Britain’s second-richest man Len Blavatnik’s home in Kensington Palace Gardens could fetch up to £200m.

The grade II listed property on the “billionaire’s row” is in its final stages of a two-year refurbishment process. Agents told the London Evening Standard that once complete, the 13-bedroom “mind-boggling” property could be worth up to £7,000 per square foot

The outrageous features of the super home include 25-metre swimming pool, divided between indoor and outdoor sections by “sliding glazed panels” and a “multi-storey” underground car park which can fit five vehicles. Other luxuries include a gym, massage room, cinema, hot tube and wine cellar.

Giles Hannah, managing director of Mayfair based VanHan, told the Standard, “It is one of the best on the street, with a particularly large garden and fantastic views overlooking the lawns of Kensington Palace, where the Duchess of Cambridge will be pushing her pram. He’s doing it to a phenomenal standard. It has vast ceiling heights. All the windows have armoured glass.”

Blavatnik came to the US in the seventies penniless and went onto become a millionaire with his private equity firm Access Industries. The Sunday Times Rich List values his wealth at £11bn.

Just last month, he got a £2bn windfall for his stake in TNK-BP. He’s also invested $130m (£81m) in Spotify-rival Deezer.
