Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller’s house up for sale to public bidders

Villa in Charlottenlund listed on property website

Bidding on the home of the Danish shipping magnate Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, who died in April 2012 at the age of 99 as the richest person in the country, is now open to the public. However, the asking price of 24 million kroner will perhaps put some off from making an offer.

The house has been up for sale privately for over a year; potential buyers have had to personally request information from the estate agent. But Ivan Eltoft Nielsen yesterday added the property to the listings on its website.

Swimming pool and wine cellar
The listing only includes photographs of the house’s exterior. The reason for this is the family’s wish for total discretion on personal matters, according to Berlingske Business.

The nine-room house is 635 sqm in size on a plot of land measuring 4,710 sqm. Among its selling points are a swimming pool, wine cellar and “impressive” sculpture of Bornholm granite.

The same estate agent has already sold a number of Maersk’s other properties. The property portal Boliga estimates that the combined sales have been worth more than 60 million kroner.
