But now the mystery owner – thought to be a rich Saudi royal – wants the place gutted and done again so is selling every single item in a huge auction. None of the 1,250 pieces have a reserve, meaning everything from £70,000 Merino chandeliers to £300,000 gold plated Jade-encrusted bath taps could go for a fiver.
