One of my favourite multi-millionaires seems to be having a spot of bother on the domestic front. Insurance giant Christopher Moran purchased Crosby Hall in Chelsea with the intention of giving the mediaeval hall (resited in the early 20th century) a magnificent and authentic setting. But he seems so dissatisfied with the work of architect Carden & Godfrey that he has gone to court over the height of a parapet wall, the geometry of the ramp to the underground -parking etc etc. In the witness box, poor Chris has to undergo the indignities of cross-examination by Mr Justin Fenwick QC, who has the temerity to suggest that he hasn't looked at drawings, or actually driven his fleet of expensive motor cars up and down the ramp - all of which turns out to be true. Worse is to come when Simon Thurley, lately curator of the Royal Palaces, now director of the Museum of London and unpaid advisor on the Crosby Hall project, also admits that he has not understood the drawings. Judge David Wilcox makes an early interjection to the effect that an animus between the parties has clouded commercial judgment, and that 'someone will have to pay'. Quite. Crosby Hall is a building with a history. Built in 1466 in the City of London, it accommodated the household of the Duke of Gloucester, best known for murdering his nephews and offering to swap his kingdom for a horse. Sir Thomas More bought it in 1523 for £150 and sold within months for £200. In the world of property speculation, that's Utopia.
