Got £100 million to spare? Fancy this house? | Jamie Tuohy

Feast your eyes on this palatial mansion – a £100 million sprawling London home that has just been put on the market as Britain’s most expensive home.

Heath Hall was built in 1910 for William Park Lyle of the Tate & Lyle family, and is located on The Bishops’ Avenue, a super-exclusive road in Hampstead.

After falling into disrepair in the 50s, it was bought by a property tycoon in 2006 and following an investment of £40 million in the stunning home, he has now decided to sell the property.

If you have £100 million to spare (and you’re reading my blog? Can I just have a shameless handout? WOW), then Heath Hall offers the unique quality of being a country home in the heart of the city.

There’s just one more thing – stamp duty costs £7 million a year, oh yeah, and if you manage to get a chance to view the house – you’ll have to pay £2,000 for a brochure.

There’s no denying it’s a stunning house and maybe I’m just being picky, but would anyone else think that for £100 million, having a relatively pokey garden with neighbours looking in over your fence, is a bit RICH?
