REVEALED: ‘Anti-elite’ Dominic Cummings lives in £1.6 MILLION Islington townhouse

Downing Street chief and former Vote Leave boss lives in luxurious £1.6 million townhouse with a ‘tapestry room’ – and his wife’s family owns a castle.

Boris Johnson’s ‘anti-elite’ chief of staff Dominic Cummings lives in a luxurious £1.6 million townhouse in the heart of Islington – and his wife’s family owns a castle.

Cummings, who ran the official Vote Leave campaign, regularly rants about taking on a rich and powerful “Establishment” on his blog.

But the Red Roar can reveal that he lives in a £1.6 million townhouse in leafy Islington, a short walk from the posh restaurants and cocktail bars of Upper Street. Shortly after moving in 2013, Cummings got an extension designed by high-end architects Hamish & Lyons that features a “tapestry room”, along with a “formal living room” and reading room.

Cummings is no stranger to grand designs: he is married to Mary Wakefield, deputy editor of The Spectator and daughter of Sir Edward Humphry Tyrrel Wakefield, a baronet who owns Chillingham Castle in Northumberland.

Sir Humphrey’s staff write that he has “two sons and a daughter who are frequent visitors, along with their many friends”, while EU documents show that the castle grounds are home to a herd of CAP-funded cattle.
