Abramovich owns a house on Kensington Palace Gardens, known as Billionaires’ Row and home to the ‘who’s who’ of high society.


But despite being a beautiful 16, 000 sq/ft family home the Russian tycoon decided to give it an overhaul.

After eight months of planning work, the Chelsea owner has been awarded permission to build new swimming pool with staff accommodation.

The swimming pool will have a vaulted ceiling, using either bricks or tiles, with light entering via a series of planted water troughs in the garden immediately above.

After first submitting the plans in June 2015, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea green-lit the proposals on Friday.
