Billionaire property tycoon Nick Candy’s luxury two-storey penthouse in Hyde Park has gone on sale for a staggering £175million, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.
The stunning apartment is split over two levels, boasts five bedrooms, a 21m swimming pool, and measures around 18,000 sq ft – the equivalent of almost 18 average homes in England.
Overlooking Hyde Park in London’s upscale Knightsbridge district, it includes a private spa and gym, two terraces, four car parking spaces, a champagne room, a wine room for 750 bottles, a media room and a cocktail bar.
The penthouse, which is thought to be the most expensive in London, also includes a cinema, private library, gym, golf simulator and valet service, according to records seen by the Greater London Properties website.
In an email to Bloomberg News, Candy said offers in Bitcoin and Ethereum will be considered as cryptocurrencies are a ‘big opportunity’. He also called the apartment ‘a world-class real estate asset in the heart of London that will continue to perform as a solid investment for years to come’.

Estate agents Savills and Knight Frank are brokering the sale of the apartment, which was refinanced with a loan from Credit Suisse Group AG in 2018 when the bank valued the property at £160million, a filing to the Land Registry shows.
It was put on the market after Candy received a number of approaches in recent months from potential buyers in the US, Hong Kong and China, according to a source who asked not to be named.
If his penthouse sells, it could be the second mega deal to take place at One Hyde Park this year, after Bloomberg reported how hedge fund boss Suneil Setiya is nearing a deal to buy an unfinished apartment at the projected for around £110million.
MailOnline has approached Candy’s representatives and Savills for comment. Knight Frank declined to comment.
Candy, who is married to singer and former Neighbours star Holly Valance and has two daughters with her, has reportedly made billions with his brother Christian by selling homes to the super-rich.
One Hyde Park was developed by CPC Group, a company owned by Candy’s brother Christian Candy, and a firm controlled by former Qatar Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jasim Bin Jaber Al Thani.
