As Mark Carney prepares to take on the role of Governor of the Bank of England this summer he and his family are searching for a home in London. Despite being granted a housing allowance of £5,000 per week, Diana Carney has tweeted her discontent with the London housing market, suggesting that she and her husband are having a difficult time finding property in London within their budget.
We have listed below a selection of Prime Central London properties ranging from £4,500 to £5,500 per week. £5,000 per week could secure a 4 bedroom flat in the prestigious Knightsbridge building, located at 199 Knightsbridge, however given its size it would not be suitable for the Carneys, as the family has 4 young children we chose to highlight high specification properties with at least 5 bedrooms.
