The former prime minister has splashed out close to £1m on a home in London for his daughter.
In the week that Tony Blair’s memoirs are published news has also broken that he and Cherie have just bought another property – a three-bedroomed maisonette in London, NW1 for their daughter Kathryn Blair for £975,000 (cash). The property price is reported to have been £20,000 below the original for sale asking price.
Whilst it’s tempting to publish the address, we’ve resisted. But we can reveal that the average property value on the street where they bought, according to Zoopla.co.uk, is £883,407 which is higher than the average home value for NW1 – £607,787.
This property is located on a street with 36 properties and the lowest priced property sold since 1995 on this street is number 34 where a transaction took place on 16th July 1996 for £135,000. The most recent house to sell on this street was number 30 which sold for £1,225,000 in October 2007.
This now takes the total number of properties The Blairs own to nine. The portfolio contains some impressive residences and is worth in the region of £15m. Here are two of the other properties they own:
1. The South Pavillion at Wotton Underwood (reported £4m purchase price)
2. Connaught Square, London, W2 (reported £3.7m purchase price)
