With a sleek open plan kitchen, dining and living area, four bedrooms, a double and triple garage, plus a gym, it’s quick to see why the asking price is where it is. Sam, 26, managed to get permission to build the property in 2016, and now the house is for sale.
Her father, Sir Roger De Haan, is one of the wealthiest names in England. Sir Roger’s joint wealth with his brother Peter, according to The Sunday Times 2019 Rich Listis a staggering £884million, making the pair the 165th richest in the country and fourth in Kent.

Sir Roger, 70, is also listed as spending £18m on sports projects and £42m on arts and creative industries in Folkestone.
The youngest of Roger’s sons, Sam embarked on a successful racing career, making his motorsport debut in October 2017 at the famous Brands Hatch circuit in West Kingsdown. As a supercar collector, he’s owned some truly impressive vehicles, including a Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Nissan GTR.
This collection of cars is reflected in the property itself, with two large garages providing ample work and storage space. So if you have relatively deep pockets and are looking for a new property with plenty of room to accommodate your automotive needs, this might just be the one for you.
