Cherie Blair buys daughter 1m house


The three-bedroom maisonette in a Georgian townhouse in central London becomes the eighth home in the Blairs’ property portfolio.

The property was bought mortgage-free in the names of Ms Blair and her 22-year-old daughter Kathryn, Land Registry documents show.

The purchase has emerged days before the publication of Tony Blair’s memoirs, which are expected to make £5 million for charity after the former prime minister pledged to donate the profits to a good cause.

But that decision has clearly not left the Blairs short of cash.

Their three eldest children now each has a £1-million home in central London, all bought with substantial help from their parents.

Kathryn and her older brothers Euan, 26, and Nicky, 24, all live within striking distance of their parents’ £3.7-million mansion in Connaught Square.

The Blairs have amassed property worth £15m since Blair entered Downing Street in 1997.
Cherie Blair is understood to have paid for the two-storey property for daughter Kathryn, who until recently studied European law in Strasbourg, where she had a scholarship.
She previously studied at the Sorbonne in Paris.
