Bloomberg’s London Mansion

London’s Chelsea neighborhood is now home to former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg. The seven-bedroom, 6,266-square-foot house built in 1715 now joins the philanthropist’s burgeoning real estate list. Hidden on a private street, the Bloomberg’s home at 4 Cheyne Walk boasts a library, drawing room, three-car garage, morning room, and 91-foot rear garden. Its past tenants include J.M. W. Turner, Mick Jagger, James Whistler, and George Eliot.

The home’s lengthy list of features includes a sweeping central staircase that boasts a Baroque mural of Venus by Sir James Thronhill. Bloomberg made the sale for roughly $25 million USD – a million pounds above asking price – after reportedly outbidding three other interested buyers. Queen Elizabeth II also just recently made him an honorary knight.
