The luxurious penthouse apartment owned by the late Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, has been revamped and sold a year after her tragic death.
Tara was found dead at the luxury Earls Court flat in February last year aged 45. It’s thought her body lay undiscovered for five days after she died in her sleep from a perforated stomach ulcer.
The former party girl had purchased the West London property for £1.7million back in 2005, where it became her base for the next 13 years.
Following Tara’s death, the flat has undergone a total refurbishment and was recently sold to an American buyer for £2.3million.
The spacious home features a large open plan living area and has been given a neutral makeover to attract new buyers.
The flat also boasts a balcony, where Tara often posed for pictures on the sunloungers, as well as a leafy shared garden below.
Tara’s sister Santa Montefiore and brother James Palmer Tomkinson are the beneficiaries of the estate as Tara did not have any children.
Tara died peacefully in her sleep due to a perforated ulcer and peritonitis, her family revealed in a statement shortly after her death last February.
“In the last few weeks Tara was happy, positive and making plans for when she recovered her health,” they said.
Her sister Santa said that she believes the former socialite was “called home” after fulfilling her life’s purpose.
“But I like to think of her completing her life, not ending it short. I don’t know what any of us have come here to do but whatever her purpose, I feel she had done it and she was called home,” she said.
Tara previously admitted she wished she could have done things differently wen it came to her party lifestyle.
“I’d like to go back to that young girl and shake her. I did things I’m very ashamed of. I put my family through so much,” she said in April last year.
“I thought I’d be married and have two children by now. I imagined I’d be living in the country.”
In the last tragic twist in the socialite’s life, Tara reportedly made a will in 2004 in which she left her estate to her children. They could access it when they reached 25.
But as socialite Tara never had children the money went to the families of her brother James and author sister Santa Montefiore.
