The London Empire – Avenfield Flats and Others

Nov 21, 2019

Much has been said and made about a particular politician and his assets abroad – specifically in relation to real estate. Political commentators continue to express their bewilderments on his family’s acquisition of properties worth millions – considering their ‘modest’ income.

The properties along with other wrongdoings led to his dismissal first as the prime minister in 2017, before a heavy defeat in the general elections of 2018 saw him lose credibility in the eyes of the people. Currently, on a medical leave, the 3-time head of state is expected (hopefully) to make a return to the country once he is treated for his illness.

Let’s have a glimpse of his most discussed property; the Avenfield Apartments and its unbelievable features.

Avenfield Apartments

The Avenfield Flats ultimately led to his downfall, as his family simply could not provide substantial evidence to justify the purchase of such a high-end apartment. The luxurious flats are situated in the affluent neighborhood of Park Lane, Mayfair London. The apartments look stellar, with all imaginable amenities at the disposal of the family. What’s more, you ask? The apartments offer direct viewing of Hyde Park and Skyline of the City.

Upon purchasing the apartments, the family demolished the partitioning walls between the 4 portions (16, 16a, 17 and 17a), and converted them into one single apartment – spacious enough to accommodate the entire family.

In total, the apartments comprise of a main drawing room, 7 master bed rooms, 2 fully furnished kitchens (like the ones you see in Hollywood movies), 5 reception rooms, 8 bathrooms, a terrace, a parking area and even has a freaking lift.

The inside of the apartments, as you’d expect is as opulent and majestic as anything – combining sophistication with a woody, rustic element. Clad in off white color and embellished with white marble, Avenfield apartments are reminiscent of a palace – minus the royal servants. Look no further than the bathrooms to get an idea on the free-spending spirit of his family!

This political family used Avenfield as their primary habitat during exile years, and it comes as no surprise that during treatment, the former head of the state will reside in the luxurious abode.

The apartments were brought under the name of a fake offshore company, Nielsen Enterprises and Nescoll Limited, both operating from tax havens like Panama and British Virgin Islands. It remains to be seen what will the fate of the apartments be once a verdict is given against him and his family on the corruption cases.
