Three-bedroom flat in Monaco sells for over $300 million

British property developers Christian and Nick Candy have sold La Belle Epoque penthouse apartment in Monaco for a record-breaking £199 million (over $300 million) – all the more remarkable perhaps because it was once the scene of a double murder investigation. The apartment was sold to the Candy brothers for just £10 million (now there’s good business for you!) in the early 2000s by Englishwoman Lily Safra whose husband (and a nurse) died in a fire was later found to have been deliberately started.  Of course, it’s on ordinary flat; it’s over two floors, has a double height library, enormous roof terraces with 15ft trees and an infinity pool, a leisure room with billiard tables, a panic room with re-inforced glass and of course a fabulous view of the Med.  A 97-year lease has been taken on the property by a Middle Eastern investor, rumoured to be an Arab sheikh.
