The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent judge has long been mulling a move, with the house previously reported to be on the market back in 2018.
The music mogul is also understood to have bought up a new family home in Oxfordshire along with his fiancée Lauren Silverman.
Now the sale of Cowell’s six-bedroom London home has been confirmed, after specialist lender Cohort Capital said it had approved a £5.5 million loan for an unnamed buyer to purchase the property for its asking price of £15 million.
“Given the current turbulent market conditions, time is of the essence more than ever in the luxury real estate sector, and we’re delighted to have been able to close this deal in less than a week,” commented Matt Thame, founder of Cohort Capital.
“Our expertise in the industry has proved to be the X factor for our clients, as we understand the importance of speed, reliability and flexibility in securing finance.”
A representative for Simon Cowell declined to comment on the sale.
Featuring off-street parking for four cars, a private bar and a gym, the house is located in a popular area for the rich and famous. Ed Sheeran and the Beckhams are among the well-known residents of the west London neighbourhood.
Amid the art deco design inside, a subtle nod to the millionaire’s music background can be found in the bespoke lacquered ‘piano’ wood doors.
The house’s new owner may even be able to extend it beyond its current size of 5,800 square feet, if they were to get permission for a basement conversion, adding an estimated 2,500 square feet.
Another celebrity homeowner, Dua Lipa, recently won permission to extend her own house in Hampstead. The plans include the addition of an underground swimming pool.
