Roman Abramovich buys £30m base in London

£30m home for Roman in London

The Times reported:

How rich would you need to be to afford a gamble on London’s uncertain property market? A fortune of £9.3 billion is cushion enough for Roman Abramovich, who has completed the purchase of a £30 million penthouse in the capital despite his visa woes.

The billionaire owner of Chelsea Football Club is fitting out a 6,000 sq ft residence near its Stamford Bridge stadium.

The steel magnate, who has spent much of his time in London since buying Chelsea in 2003, faced delays to his investor visa renewal this year amid worsening relations between London and Moscow.
