British socialite Petra Ecclestone is selling the historic mansion in London’s affluent Chelsea neighbourhood that she has owned for nearly a decade.

Although Savills, which listed the property, is not publicly disclosing the price, the Evening Standard, which broke the news Tuesday that the home is up for sale, reported that it is believed to be more than £100 million ($AU190,000,000).

Ecclestone bought the Old Church Street property, called Sloane House, from Sir Anthony Bamford in 2010, according to property records and published reports.

Although the sale price was not recorded, a title deed shows that her billionaire father, Bernard Ecclestone, chairman emeritus of the Formula One Group, was a lender and that she purchased it under her married name, Petra Stunt.

Since her purchase, Ecclestone has spent considerable time and money renovating the property.

The international design firm Casa Forma was commissioned to re-do the entrance foyer, drawing room, master bedroom and swimming pool, according to its website, which also notes that “it’s one of the most expensive properties in London” and “boasts the largest grounds in Kensington and Chelsea.”

Ecclestone, who is 31 and has three young children, bought the house around the time she married the 37-year-old businessman James Stunt. The couple divorced in 2017.

Sloane House is not the only property Ecclestone is parting with. Earlier this year, she sold her Los Angeles home, the so-called “Spelling Manor,” in Holmby Hills, for $US120 million ($AU174m).

The property, the one-time residence of TV-film producer Aaron Spelling and his wife, Candy, is the largest house in Los Angeles County.

She bought another property, for only $US22 million ($AU32m), in Brentwood.

Sloane House, which has been designated a Grade II-historic site, was built in the late 18 century.

Made of amber brick, the Georgian-style residence has a stucco cornice, and its understated entrance is graced with an arched patterned fanlight flanked by a pair of Doric columns, according to Historic England, the official database for listed buildings.

The property also includes the adjacent house known as Sloane Lodge, a more demure white-painted building with a domed roof.

A representative of Savills said the listing agents, James Gilbert-Green and Jonathan Hewlett, were not available for comment, and a representative for Ecclestone said she had no comment.
