London mansion on sale for record £300m - London - property sale - mansion

The 60,000 square feet home once belonged to Lebanon's late Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri and was passed as a gift after his 2005 assassination to Sultan bin Abdulaziz .

It was originally built as four separate family homes, from number 2 to 8a Rutland Gardens, but has been converted into one of the capital's largest houses. The imposing building is believed to include a swimming pool, millions of pounds worth of gold leaf decoration and underground parking. It is also thought that the windows are bulletproof.

If the £300m asking price is achieved it will have more than doubled the previous record for a residential sale in the UK, set when a penthouse flat at One Hyde Park sold for £140m in 2010. Agents Knight Frank are offering the house to select international buyers, reports theFinancial Times, but it is not being advertised publicly.
