How much money is too much?

Let me start by saying I don't mean to be judgemental and I love beautiful big homes
 but how far can you or should you go when buying property? 
There has to be a limit?
You only need so much right? 
And considering when the price of these properties below 
(as lovely as they are) could potentially feed thousands and save countries.

I'm talking about the Ecclestone girls Tamara and Petra. 
The 2 daughters of Formula 1 billionaire boss Bernie Ecclestone
 have both decided to put their properties on the market ......


Tamara in her Farrari 599 GTO
At 28 years of age, Tamara has listed her 7 bedroom Chelsea home for approx $32 million dollars.

Comes with it's own turning circle in the back courtyard


Master Bedroom encompasses the entire top level of the home

Love the concept of these sofas in a media room / theatre - I would never leave

Of course a state-of-the-art tanning bed in the gym



24 year old sister Petra is asking only $52 million for her Eaton Square, Belgravia 8 storey home.





Fully equipped gym including pilates equipment

Petra has also purchased the famous Spelling Manor in Los Angeles for a cool $85 million 
and now Tamara, to one up her little sis is looking at purchasing a 
Holmby Hills, Los Angeles home for $125 million!!

Sorry, but these girls have way too much money that they don't know what to do with!

I get that it's prime real estate in London, but ....

 What do you think? How much is too much?

  1. hot damn! wish i had daddy's money too.

  2. Oh dear, if only we could say they worked hard for it.

    Happy NEw Year Sarah!

  3. I do like the bottom one for its simplicity but the first one is super tacky!

    Money really can't buy you taste huh :P

  4. It IS absolutely a crazy amount of money but it is only a very small amount of their father's money percentage-wise.

    I don't think he is doing them any favours but I think it must be difficult when he is so wealthy. No one is ever going to take those girls seriously really which I think is sad for them. One of them seems happy, one of them is probably never going to be.

    Money indeed cannot buy you happiness. Or taste.

    Eaton Square is a dream location - am amazed she is selling it after only just renovating it!


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I LOVE reading your comments!
