‘Landlords we can pay ‘Guaranteed Rent’…but certainly not on London’s most expensive rented houses !
London is fast becoming a city of renters. That’s OK, argue some commentators; some people like renting. It fits with their lifestyle. There’s certainly one subset of society for whom renting is a lifestyle choice, and that’s the megarich. Who else would pay the kind of rents listed below, which we started clicking on with an increasing sense of disbelief. This really is a whole other world.
Zoopla doesn’t show any photos of this six bedroom house in Kensington Palace Gardens, and the only details available are that it’s detached, has a garden, terrace and double garage. More information will only be given if you’re happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement, which makes us curious about who actually owns this gaffe. And remember that if you want to be a neighbour to William ‘n’ Kate, that price above is per month.
You get your own swimming pool and home cinema with London’s second most expensive rental, a seven bedroom house in Mayfair. You’d also get the benefit of a roof garden, but judging by the photos it’s pretty overlooked by office buildings. Even this kind of money can’t privacy. Chuh.
For this much money you’d maybe want a nicer area name than Frognal, but you literally can’t have everything. This is actually three houses in one, with the main property having eight bedrooms. There’s also a three bedroomed cottage and a self contained studio for the chauffeur or something. Also interesting to note: even in Hampstead mansions, you don’t necessarily get much space to walk past the end of your bed.
Another one at this very specific price for if you’d prefer to be in zone 1. It’s a Park Lane penthouse and the smallest so far with a mere four bedrooms. You also get “the exclusive use of an Aston Martin” for those days when you simply have to pretend to be Bond. Would help if applicants really, really like the monochrome look.
What an opportunity! For a shade under £150k a month, you could be one of the handful of people who actually live in One Hyde Park. The building’s infamous for being one of the prime examples of ‘lights out London’, where rich people buy a flat and hardly use it; perhaps one of the absentee owners has decided to let someone enjoy the view.
We still think the development should be pulled down and replaced with social housing.
