Chelsea owner Roman Abramovitsj wants to buy shipowner John Fredriksen’s house in London and price is not an issue.

If Fredriksen accepts the offer of NOK 1.2 billion (USD 194 million), it will be an English price record for private properties.

Fredriksen, who is worth at least NOK 25 billion (USD 404 million), has made his fortune of buying cheap and selling expensive. He bought the luxury villa in Chelsea, a fashionable part of London, three years ago for NOK 500 million (USD 80.9 million).

«This is one of the best houses in this city,» said Andrew Langton to TV 2 Nettavisen. Langton is a realtor who knows the area and the house well.

Short distance to the stadium
The reasons why Chelsea owner and oil baron Roman Abramovitsj really wants the property are, among other things; high fences, top standard, large garden, and a short distance to Stamford Bridge

Abramovitsj offered NOK 1 billion (USD 162 million) this summer, but Fredriksen said no.

«The Russian oligarchs have bought properties here, and it has brought the property market to a level we never seen before,» Langton stated.

Wants to move
According to sources close to Fredriksen, Abramovitsj has now made a new offer of NOK 400,000 (USD 64.677) per square meter.

«If the house is sold for this price, the market has reached a new level,» Langton stated.

Fredirksen is reportedly interested in moving out of London, but his daughters attend school in the city and enjoy shopping in Chelsea.
