The mansion on Eaton Square was built in 1825. For a long time the building belonged to Cervantes Institute (Spanish Cultural Centre). Andrey Goncharenko bought it in 2014 for 15 million pounds, but since then no one has ever lived there.
This house was one of the four houses that Goncharenko bought in London for the past three years for a total amount of 250 million pounds. Goncharenko also owns one of the most expensive buildings of Great Britain - Hanover Lodge mansion in Regent's Park Royal (120 million pounds), the Mayfair house on St. James Street (70 million) and building in Hampstead (41 million).
Andrey Goncharenko is not included in the Forbes list of billionaires, Forbes magazine. However, British media call him a billionaire and a ‘shadow oligarch’. Kommersant newspaper wrote in July 2014 that Goncharenko worked as deputy head of JSC Gazprom Invest Yug (the contractor company of Gazprom) until 2013.
