Supermodel Kate Moss bought this London property for £8 million (about $12 million) back in 2007 and is now trying to unload it for £7 (about $10.5 million). But why aren't buyers clamoring to get their hands on the five-bedroom house? Besides having been plagued with bad luck in recent years—first it was burgled, then it was flooded with sewage, and then it was exorcised because, you know, it was haunted.
"There have been no offers as yet," a source close to the real estate agent told the Daily Mail. "The problem with this one is that you’re not in one of the chosen roads in the area. It’s a little bit on the periphery and from a snobbery point of view some people have not gone for it because it’s in the wrong district. As a house goes, though, it’s lovely. If it were a few streets away, it would be much more expensive."
Check out the photo gallery from the listing, above. The three-story early Victorian property boasts nearly 5,000 square feet and five bedrooms.
