Russian Ex-Politician Viktor Khristenko Buys €10-Million Mansion in Sotogrande

28 October 2019 – Viktor Khristenko, the owner of three exclusive golf courses in Moscow and St. Petersburg and who acquired the San Roque Club in Sotogrande this year, has bought a mansion in the area with his wife. The residence is one of six mansions that make up the El Mirador residential complex, in the exclusive ​​La Reserva, which is owned by Sotogrande SA.

The French fund Orion European Real Estate acquired Sotogrande in 2014 from NH. Sotogrande has already sold three of the six luxury homes, while another, which is still under construction, is reserved. The homes, which were designed by the ARK architectural studio, go for approximately 10 million euros each.

The ex-politician’s firm, Golf Estates, is considering a potential alliance with Orion, which has traditionally invested in Spanish shopping centres, such as the Plenilunio, in Madrid, and the Puerto Venecia in Zaragoza.
