The famous Updown Court estate has been re-listed for £75,000,000 or $123,120,000 in today’s dollars.

It is situated on 58 acres of land and has a $6 million marble heated driveway and a total of 103 rooms. Spanning over 50,000 square feet, this mansion has it all. Amenities include 24 bedrooms each with their own marble bathroom, two lane bowling alley, five swimming pools, squash court, tennis court, wine cellar, 50 seat home theater and it’s own panic room.

    Monstrosity just about covers it. The architectural design is so bad that it borders on the ridiculous. Daniel probably has the price right too, although I’m guessing it could go as high as $25M. Amazingly, it was designed by architect
    John B. Scholz, who although no Horace Trumbauer, usually rises to at least the mediocre. In this instance, though, they probably scaled up an existing design, with truly horrific results. Hard to imagine how this spec project was greenlighted, though.

    It’s just horrible. I’ve never liked this house, no matter what the price is. The area of Surrey is quite nice, but there are plenty of nicer houses for less money in the area. It’s funny that the article mentions that the house was originally for sale for £70 million but is now asking only £75 million. Someone isn’t thinking clearly. Tear it down and build 10 very nice houses on almost 6 acres each.

    When i was a kid i fell in love with this place. i was about 14/15. Then i quickly realized how ugly it was. the facade is so sketched together and unsymmetrical.

    the floor plans are so big you cant even read the name of the room without zooming in.

    Yeah, this is gonna be a tough sell. Especially in Britain where the general culture doesn’t value material excess nearly as much as America, Russia or the Middle East. GOOD LUCK!

    Hope the seller’s in the mood for diminished expectations.

    Wasn’t this place build to and then be sold?
    Well that was a mistake…
    (I don’t get it, why builders build million dollar homes just to sell them. Are people with money so lazy they don’t want influence on their homes anymore?)

    This place is maybe the most expensive house on earth but it looks like a shopping mall. I like double staircases (if done correctly) but this looks like a huge foyer in a mall or something.
    Same goes for the bowling alley, looks very cheap. Definitely not like 120 million.

    There’s nothing appealing about the exterior of this house, the rear of it just looks too clunky and cold. I know its nice to have everything, but its just a bit too much, the guest houses look like mansions themselves, I cant imagine anyone who could fill this house with their belongings… The interior however I love! It must have taken years, all the attention to detail in the bathrooms are just stunning! Shame its such a waste to be concealed in a house like that…

    YET MORE INSANITY from the most ridiculous animal to EVER walk the earth……..Human Beings.

    The developer(s) deserve to LOSE the house and go SPECTACULARLY BROKE for this WRETCHEDLY OFFENSIVE, SLAVISH worship of INDESCRIBABLE EXCESS.

    I used to live in Surrey and often contemplated doing a drive-by off the M3. But yeah..im in agreement with the consensus here. YUK! This must be burning a big hole in someone’s pocket. I much prefer a drive through The Bishops Avenue in London. Impressive looking from the outside, the interior is a disaster. I can only think when this was built, the credit crunch was in full swing and it was rushed for a quick completion. ha! I mean, the owners must have deep pockets. Ive seen it used on a few TV programmes, but gosh, you’d think they’d open a spa or something or run it as a high-class hotel just to keep the leccy bill paid. Cant be good sitting there not used. Six years and no buyers. Wow.
