GV of 9 Holland Park, London, which has been sold for £54M. See SWNS story SWMANSION; A London mansion with an underground pool and squash court has been sold for almost £55 million making it the biggest deal of the year. The Grade II listed stucco-fronted home used to belong to Richard Branson and is near the Beckhams’ home in upmarket Holland Park. Branson sold it for £17.5 million around a decade ago and, at the time, it was described as being in a “very poor state of repair” having been “neglected” for a number of years. But the owners – a high-flying barrister and financial expert – set about turning it into one of west London’s finest family homes.
