At last, the much talked about Updown Court estate has finally sold after a long and painful 6 years of being on the market. An Indian businessman who is active in the UK purchased it for a reported €40 million or $55 million. It was last on the market for $65 million with Ireland’s National Asset Management Agency after they seized the property in July after its owners were unable to make good on an $80 million mortgage. Before that, it was listed at a much higher $123.12 million and was initially listed back in 2005 with an even higher $143.5 million asking price. If you don’t already know, the 50,000 square foot mega estate is located in the Surrey village of Windlesham in the United Kingdom, which is about an hour away from London. It is situated on 58 acres of land and has a $6 million marble heated driveway and a total of 103 rooms which 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.

    WOW i cant believe its finally sold! then again I guess you do get alot for your money, had the house been designed alot better (externally) I would have said thumbs up. I dont see who would want all that room, especially if your a businessman, doesnt that mean your out and about alot of the time?

    If it’s anywhere north of $25 million I’d say he got ripped off. Ugly house inside and out. Rather spend the money on a flat in London.

    About damn time it sold. Jesus it has been forever.
    Technically the price is a good deal but in reality it is not.
    $75,000 a week to run the place? Screw that. I would not even take it for free.
    Congratulations dude, you literally bought a white elephant.

      Venom, the guy that bought the house is from India. He is used to being around elephants.

    He is Indian, so he may have a large family and 2 or 3 generations living there. It seems perfect if that is the situation.

      Sure, it’s perfect if that is the situation AND you like visually offensive homes.

    Eternally shaking my head in permanent astonishment that ANY one built, LET ALONE EVENTUALLY BOUGHT such an indescribably gargantuan monstrosity.

    If whomever the new owner is doesn’t put it back on the market in a couple of years, I’ll be YET MORE astonished. MARK MY WORDS you guys.

    I’m tired of this house being quoted as being larger than Buckingham Palace. It’s not. It’s larger than the Queen’s personal space in Buckingham Palace, but it’s NOT larger than the entire building.

    The Irish media of all should know this. I’ve read that Buckingham Palace is close to 400,000 sqft.

      I totally agree, nothing irritates me more than people comparing homes to Buckingham palace. (Now I will stop myself from having a rant and leave it at that.)

      Oh and the Official Website of the British Monarchy states that Buckingham Palace is over 70,000 sq meters and for American’s that is 753,473 sq ft (It does say over that size, and though perhaps not the most reliable source wikipedia states it is 77000 sq meters or 830,000 sq ft)
