Michael Bloomberg has acquired some prime property in Central London — but it didn’t come easy.
Though the mansion was listed for $US23.4 million, it was eventually purchased by Bloomberg for $US26.5 million after a bidding war broke out among interested parties, according to the Daily Mail. The mansion is a historic, preserved building that sits along the River Thames and can only be accessed by a private road.
Bloomberg also owns a $US31 million abode in the Knightsbridge section of London. As reported by The New York Times, the gigantic new London headquarters of Bloomberg LP will be completed by 2016.
Lulu Egerton of Strutt & Parker Real Estate handled the listing.
