George Galloway: gaff up for grabs

Assuming you could possibly hack living in Streatham - apologies to anyone that has to - then George Galloway’s five-bedroom South London Victorian abode is on the market, pictured left. It's a real snip at just £825,000. Full details and internal pix can be seen on the Foxtons website:

‘A magnificent five bedroomed family house quietly secluded from the road via substantial front and rear gardens, two beautiful reception rooms, imposing double bedrooms and chic décor throughout. The property comprises two reception rooms incorporating feature fireplace and bay window, kitchen with dining area, extensive utility room, five bedrooms, three en suites, guest cloakroom, garage/covered side access with vast space for parking or storage, further off-street parking and mature garden with patio area and Mediterranean trees. Riggindale Road is conveniently located moments from Streatham High Road, which offers a wide range of shops and amenities while the open spaces of Tooting Common are also easily accessed. Streatham Station (British Rail) is nearby and the A23 offers the motorist easy access to central London and towards the South of England.’

The Times reports:

‘Galloway shared the five-bed house with Amineh Abu Zayyad, his Palestinian-born second wife. The pair seperated in 2005.

‘He now lives in Brick Lane, in the East End of London …

‘Foxtons tell us that Galloway has now accepted an offer on the property. He stands to make a bundle. In an interview last year he declared that the house was mortgaged for a mere £295,000.’

Oh, the London property market, eh? At dinner parties we talk of little else. I see he’s got the same bust of Lenin that I have, though.
