Queen Elizabeth’s new neighbor is a Russian oil tycoon

The
Queen
of
England
has
a
new
neighbor

an
anonymous
Russian
oil
tycoon
who
first
viewed
the
property
over
Skype
in
October. 

Windsor
Park
Hall,
next
door
to

Queen
Elizabeth
II
’s
official
weekend
residence
and

pandemic
hideaway
,
Windsor
Castle,
sold
December
23
for
£21.5
million
($29
million),
according
to
the
London-based
brokerage
behind
the
sale,
Beauchamp
Estates. 

“At
the
height
of
lockdown,
we
showed
him
the
house
on
Skype
on
our
phones,
room
by
room,
while
he
was
based
in
Russia,”
Jeremy
Gee,
managing
director
of
Beauchamp
Estates
told
The
Post,
adding
that
the
buyer
has
made
his
fortune
in
the
oil
industry.

The
buyer,
who
has
two
teenage
children
attending
private
school
in
the
UK,
flew
in
on
a
private
jet
to
see
the
house
in
person
before
closing
on
the
home,
Gee
said.

The
nine-bedroom,
18-bathroom
home
is
a
replica
of
Wilfield
House,
the
official
house
of
the
US
ambassador
to
the
UK.
Some
20
miles
west
of
London,
the
property
on
Wick
Road
is
the
biggest
deal
Surrey
has
seen
in
the
past
five
years,
Gee
said.

“Find
me
a
home
in
the
country
with
all
the
toys
and
all
the
facilities
for
teenage
children,”
the
buyer
told
Beauchamp
Estates,
Gee
said.

“They
already
own
a
property
in
central
London,”
he
added,
“but
they
wanted
to
buy
a
home
outside
of
London
so
next
time
when
they’re
there,
they
don’t
have
to
go
into
London”
because
of
the
coronavirus
pandemic’s
severity
in
the

UK’s
capital
.
The
buyer
also
owns
homes
in
Belgravia,
London,
France
and
Lake
Monaco,
he
said. 

The
property
has
seven
acres
filled
with
box
hedges,
fountains,
manicured
lawns
and
gardens
and
tree-lined
paths

plus
a
tennis
court
and
helipad.
