here is going for it make sure you get a full structural survey. Looks like it is sinking into the water to me, might be an underpinning job.

11,000 sq ft isn't a large house ? What is a large house then ? This year a flat in London sold for £6000 sq/ft, so yes in the real world it's hideously expensive, but it's not inordinately expensive compared to its peers.

At just over £3k per sqft, it is massively expensive. Top end properties in St John's Wood / Hapmstead seem to trade at somewhere in the region of £1.5k per sqft.

Acacia Road is also quite a busy through street connecting Avenue Road and the Finchley Road. The smell from the horses at the nearby barracks also pervades that area.

I suppose that they are looking for a rich Russian who doesn't care about relative value.

I agree and I suspect the £35m is developer ego.

The £35m house is large, but not that large for the money.  Actually the ground and second floors are not much bigger than my ground and second floors, and its only much large than my house because it has two more layers.  And BTW my house doesn't cost £17m!!!!

I also know you can buy some similarly large and equally nice houses though perhaps not as modern in their specification in equally prime areas of London for considerably less than £10m.

So unless the vendors finds a particularly thick banker or Sheik, I would suggest he will struggle.

At a guess, I'd wouldn't value the property at more £12m for the spec and location.

But flat prices have always been much higher per square foot than houses.  I reckon the property is overpriced by a factor of 3.

Painfully pretty, apart from that living room ceiling with concentric circles.

Is that Myra Hindley's mugshot masquerading as art hanging in full view of the marital bed??!!!??? :o

There was a piece in a paper about it on MSE mentioning that. It's vile and says something about who lives in the house.

Ronnie and Jo bought the house in 1997 for just under £2million
Ever dreamed of living like a Rolling Stone? Well, here’s your chance to follow in the footsteps of one of rock’n’roll’s wild men... if you have £13million to spare.

If the current owner did buy it in 2005 for around £14M, then that place is now selling for under half the original price! That means the place has cost the guy over £4K per day in depreciation. It suggests he paid a big premium for buying it from a celebrity. :blink:
