The owner of London football club "Chelsea" Roman Abramovich awaits permission for the reconstruction of the real estate on the Thames. According to the newspaper Evening Standard, Russian tycoon wants to combine several sections of townhouses on the Cheney-Wok, built in the XVII century.

Once upon a time in one of these houses lived painter James Whistler, a key precursor of Impressionism and Symbolism. Abramovich will combine townhouses in one big mansion, and oak trees will be planted in the garden, so that the landscape will look like one of the Whistler’s paintings. Also, an art gallery with collection of paintings companion Abramovich Daria Zhukova will be in mansion.

Renovation will cost £ 10 million and continue for three years. After the reconstruction "united" mansion will increase in price to £ 100 million.

Cheyne Walk is one of the most expensive streets in London. Abramovich's neighbor is a rock singer Mick Jagger.
