Britain’s Most Expensive Millionaire Pad Sold for a Cool $210 Million

Millionaire Pad One Hyde Park

Nothing says “I am filthy rich” like buying Britain’s most expensive millionaire pad. If you had a spare $210 (£160) million laying around or stashed in a Walter White-style hole in the desert, you could have been the owner of the flashiest and most expansive property in the United Kingdom. But not any longer.

A lavish penthouse apartment in one of the swankiest parts of London has just been sold for a cool $210 million. The property sale has garnered a great deal of attention in the local and national media and amongst the growing litany of young and trendy multi-millionaires and billionaires that now make the metropolis their home.

Swanky Millionaire Pad in Knightsbridge

The penthouse is a prestigious One Hyde Park property, in the high-class and breathtakingly swank Knightsbridge area, just a stone’s throw from Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge. Chic, sleek, flash, prestigious, exclusive and expensive are just a few words to describe this stunning property. But is any home worth $210 million? Apparently so.

Nestled in a prime high-end shopaholic location just meters from Harrods and Harvey Nichols and next door to the 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the penthouse is taking the phrase “conveniently located” to the next dimension.

The Knightsbridge millionaire pad is spread over two floors and comes equipped with not one, but two wine cellars, which will tickle the fancy of even the most pretentious fermented grape consumer. There are two balconies looking majestically across Hyde Park offering first-rate elevated views of aging Tai Chi practitioners and cosmopolitan dog-walkers.

The extravagant interiors scream decadence with dominating chandeliers, authentic oak floors and even bulletproof windows for the security conscious and paranoid schizophrenics.

The SAS-trained security guards are on hand to deal with any undesirables unlawfully entering the property or to take out passing Hyde Park joggers with a sniper rifle.

Exclusive One Hyde Park Development

One Hyde Park is easily one of the most exclusive property developments in the world, purchased by the Candy Brothers in 2007. They initially bought the land for £150 million ($195 million) three years earlier and then went on to construct the 86-apartment complex in one of the most prime real estate spots imaginable. Tens of millions of pounds routinely change hands as the apartments are continually bought and sold.

The buyers of the most expensive millionaire pad in the UK are remaining under the radar. Although it is known that the property was purchased in the name of two offshore holding companies on the tax haven island of Guernsey. Although the sale initially happened in May, the full details are only now coming to light.

Britney Spears Becomes Highest Paid Entertainer in Las Vegas

Britney Spears

Do you want a piece of Britney? You’re not the only one. The world-famous pop songstress Britney Spears has become the highest paid entertainer in Las Vegas as details of her new residency at the MGM’s Park Theater emerge.

Oops, she’s only gone and done it again!

At $500,000 per show, Britney has now overtaken Celine Dion as the highest paid entertainer in Sin City. Whether it’s bare-headed, bare-crotched or even barely sober, any version of Britney is always worth a look.

Britney Spears Las Vegas Residency

Britney made an appearance in Las Vegas on Thursday to announce her “Britney: Domination” residency at the Park Theater of the MGM’s new Park MGM resort. The residency starts in the New Year and will see a total of 32 shows over the course of February to August.

Britney’s Domination show will be 90-minutes in length, and at $500,000 per show, that breaks down to a staggering $93 per second. Not a bad night’s work. And just goes to show the music industry can still generate big bucks with the right product.

Britney Spears stated in a press release in regards to Domination that:

“I am so happy to be returning to my second home — Las Vegas! I’m working on a brand-new show and I’m so excited for my fans to see it! It’s going to be so much fun being back on stage and I can’t wait to perform at Park Theater.”

Traveling Without Moving

The 36-year old singer also talked about how this show has more dancing than any other she has performed. She also talked about how grueling it can be on tour and how staying put in one venue in Las Vegas has made this the perfect deal for her.

This is not the first time the ‘Toxic’ singer has taken a residency. She finished a four-year ‘Piece of Me’ residency at Planet Hollywood on New Year’s Eve in 2017 and then took the tour nationwide and across Europe from July 12 to August 24, 2018.

Britney now enjoys the mantle of the highest paid entertainer in Las Vegas, knocking middle-of-road rival Celine Dion off top spot. Tickets go on sale from Friday, October 29 onwards.

Britney Spears joins an illustrious list of people who can also claim to be the highest paid performers in Sin City throughout history, such as Elvis Presley, Sammy Davis Junior, and ‘old blue eyes’ Frank Sinatra.
