Gottesman Seeking £100M For London House?

Feb 1 2012 | 2:33am ET

A GLG Partners co-founder may be seeking in excess of £100 million for his London home.

Noam Gottesman is listed as the former owner of 6 Palace Green, located adjacent to the British capital's Kensington Palace Gardens. The 16,000-square-foot mansion on the private road is now owned by a British Virgin Islands company called Tamzen, which may or may not be related to Gottesman.

Gottesman has been fond of London's "Billionaires Row," which also features several embassies and an enormous amount of security. Four years ago, he sold another property on Palace Green to Indian steel billionaire Lakshmi Mittal for £117 million.

If Gottesman is behind Tamzen, he's seeking about as much. Aylesford International, which is handling the sale, said it would go for in excess of £100 million.

"This is considered the best address in Europe, not just London," Aylesford's Louise Hewlett told Bloomberg News.
