One Hyde Park flat bought for £27m by unknown buyer

In one of the most expensive publically sold properties this year, a One Hyde Park flat has been snapped up for £27m by an unknown buyer.

The five-bedroom apartment was sold by estate agents John Taylor after a bidding battle.

David Adams, managing director of John Taylor, told the Daily Mail: “It is a five bedroom apartment with panoramic views of Hyde Park.

“It was the first flat to come up for sale on the park side and is the ultimate address to have in Knightsbridge.

“We had two people bidding for it including a local client and it has achieved a very reasonable price. It is one of the highest priced apartments sold publicly this year.”

The flat, which is 165 times the average home price in England, comes with a floor space of 9,000 square foot and is on the 8th floor of the building.

Designed by the Candy brothers, the building is billed as one of the world’s most-exclusive addresses with residents having access to a private swimming pool, cinema, gym and spa.

The building has 86 homes and a Rolex and McLaren Automotive showroom on the ground floors.

    Something doesn't add up.
    The agent says there was a bidding battle, but if the property is 9,000 sq ft, that means it sold for just £3,000 per sq ft, less than half what it was claimed units in the development were selling for before Surely if this is park-side and high up, should have gone for excess of £6500 psf at least?

    How curious that someone has posted that comment on THAT particular date. You bet something doesnt add up. Im currently being IP *hidden* because of what happened (twice) in Oct 2010. Im greeted Estimado Adrian (!), written to in Spanish then locked out of thelotter,com after they failed to forward the scan of my Paid-For Oct 30 2010 tickets they then erased evidence of comms between us. (Nice try, I'd already screengrabbed it.)
    Im being IP Geolocated all over the world including Dublin Castle, Windsor Castle +The Whitehouse. Im quite certain my impersonator will soon be asked, tho not by Strathclyde Police who've refused to investigate theft of £113m (OR 306m) "Did YOU sign the back of the ticket?" They'll be forced to admit "No". How do I know? Because I bought the Oct 8, 2010 £113m ticket & I very definitely signed it.
    Im NOT hiding, Im being *hidden*. Data from my PC was recently discovered to be being illegally routed through servers at a Personal Injury Lawyers in Dallas, the city to which a friend with the same surname as the man also discovered to illegally have his name associated via a fraudulent Life Insurance policy set up by my *Spanish Bank, allegedly emigrated.
    When I contacted them and asked what they were doing they refused to respond.
    Interestingly Im also IP route-traced to the home of a Visa Internat. employee whose property value nosedived 40% during 2008-2010. Funny that.....
