Set on two acres on London’s exclusive “billionaire’s row” The Bishops Avenue, the Grade II classified 1910 mansion originally built for former sugar tycoon William Park Lyle, Heath Hall has gone back on the market after a $63 million face-lift by property magnate Andreas Panayiotou. With an asking price of $158 million, the mega-mansion is now a part of the “super prime” market, the exclusive universe of billionaires and oligarchs.
Panayiotou bought the property in 2006, after the 40,000 square foot residence had fallen into disrepair and was deemed to only be fit for demolition. After bringing the house and gardens back to their former exquisiteness and adding liberal lashings of 21st century conveniences and technology, the 17-bedroom home is now the most expensive property for sale in all of Britain.
The home features a 10-car garage, a solid oak staircase crafted in Italy, a huge dining room, bedrooms the size of New York apartments, bathrooms consisting of 12 types of marble, a panic room, a garden room under a massive skylight, a home movie theatre, indoor pools and outdoor pools. Large HD televisions also feature throughout and the interior design has been completely updated to make the mansion a high-tech, highly desirable, secure dwelling suitable for royalty or the ultra-wealthy.
