The house that King Tut bought…

A five-bedroom apartment originally bought with money from the King Tutankhamun treasures has gone up for sale.

British archaeologist Howard Carter purchased the lavish mansion-block building, which is just a stone’s throw away from the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington, when he returned home from Egypt after discovering the tomb of King Tut.

The lavish property in west London is on the market for £9.75million.

Carter moved into the flat in Albert Court when he retired from archaeology in 1932 after making an estimated £15million from his excavation in Egypt – which is around £600m in today’s money.

He lived in the flat until his death in 1939.

His discovery of the pharaoh in 1922 was hailed as the biggest archaeological triumph of the 20th century.
