Glass House Built in London Cemetery on Sale for $8.3 Million

A dazzling glass home in London is on sale for roughly $8.3 million. But as you can see, there’s a catch.

The Gray House.

Knight Frank

The Grey House, a four-story “modern masterpiece” located in North London, has hit the market for £7 million, or around $8.3 million, according to its Knight Frank listing. 

Mike Tracy, the agent in charge of the sale, told Insider the house has barely been on the market for over a month but is already attracting big interest. “The minute it came on, we thought it would be as well because it’s a very widely renowned house,” he said. 

The home, built in 2008 by architects Eldridge Smerin, has won multiple architectural awards including a RIBA in 2009. Built largely of concrete and glass, photos show natural light flooding every aspect of the house. 

However, those floor-to-ceiling glass windows also provide a view of something else: a vast cemetery.
