Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani has paid a staggering 100 million euros.
The purchase took place during a visit by the Qatari emir to Turkey two weeks ago, Vatan newspaper said. Reports earlier this week said the house, ErbilginYalısı — which is professed to be the most expensive residence in Turkey and the fourth most expensive globally — had been sold to a Qatari businessman named Mana bin Abdul Hadi Al Hajri.
The house is located on the banks of İstanbul’s Bosporus Strait for his second wife, a Turkish newspaper reported on Saturday.
The purchase was made by a London-based real estate company owned by Mana bin Abdul Hadi Al Hajri in order to conceal the Qatari emir’s involvement, according to Vatan.
The daily said emir’s family saw the 5,800-square-meter, 64-room mansion, as they were touring İstanbul while the emir was having talks with Turkish leaders. The emir then agreed to give the house to his young wife as a gift.
Emir Sheikh Tamim and Sheikha Anoud bint Mana Al Hajri got married in 2009, four years after the emir’s first marriage in 2005. The couple has three kids. Sheikha Anoud’s father, Mana bin Abdul Hadi Al Hajri, is a former Qatari ambassador to Jordan.
