Accounts staff go right to the point
THE UK’s most expensive home has just been sold – and the price was so high that Knight Frank’s accounts department queried it.

The property is a £140m country house, near Henley-on-Thames.
The buyer of Park Place is a Russian billionaire. He can look forward to 10 bedrooms, a helipad, a home cinema, a spa complex and state-of-the-art security system, plus 200 acres.
The most expensive property on the open market in Yorkshire is Forcett, a country estate, near Richmond. It costs £5.5m with GSC – www.gsccharteredsurveyors. co.uk
