Wealthy Wilton

Six-storey Belgravia residence with controversial business connections goes on sale for 22% less than it was marketed for in 2015 and 3,497% more than it sold for in 1997

 

A 6,961 square foot freehold terraced townhouse in Belgravia has gone on sale for £25 million or 3,497% more than it was sold for in 1997.

 

4 Wilton Crescent – which sold in 1997 for what now seems like the paltry sum of just £695,000 – was marketed two years ago for £32 million and provides 5 reception rooms, 9 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 2 garages in an adjoining mews house.

 

Featuring traditional interior design by Robert Kime – decorator to the Prince of Wales – the property featured in court papers in December 2015 in the context of a dispute between a lawyer turned secretive property speculator named Glenn Maud and his former associate Robert Tchenguiz. Said to be at one-time worth £4.5 billion at the height of his success and originally from Sheffield, this businessman and his wife reportedly spent some £6 million renovating the house but was ordered to live on £500 per week in 2012 by a Guernsey court.

 

4 Wilton Crescent is now offered by Knight Frank.

  1. I hope the new owner leaves the very fine decoration by Mr Kime in place. For once something tasteful in Central London.

  2. The interior ruining decorator should be SHOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hideous and poor taste guided this retro design!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rubbish!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Insanity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Narrow terraced house with nothing to it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrecking ball would be most useful —– And the price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Insanity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not worth even the 1997 numbers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Insanity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Too many levels for a pensioner like me and very narrow also. With all that money wouldn’t want more space on less levels? A lovely facade to the building however. Quite special.

  4. As a property professional I would argue this location is one of the finest in London and on that basis this house will always hold its value. £32m was plainly too high but £25m is a better place to be. I suspect a sale at around the £19.5m-£21m mark will follow.

    1. Yolanda, do you not realise how it grates with people when you boringly keep describing yourself as a ‘property professional”? It means bugger all.
      And what on earth has a price got to do with a ‘better place to be”. Are you American?

  5. The gay mafia strikes again. Give it a rest, Rod. I’ve seen your place. You ain’t no expert on design…screwed-up design? Yes. you’re an expert. lol
