Updown Court is situated in the village of Windlesham in Surrey, in the UK. The property has 58 acres of landscaped gardens and private woodland and boasts a total of 103 rooms, yes 103!!!
Originally built in 1924 and was acquired by Egyptian Prince Sami Gayed 53 years later, the mansion was damaged by a fire in 1987.
A developer called Leslie-Allen Vercoe, purchased the property costing $38.4M. He then re-developed and re-designed the property which costed him $60M on top of the initial fee! The new development was designed by an Arizona based architectural company who made the Updown Court into the uber luxurious property you see today.
Upon entering the property, you are welcomed by a $3M heated marble driveway.
Out of the 103 rooms, there are 24 bedrooms which have their own marble en-suite bathrooms.
The property has some serious entertainment going on in the form of:
The first floor is mainly designed as the residential area and it has 8 huge bedrooms. The penthouse floors on the other hand boasts two penthouse apartments having 2 bedrooms, reception areas, luxury bathrooms and kitchen in each.
The whole property was valued at $138M in 2005 and in October 2011, the property was sold at almost half the price.

As a tribute to the biggest Bentley engine, the famous 6.75 litre version powering the luxurious Mulsanne limousines, the Bentley 6.75 chronograph from Breitling ramps up the power and the audacity in an entirely black-clad limited series.
This midnight-hued livery, achieved by a special ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment, enhances the sporting style of the satin-brushed steel case with its taut, dynamic lines and its knurled bezel inspired by Bentley’s famous radiator grilles.
The dial also exudes dark elegance, enhanced by a vertical open-worked motif offering a glimpse of the movement.
The caseback springs its own surprise, since the five-spoke motif reprising the distinctive design of Bentley wheel rims also appears in black against the metallic background. The selfwinding chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), is distinguished by its original “large aperture calendar” system displaying the date in a highly readable manner via two distinct indicators: one for the tens and the other for the units.
Issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, the Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon comes on a rubber strap with a central raised motif echoing that of the bezel. Sheer class, clad in black and signed Breitling for Bentley.
