Ac­counts staff go right to the point

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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

Ap­par­ently, a mem­ber of staff con­tacted the coun­try house depart­ment to check whether the dec­i­mal point was in the right place.

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.
