Externally Small Terraced House - £39.5M - Mayfair

Recommended Posts

Wow. This is taking extensions to a new level.....


Originally (by the look of picture 11) a modest terraced house.

Extended every which way but loose. .

Yes, it's big, but who the heck has £40m (Oh, plus £1,975,000 stamp duty) to buy this???

Anyone who needs to hide capital away from the tax man and is a non-dom in the UK. We have the most lienent tax rules for property non-doms in the world. You can stick money into UK housing get a decent return through capital appreciation alone (i.e no need to rent it out) and the management fee to look after your £39.5m? Well, that's council tax and a 4% stamp duty (stamp spread over the years you hold the asset). So basically hold this money in property for 4 years and you're guranteed to get it back after a 1% fee per annum is charged and you get a reasonable rate of return. Now, think about the haircuts that europe is introducing for bank accounts over 100K, was it 15% in Cyprus? Which one would you prefer if you had £40m in the bank? UK property or US treasuries at the highest prices in 30 years?

This looks like the place that was featured on Evan Davies' programme on the divide between London and the rest of the UK a month or two back.

IIRC correctly the plates on the dining table cost over a grand a piece.
