Bon voyage….

…to Crayson client, and Gumball Rally organiser, Maximillion Cooper

It’s Gumball time again as celebrities and supercars converge on Covent Garden to participate in the annual Gumball 3000 Rally. Over 100 sensational vehicles set off from London today (26th May) on a 3,000 mile journey across 10 countries to Istanbul in what Vanity Fair Magazine described as ‘the most rock ‘n’ roll car rally ever staged’.
Famed for its outlandish exploits and celebrity participants, Gumball 3000 was created in 1999, when founder Maximillion Cooper invited 50 friends to take part in a 3000 mile drive and party around Europe. Over a decade later, crowds of over a million people attend the rally, and a televised and online audience reaches over 60 million in over 100 countries as fans follow Gumball’s every move.
At Crayson we have more than a passing interest in Gumball as we’re selling Maximillion Cooper’s spectacular Notting Hill home. Set over five floors, the stunning Victorian terraced house in Westbourne Grove has been virtually rebuilt over the course of the last two years. Designed by award-winning architects, Russell Jones, renowned for their imaginative and contemporaryvarchitecture, the interior is relaxed yet cutting edge.
You can see more details and images of the stunning five storey Victorian terraced house in Westbourne Grove here. Not only does it look sensational with its floors of Italian volcanic lava and enormous single pane of glass at the rear, the technology is seriously impressive. Integrated heating and lighting can be controlled by iPhone or Blackberry from anywhere in the world, as can the custom built security camera system.
The accommodation extends to 2,659 sq. ft, and includes large kitchen/breakfast room leading onto the garden, double aspect reception room occupying the whole of the raised ground floor, master bedroom suite occupying the whole of the first floor, four further bedrooms, balcony, terrace and private walled garden. The guide price is £4.9m for the freehold.
Good luck Max from the Crayson team.
