London -- An anonymous buyer set a record for the world's priciest dwelling by shelling out $220 million for a six-bedroom London penthouse.million
The Daily Telegraph said Friday the buyer, who some speculate is an oil magnate from the Middle East or Nigeria, will have tunnel access to the Mandarin Oriental hotel from the penthouse at high-end development One Hyde Park.
The Daily Mail said the penthouse also comes with bulletproof windows, a panic room and specially trained guards.
The price tag beat the previous record for the most expensive dwelling on the market, Candy Spelling's $150 million mansion in Bel Air, Calif., the Telegraph said.
