From the flat that was where MI6 was run to a penthouse owned by royalty, there’s always a great story and big names behind the pretty facade – and 47 Grosvenor Square is no different.
The famous property, previously owned by Artemis Onassis, the sister of billionaire Aristotle Onassis and sister-in-law to Jackie Kennedy Onassis, was put up for sale for £25 million – and was snapped up in less than 24 hours.
The interest in the Mayfair residence has been immense due to this glamorous past – how many people can say they live where the iconic Jackie O, her sister Princess Lee Radziwill and Caroline Kennedy spent their time?
Speaking about the major 24-hour deal, estate agent Jeremy Gee said: “The deal is cloaked in secrecy but we understand that the apartment has sold to a Middle East buyer, a Saudi billionaire buying for his daughter.”
The five-bedroom apartment was sold for £18.6 million – and with a bit of restoration the property could be worth as much as £30 million!
