Apprentice star Karren Brady is selling her sprawling London townhouse for £10.5million – £4million more than she paid for it just two years ago.
The magnificent part stucco-fronted Grade II lasted home is just off Eaton Square in the exclusive Belgravia district.
Baroness Brady – West Ham United’s vice chair – bought the five storey property for £6.4million in 2018 and immediately set about making some renovations, including a basement excavation under the rebuilt rear extension to create a kitchen diner and ‘family room’.

Other improvements included installing new ceramic and stone tile floors with ‘wet’ underfloor heating and kitting out the home’s four bathrooms with electric underfloor heating.
She also secured permission for the installation of a satellite dish, which was to be mounted on a chimney so as to be hidden from street view.
The plush pad – a five minute walk from Sloane Square tube station – boasts four bedrooms, a cream coloured staircase and two reception rooms as well as a ground floor bar.
